Proton lends Lotus a helping handEnlarge Photo
Plans include introduction of a new lightweight sports car similar in ethos to cars like the Elise and Exige, and increased production of vehicles wearing the Lotus badge. Lotus has always been a very innovative company, using its expertise in engine and chassis engineering to co-develop new vehicles with the Nanjing Automobile owned MG Rover. They've also recently won a deal to build American company Tesla Motors’ awesome electric roadster.
We can expect to see a whole new range of cars in the near future with the superb handling dynamics that Lotus is renowned for.
Pictured above is the new Lotus Europa, a more practical sportscar that's easier to live with on a day-to-day basis.
