Geneva 2016


Recommended Posts

So Geneva International Autoshow is upon us. Lotus hasn't confirmed yet their presence, but it appears that they will be there according to a recent posting.

The Lotus 3Eleven will make it's "big" first international appearance. They introduced the refreshed Exige Sport 350 recently but is yet to make the show rounds. Rumour has it that the Evora roadster would be introduced in the fall. However they used last year show to present the Evora 400. 

So what other novelty from Lotus are we likely to see at the biggest car show of the year ?

Lotus unveils fastest ever line up at Geneva 2016

 

Lotus CEO, Jean-Marc Gales, will be centre stage on the Lotus stand at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show to personally remove the covers from the company’s fastest ever line up of production road cars.

On the Lotus stand there will be four cars – two of them being the Nürburgring lap-shattering Lotus 3-Eleven and the fastest Lotus Elise, the Cup 250, along with two new sports cars making their debuts.

Yup, I saw it elsewhere first so it looks like no-one elected to take any notice of the embargo on this announcement.

Still, can't wait to see what the 2 new cars are.

I'm thinking Evora Cup...

Posted on MLOC a few months ago:

There's certainly a "place holder" on the Lotus website for an Evora Cup ;)

 

http://www.lotuscars.com/evora-cup

 

It's a picture of the old Cup car, but the text hasn't been set, and according to the wayback machine back when the original Evora Cup was launched the site structure was a little different ;)

i dont think this will be the new Evora CUP. Because Lotus wrote: "remove the covers from the company’s fastest ever line up of production road cars." The old Evora CUP was not road legal i think...

Evora Cup by looks of lightweight forged wheels, "black" side windows, front bonnet/grill area.

Lighter 2+0 variant?

I can't help but think it's a deliberate rouse to hide the roof... more than an accident to position the car cover like that.

However, if it's NOT the roadster now, many will be disappointed I think, more than those who are excited about an Evora Cup.

"Fastest line up of production cars"; 3-11, 250 Cup already known about so the 2 new cars are surely the fasted production versions of the Evora and Exige, guessing the 350 Roadster which presumably will be the fastest Exige Roadster to date and whatever Evora is under the blanket - here's hoping for the Cup.

Looking at the picture, that air intake on the side of the Exige looks very shiny, maybe even Carbon Fibre, can't imagine that would be on anything other than a Cup variant?
