Very nice, Bibs... can you ask them to make the new Esprit pretty much like that with 90% of the looks for 90% of the price? 😎

 

 

I’d hope for more like 10% of the price! 🤣

Lovely shape and touches of design innovation for the future !

of course I won’t be one of 130 lucky owners but at least it raises the profile of the brand 

wonder if this will be first steps then eventually lotus name appears back in F1 or even Le Mans ?

Make that 90% OFF the price! 

Stunning car though, great to see Lotus back at the pointy end.

Currently having an illicit affair with another marque, be back in the fold one day... B-)

Lovely Design, good proportion and that interior is also very smart. A beauty. That promise much for the next coming Elise, Exige and Esprit. Bravo!

I agree with all of the above, not much more to add. Love the attention to detail, the aero concept, you don't even notice the lack of tail pipes sticking out the back and looking at stats, dare I say the Valkyrie has just been top trumped. I was sceptical about all electric cars, but if they're like this, then bring it on. How long now before all the big boys, launch full electric hyper cars.

I like it more than I thought I would, given the few things I had heard or read about it. It is very cohesive and pulls the ball forward quite some miles in termes of design.  The rear is indeed unique, I will need to see it more to adopt it completely, but as a statement of intentions it’s a very loud one. I think it makes all our cars look old (and that is a compliment). As a design exercise I think it passes with flying colours. I am also looking forward to the next generation of Lotus for the average Joe (and cross my fingers that they will still be affordable).

That is correct. 250 mile range too and don't forget 0-185 is sub 9 seconds!

Sort of ish. 18 mins with a 350kWh charger. 9 mins with an 800kW charger which doesn't exist but anyone paying this money can install a bespoke charger. Even 18 mins is impressive.

There is a whole realness in the design with lots of LOTUS design DNA love it, advanced without being wacky.

To me the  weight at 1600kgs is a benchmark. That’s the same as most “light” GTs

The range is acceptable at 240 Miles and 18 minutes ? Charge.

I can also see the next Esprit in there. But this time with the Williams hybrid Powertrain from the C-X75.

Ok just  got back home after a day spent in a black zone  with only 10' spent in a zone with enough coverage to have a looks at 3 pics and the official clip... after watching the carfection clip all I can say is What a car!!!  those seats, those pedals, this interior, those details inside and outside, seriously hope they will all trickle down lower down the range.... This is a very cohesive package and that black badge, I love this black badge... I also like the fact that the lotus brand is back on the brake calipers... details I know but so exquisite here.

 

The logic to rebranding the brakes, headlights etc. is because of the Chinese market, they don't own  "Lotus" as a standalone mark.
