Esprit Engine


Recommended Posts

Okay, let's get all bleary-eyed and daydream for a moment ...


The new Esprit is a goer; however, the Wolf Zimmermann V8 project is not so it needs an engine ...


What would you all like to see?


I'd go for the Lexus LFA V10 - 4.8 litre, naturally aspirated, 522 horses and revs so fast that it needs a digital tachometer as they could not find an analogue version which could keep up. Not too sure whether the cost would be prohibitive, though ...


Or maybe Frank Profera's unit ... :huh:

The new Esprit is not a goer at the moment as I understand it. It has been put on hold at this time and has been for some time. I hope it sees the light of day and gets go to showrooms but who's knows what the current management are waiting for/thinking right now.

Engine. Yes agree Lexus V10 would be adequate. ;) At this stage of 'on hold' I'd just be happy to see it with any engine, be it anything reliable and quick.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

I probably should have made it clearer that it was a daydream! 


Edit: 'Hypothetically, the new Esprit is a goer; ect. ect. ect,
