Don't like it... Gallardo/Elise photoshopped? I hope, that the real Esprit will be much much better, like Elise or APX (or at least as good as new Europa S).

better than i thought but NO to the slates, need to be more agressive and not so elise, roof line is nice, front mouth is a joke, and wheels need changing

Well from what I was told (see Motorshow thread) the front isn't Elise ENOUGH!!!! :blink: :blink: :P:)

Looks a bit of a mixture of the Gallardo Esprit and the rear of the Acari KZ-1. Don,t like the air intakes either.

The former renderings were a lot prettier.

I would imagine that none of these renderings are that accurate as anyone who has seen the new car would have signed a non-disclosure agreement and Lotus will release the details of the car when they want to and not in clues and half-truths to the general public.

As I see it, these pictures are pure speculation and the reason they all have 'elise-isms' is that any motoring journo will expect Lotus to follow the design cues of former albeit recent successful Lotus cars to make their ideas more plausable. The Europa has Elise styling, surely they assume any other new car will have.

However I may be wrong! :blink:

My point is that the salesperson who attended the show is unlikely to divulge information that will potentially cost him/her his/her job. Half truths and rumours :blink:

My point is he wasnt merely a salesperson and had a hand in its final design.

er did anyone read this clicky


The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
