The car shouldn’t be confused with a new vehicle being pitched by the ex-Caterham CEO, Ansar Ali, who has plans for a vehicle known as Project E10. Developed by Zenos, the Lotus Elise-based sports car is set to be powered by a Ford 2.0-litre offering around 150kW. It’s understood the car will weigh around 650kg.
