I think it's pretty cool too, but I always loved the Lotus Esprit! You never see those around anymore!
You never saw them around when they were new! :laughing: Seems they broke down constantly and most lived almost endlessly in the repair shop.

Heard that from quite a few folks.

True:laughing:

I just remember it from the movie "Pretty Woman." That car was so totally bad ass!:thumbsup:

You would just think you would see them at car shows but I never ever do.:huh:

That is not mid engine design. That would make it the first car from lotus in 40 years with the motor infront of the driver:surprised

launch in 2014 with 620 hp and 180,000 pricetag[/QUOTE]

That's hot, but I'd drop the price by $145,000, drop the hp by 250, put a Hyundai logo on the front, and call it the next generation Genesis S.

I think that would be more profitable.

The Esprit is still my fav but I like this one too except for the $180K price tag. That price range I would be thinking Aston Martin DB9, Porsche 911 GT3 or maybe a used Ferrari 430.

Indeed, I totally agree. It's a nice car, but it is obviously a Toyota, not a Lotus. The design really is nothing special at all. It looks to asian, too mundane. And at 180 000$, I doubt it will sell.

Bring back the Esprit, that was a Lotus!
