Lotus unveils 5 new sports cars

Lotus revealed a range of new sports cars at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, much to the surprise of the audience.

The British car manufacturer expects to put the five new models Elise, Elite, Elan, Esprit and Eterne on the road by 2015.

If the cars meet expectations and demands rise, the company can rest easy, already having entered the competition for the top sports ranges. Lotus hopes to battle with the likes of Ferrari, Aston Martin and Porsche for the top spot.

The two-seater, two-plus-two, GT and four-door models were introduced by a number of Hollywood stars, leaving the audience dazzled by the new collection.

Lotus also intends to make a small city car.
