Some Esprit's snapped at the LEGS meet in Alford at the weekend.








I came into this world screaming and covered in someone elses blood. I'll probably leave it in the same way.

So much nicer than the 308 behind it.

A superb car!


Sorry for saying this Guys, but this Esprit is so much nicer than all the modern cars Lotus makes today. A far more exotic looking supercar! So much better design. Much more elegant, while being intricate, tough and looking like it's going very fast while even parked.






I agree.  


At this show, I had an usual number of people asking me about the Esprit in a manner that they were serious about buying one.  I do think with all the skyrocketing prices of the Esprit's peer from those periods, word is getting out that they are the bargain of the times.

+1; Why whenever we see some design tagged as the "next Esprit" do we get some generic Gallardo/McLaren/noble/Metoo predictable cab forward modern interpretation of *the supercar* . Porsche have done very well for themselves honing the 911 shape over the years, I don't see why the basic outline of the Esprit which is just as iconic couldn't live the same length of time.

I agree!

As Peter Stevens did with the original Esprit. It would be great to see this design exercise done again.


Please Lotus make the next Lotus Esprit look like ........a Lotus Esprit.
