Go-Ahead

Lotus are beavering away in Norfolk to produce the M250 and in the meantime the poor punters are left to ogle the show car which is now doing the rounds of some of the main dealers.

The success with which Lotus keep information under wraps serves to fuel the rumour mill, particularly with the choice of engine still a mystery. Lotus will only say that the engine will be 'Lotus Developed' which could be interpreted in a number of ways.

The favourite was the Renault V6 as fitted to the Renault Clio which Lotus have worked on. Other suggestions include a Nissan unit and a V6 version of the Lotus designed V8. Whichever engine is chosen it will need good environmental credentials as the M250 will be going to the USA too.

It's expected that Lotus will soon be asking those two thousand people who've placed deposits for the car to increase their deposits to confirm their interest.
