I read elsewhere that the weight figure is without the optional hybrid system. Not sure about the fancy sliding roof.

I'm sorry but modern trends or not a non-light Lotus is like a reliable Alfa Romeo.

It just doesn't make sense at all.

But those qualities are also incompatible with modern car sales and development.

a 2-tonne lotus (if the hybrid system is not included as part of the weight measurement) is a travesty, punch in the face and piss in the letter box, nonwithstanding, thats a travesty on a Bentley, for christ sake.

So basically it's an expensive Mazda with a big engine?

Quite honestly though it looks like a cross between a 1997 Hyundai Tiburon, the new Mazda 6 and (going out on a limb here) the old Subaru Impreza hatchback.

Lol comparing the various body parts was rather fun.

A scaled-down version of BMW's 1000hp F1 engine would fit nicely
