Lotus City Car Concepts Leak

Information and pictures about Lotus' "dawn of a new era" to commence at this year's Paris Motor Show are just seeping out all over the Web. Following Lotus' official preview of the Evora S and IPS and a report that identified the four concepts that Lotus will be showing at the show, grainy pictures of two of the concepts have leaked.

On to brighter, more attractive rumors...

A report published this week on Mibz.com states that Lotus may be borrowing the 560-hp V10 engine from the Lexus LF-A for its Esprit revival. This report diverges from Autoweek's report that the new Esprit would be powered by a turbocharged V8 engine, but is in line with Lotus' allusion that the new concept would offer something more than the original Esprit. The new report indicates that the V10 will be the top-of-range option with a 5.0-liter V8 in the range of 420-hp being another available option.
