Lotus has announced plans to introduce three new vehicles at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The company is keeping specifics to themselves for now, but one of the models will be an Elise S with a supercharged 1.8-liter engine that develops 220 PS (162 kW / 217 hp). It will replace the Elise SC and offer improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

The other two models remain a mystery, but they are being teased as "adrenalin-filled" return to motorsport discipline and "one of the quickest road cars" they have ever created - possibly the 2012 Exige.

If that isn't enough, there will also be an Evora GTE special edition which has a race-tuned engine with over 444 PS (327 kW / 438 hp).

Lastly, Lotus will introduce the SPS (Serial Precision Shift) transmission on the Elise and the IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) transmission on the Evora S. The latter model also benefits from "significant quality improvements following extensive development work and feedback."
