The first new model from Lotus in 13 years will be called the Evora.
The new car will be powered by a 278bhp 3.5-litre V6 and is tasked with attracting new customers to the Lotus brand.
It's now the biggest car in the Lotus range, with two seats in the front and two bucket seats in the rear.
There will be new derivatives planned for the future, including a convertible, which will be built at the Lotus plant in Hethel, Norfolk. Production will be limited to 2,000 cars a year.
