Lotus comes up with a sneak preview

We're only 28 days away for the Lotus Eagle to be unveiled. For the past time, we've written a lot about this new Lotus car and how it will look like but apparently Lotus is giving us a sneak preview already.

This impression was found on the Lotus 60th Anniversary website. Lotus will celebrate its anniversary on September 14th in Hethel with a big event. On the image we see a couple of head lights which are quite similar on the Elise and Exige. This car looks a bit higher though but it seems the big grill is still present.

Video: Ferrari flyby's

Two of Ferrari's best cars are the F40 and F50. There is not really a introduction needed for this video, the only thing you need to do is turn up your speakers because this F50 is loooouuud!



So there is another video as well A guy is driving his Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale when some other Ferraris are flying by, watch the guy in the orange Stradale in the end for his view on a 'flyby'.....

Video: Lotus Elise on track

It's well known that driving on the track is something completely different than driving on the road. A normal road... Check out the video below, this guy is racing in his Lotus against other Lotus cars but it seems he really knows what he's doing. Tailgating wherever possible and overtaking where there is barely any space available. It also seems his car is a bit faster than all other cars in the field as overtaking looks so easy in this video.

New artist impression of the Eagle

Another artist impression of the 2009 Lotus Eagle. We're only a month away for it to be unveiled but Topspeed made their version of how the car could look like after all those spyshots. The 2+2 Eagle will be for sale by the end of this year. Lotus will place the Eagle between the Elise en the new Esprit, which will be unveiled somewhere in 2010. If you fancy buying an Eagle, prices start at 90.000 USD.

The Lotus Eagle will get a V6 engine which comes from the Toyota Camry. Of course the engine has been tuned a bit so it produces 300 bhp max. More details in a month time!

Count the Veyron: ehh....all 70?!

Okay, so we know there are gonna be about 300 Bugatti Veyrons but how many of them have actually been delivered? Well, we guess about 150, so that means we're halfway production. A very rich Dutch person just received his Veyron. It's not a big surprise most of these hyperfast cars come in two colors, for some reason not many people prefer a single color.

This guy started to collect photos from every colour which leaves the Bugatti factory in Molsheim, France. We've counted almost 70 different colour schemes, including the pink-ish flower one which is said to be photoshopped.

Which one is your favorite?
