For a while, considering Lotus buy their engines from the Toyota group, as it has for the Elise and Evora. Wishlist included hideously expensive V-10 mounted on the Lexus LFA, the surprisingly affordable V-8, we know from the IS-F, and a new 2.0-liter twin-turbo four cylinder. Now, only the four-cylinder remains on the agenda. For other engines, Lotus decided to travel on their own and design a lighter, more compact and more fuel-efficient. To keep costs in check, V-6 and V-8 is closely related, and this applies not only to the 90-degree angle to the cylinder. The shift towards the V-8 range 4.0 to 4.8 liter V-6 has a sweet spot between 3.0 and 3.5 liters. It is normally aspirated and twin-turbo variants in the works, and Redline is an impressive 9250 rpm.
