The Lotus Elite has been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. On sale in 2014, the Elite is a 2+2 hardtop convertible which measures 4.60m long, 1.90m wide, and 1.32m tall. Styling is virtually identical to the Eterne four-door coupe, but there are minor differences including revised taillights and a sportier dual exhaust system. Power comes from a front-mid mounted 5.0-liter V8 engine which produces 620 PS (456 kW / 612 hp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the Elite to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph). A hybrid variant will also be offered and it will use a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) and a transmission with two integrated electric motors. While the company is staying mum on details, Lotus said the hybrid will have CO2 emissions as low as 215 g/km.
Volvo Car UK has announced the launch of the all-new S60 and V60 R-Design models - created to deliver a dynamic driving experience in a coupé-style saloon or versatile Sportswagon.
The Lotus bonanza continues as the company has unveiled the £110,00 Esprit revival. Set to go on sale in 2013, the car features an aggressive front bumper, LED daytime driving lights, and a center-mounted dual exhaust system. Inside, the cabin has a minimalist design with a sport steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster, and carbon fiber trim. Power is provided by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with 550 PS (405 kW / 543 hp). It is connected to a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission, which should enable the 1495 kg (3,296lb) car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in under 3.5 seconds. Of course, if that doesn't sound fast enough, Lotus will happily sell you an Esprit R with 620 PS (456 kW / 612 hp).
The Jazz Hybrid is making its world motor show debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, further demonstrating Honda's continuing commitment to petrol-electric hybrid technology. The launch of the latest addition to the Jazz line-up marks the first time a parallel hybrid vehicle has been available to B-segment consumers. The Jazz Hybrid will go on sale in some European markets in the early part of 2011. Prices and full specifications will be announced in due course.
Lotus has stuned the media with the Eterne four-door coupe unveiling at the Paris Motor Show today. Details are limited, but the car is based on 2014 Elite. This means power will likely be provided by a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 620 PS (456 kW / 612 hp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. A hybrid variant will also be offered and it will use a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) and, possibly, a Lexus-sourced transmission with two integrated electric motors. Set to go on sale in 2015, the Eterne will carry a base price of approximately £120,000. Stay tuned for more photos and details.

Review of the Audi RS5
Bentley has unveiled the redesigned 2011 Continental GT. While it looks virtually identical to the outgoing model, the company assures us every body panel is completely brand-new. A closer inspection will reveal the creases are more prominent, the beltline is higher, and the side windows are slightly longer. Other differentiators include new taillights, Mulsanne-inspired headlights, and a revised grille. Like the exterior, the cabin only sees minor modifications. The overall design carries over, but there is a new infotainment system, a floating center stack, and higher quality materials. Thanks to slimmer front seats, rear seat passengers are awarded an extra two inches of legroom.
Debuted at the Paris Motor Show (alongside the redesigned Aveo, Cruze hatchback, and Orlando MPV), the updated model features a redesigned front fascia, a larger grille, and a restyled hood. Other changes include modified headlights, revised door mirrors (with integrated LED turn signals), and new side vents.
With a power output of 408 hp, outstanding vehicle dynamics and emphatically sporty equipment, the new 911 Carrera GTS ascends to the pinnacle of the Carrera model series. 23 hp more than the 911 Carrera S enable the new GTS -- available as Coupé and Cabriolet -- with 3.8-litre engine to close the gap up to the 911 GT3 with 435 hp. This additional sportiness goes hand in hand with the economic advantage: thanks to Porsche Intelligent Performance, the new top sports car consumes no more fuel than the Carrera S in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), and is also priced very attractively due to its extensive standard equipment. The new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will celebrate its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in early October.
