Lotus Engineering Concept to Premiere in Geneva

Lotus Engineering, the company's soldier-of-fortune division best known for engineering parts of other carmakers' cars, will show off a new design concept built on its latest kitbag, the VVA (Versatile Vehicle Architecture), in Geneva this year. Despite its 3-liter, 300 hp V6 and other accouterments, don't think of the APX concept as a harbinger of some new Lotus-badged SUV; it's a product demo of the VVA platform, which the division hopes to sell to other carmakers. VVA, the company says, will allow very different looking cars to be built on a common architecture. Of course, Lotus will use the platform in house too, particularly as the basis of its new Esprit V8 supercar, expected any year now.
