Paris 2010 2013 Lotus Esprit

To great surprise Lotus plans to bring back the Lotus Esprit. The new Lotus Esprit was presented at the Paris Motor Show just moments ago at a packed stand where attention was shared between no less than four new sports cars wearing the Lotus badge and one city car concept.

The new Lotus Esprit packs a 5.0 liter V8, good for 620hp and 720Nm of torque. As you’d expect, Lotus have engineered a light frame ensuring the car weighs just 1,450kg. The results are supercar worthy: 0-100km/h (62mph) is achieved in 3.4 seconds and the top speed of the Lotus Esprit is 330km/h.

Production will commence in 2012 and the first customers can expect to take delivery in 2013 after writing a cheque for the 110.000 GBP asking price of course. Here are the first pictures of the 2013 Lotus Esprit.

  1. It looks nice. However, I think it could be passed off as a fairly fast sports car, rather than a super car, as there’s no side air-intake.

    Just my thoughts.
