Lotus press release :

this is the car that the true Lotus aficionados have been waiting for:
The ultimate Lotus.
The new Esprit represents the very essence of
exclusive supercar driving. It picks up and exceeds the legacy of it’s
forefathers. Think of it as a statement of superiority. Think of it as
Lotus CEO Dany Bahar’s personal statement of intent, his vision for the
future of Lotus.

Lotus, said: “The Esprit is the ultimate supercar. In the past when
people thought of the Esprit, they thought of the movies, Bond, Pretty
Basic Instinct but this time around, the car is the star of the show.”
has to be very careful when taking on the challenge of reinventing such
an iconic classic as the Esprit – everyone has an opinion. There’s a
fine balance between acknowledging the greatness of the past whilst at
the same time rapidly leaping forward to the future and ensuring that
this car not only does the name Esprit justice but also the Lotus brand.
I think we’ve managed to find the balance and in doing so created a new
icon, a car people will find hard to resist.”
“Not only does the
Esprit look incredible but it has the performance to match. We’ve stuck
to the Lotus core values of performance through lightweight and teamed
them with future technology and exceptional engineering to ensure that
the Esprit will be the leader of the pack. The design is aggressive, you
have to see it to appreciate how low and wide the proportions are but
it still retains a level of dignity, of class and most of all
exclusivity. I’m very proud of this car.”
Powered by a 5.0 litre
V8 pressure charged engine delivering up to 620 PS, the Esprit retains
exceptional performance through it’s unique lightweight design making it
the ultimate expression of Lotus supercar ownership. It is the supercar
that will redefine ride and handling, performance, comfort and
The styling of the Esprit echoes the performance with
strong lines throughout the sleek low body. The symmetry through the
mass and proportion of the Esprit give it an intense look, it’s the
perfect example of the new Lotus DNA in action.
The Esprit is more than an evolution, it’s a redefinition.
