The Lotus APX (APX stands for Aluminum Performance Crossover) is a concept car created by the British automobile marque, Lotus. It was first introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. It is the first complete vehicle built on the new Versatile Vehicle Architecture (VVA). This vehicle is also a first for Lotus, as it is the first crossover SUV they have ever built.

Engine

The APX uses a supercharged V6 engine. It gives out a displacement of 3 liters. It can go from 0-60 mph in about five seconds. The APX's top speed is 152 miles per hour. The suspension of the APX makes it perfect for off-road use (another first for the Lotus brand).

Design

The APX exterior is very sporty and very slick with the fact that it is all-aluminum. The interior of the APX derives from sportscars, which derives from Lotus' specialty. It features, like any other modern concept car, digital screens, futuristic gadgets, and plenty of buttons. It does feature HVAC control.
