That a new Lotus Esprit is coming up is known for some time now. But more significant details and rumours were published by Autocar this week. It says that the 2010 Lotus Esprit is likely to get a 4.4 liter V8 producing about 500 bhp. This 4.4 liter V8 is supplied by BMW and can also be found in the all-new BMW X6.
The Lotus Esprit has always been a special car known for it’s driving pleasure. We have good hopes the BMW influence combined with Lotus heritage takes the new 2010 Lotus Esprit to a higher level than it’s predesessor and form a rival for established names as Ferrari and Porsche in terms of driving fun.
