Lotus Esprit V8 Car Review
The esprit was first shown in 1972 at the Turin motor show and more recently the unique jagged Italian design appeared in the 90's with a V8 twin turbo engine, built in-house by Lotus, producing 355BHP. The styling is still firmly based on Peter Stevens overhaul in 1988, it will never look like the AMG's or the M series, but the performance is just as good.. Full Lotus Esprit Review

The Lotus Exige GT3
More recent models include the Exige (pictured above), the Eleven, the Elise, the Esprit and the Europa. Incidentally almost all of those models have a curb weight of less than a tonne (the Esprit is slightly heavier). You'll also notice the chassis of the Lotus Elise has been used for the Vauxhall VX220.
Lotus Exige - 0-60mph - 3.9secs in the Exige
The new exige prototype was on show at Geneva last week sporting a 271BHP engine in a frame weighing less than a tonne. This gives a power to weight ratio large enough to fill the ego of any motor head out there! While the car hasn't yet begun commercial production, Lotus will be delivering the car sometime in 2008.
