Just a week ago, the spy photographers snapped the world first photos of Lotus `Project Eagle` test auto, mostly showing the rear and front of the car. We`ve got now two additional pictures providing a better idea of the vehicle`s size and side profile.
About Project Eagle little is known at this point, but itâ€™s believed that the auto will be powered by Toyota-sourced 3.0L V6 making about 300 horsepower. Sources indicate also that a base unit with a V6 2.5L could be offered also. Whatever the powerplant, its power is expected to be placed to the rear wheels through a paddle shift gearbox.
The officials from Lotus said that the vehicle's back seat will be accommodating younger children, so it could indicate that itâ€™ll function more as an extra storage room rather than a functional seating.
Going in production in the first part of 2009, the coupe has its base on the VVA (Versatile Vehicle Architecture) shown in APX (Aluminium Performance Crossover) Concept. So, a convertible variant might be following the coupe.
