2010 Lotus Eagle Hatches Six Days Ahead Of Schedule

Illustration for article titled 2010 Lotus Eagle Hatches Six Days Ahead Of Schedule

The 2010 Lotus Eagle has landed almost a full week ahead of its planned reveal at the British Motor Show. This single image was released on the Car Magazine website only moments ago, and we have it in full-sized glory, along with specs, after the jump.


As expected, the 2+2 features styling borrowed liberally from the Lotus Elise while taking a more grown-up spin on the Lotus design theme. A Toyota V6 lurks in the back, good for 276 HP and somewhere north of 250 lb-ft of torque. The whoa on the other side of the go is a set of 13.7 inch AP Rotors with four piston calipers and the whole enchilada rides on Eibach springs and Bilstein shocks. Those back seats seem to be designed with kids in mind and adults for very short trips, thankfully they (the seats not the adults) can be removed with the check of an option box. What can't be removed is the Alpine sound system with Bluetooth and iPod connections, standard air, traction control, ABS and leather cladding. Wonder how Mr. Chapman would feel about that?

There's a little GTR in the roof line and C-pillar area too, and more than whiff of Ferrari in the haunches. It's a nice looking care though, and if Lotus can continue their trend of the last few years with affordable, fun, high-performance cars, this one will be another winner.
