The London Motor Show is coming up quick and that means Lotus engineers are working overtime to get the Eagle ready for its time in the spotlight. A video of Lotus' new 2+2 doing its thing on the 'Ring surfaced today that gives us a very brief glimpse of some of the Eagle's details. The cloaked prototype's Metallic Persian Blue mirrors are peaking through the camo, and it appears that the tail lamps are remarkably close to the units fitted on the Elise/Exige. The more we look at this oft-spied prototype, the more we're imagining an Elise that's been upsized by about 30-percent. The bulging fenders, low front end and ducktail spoiler all lend credence to that assumption, but we somehow doubt that Lotus' designers would be that lazy. Regardless, we'll have to wait another couple of months before we get an eyeful of the Eagle.

Hit the jump to check out the video and get up on all the details on the Lotus Eagle in our previous post.

      I believe this is going to be one devilishly good looking car when the camo is finally taken off. I just hope the production version has a tougher tone to it, it seemed to be missing that oumph.

        I disagree... I think this is one of the ugliest cars I've seen in a long time. Those giant, square corners make it look way more bulky than it needs to be.

      Don't get me wrong...I love the Elise and this car looks like it'll be a hell of a contender...BUT...it's hard for me to get excited about a car when its tire-noise is louder than the exhaust. I mean...I know it has a Camry engine in it, but there has to be a way to get a better tone than that.

        "Exhaust by Sawzall" will cure that ;)

        Ha...indeed it will.

      That's really quiet...

      so when can we see this hot car in a bond movie?

      Even though they have a big muffler in the Eagle, the tire noise is amazingly quite. The handling is phenomenal. What do you expect - it's a Lotus.
