Lotus Releases Pics of APX Concept

The lightweight lovers at Lotus (a totally unplanned alliteration, honestly) released press-ready shots of the company's Aluminum Performance Crossover (APX) concept. Not an indication of the company's production plans, the APX is a showcase of Lotus Engineering's aluminum Versatile Vehicle Architecture (VVA), which it would gladly outsource to any carmaker who'll bite. The four-wheel-drive APX seats 5 + 2 (the far rear seats are jumpers) and is powered by a 300-hp, supercharged V6 gas engine — though it weighs in at a svelte 3,461 lbs. (More pics after the jump.)
