The Lotus Eagle was the code name given to an all-new model for the Lotus lineup. The 2+2 coupe featured stylish lines which are instantly recognisable as belonging to a Lotus, especially from the front and rear.

The Lotus Eagle, which went into production named the Lotus Evora, is powered by a mid-mounted 3.5 litre, Toyota-sourced V6 engine equipped with variable valve timing. The ECU (electronic control unit) has been designed in-house by Lotus, and provides a more sporting character to the engine. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels. This drivetrain allows the Eagle to reach 60 mph in under 5 seconds, and continue on to a top speed in excess of 160 mph.

The chassis of the Lotus Eagle is a lightweight aluminium unit formed from three pieces. The rear structure houses the V6 engine and compact double wishbone rear suspension. The centre section is the passenger compartment which features side imact protection and a tubular steel seatbelt anchorage frame that also acts as a rollover structure. And a bolt-on front structure carries the double wishbone front suspension and provides a crash structure.
