Lotus APX

Lotus is famous for making light sports cars such as the Elise and the Exige. Many of you will probably have seen a Lotus sports car. But the APX is different. APX stands for Aluminium Performance Crossover. This is a crossover SUV designed by Lotus and the first they have ever built. Performance is great, featuring a supercharged 3Litre V6 engine, the car produces 300hp and 266lb/ft of torque. 0-100km/h is done in under 5 seconds and top speed is 245km/h. It also features an all-new, Off-Road suspension, a completely new technology for Lotus. An all-electric version was also shown. 0-100km/h is done in under 4.8 seconds and top speed is 249km/h, a hint faster than the petrol version. Perhaps, this car may make it into production.
