An Owner's Review: 2003 Lotus Esprit V8
By Owner of 2003 Esprit on
Vehicle
2001 Lotus Esprit V8 2dr Coupe (3.5L 8cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
Frightening fast car, difficult to drive slow. Don't mean b/c u "want" to drive it fast, I mean b/c IT wants to drive fast. The gas pedal is either on or off, as is clutch. Brakes similar, risk a face plant if not careful to go gentle on pedal. Not easy to drive, but has its rewards. Downsides: (there are several), forget about getting it if you are shy, everyone WILL react to it, sometimes positively, sometimes not. This leads to things that weigh on your mind. As in, can I just park this car anywhere?(ans: no). Do I need to plan my trips? (ans: yes). The car nose is unbeleivably low. Remember this is not a Porsche911, it is a supercar.
Favorite Features
Turbo engines have uninspiring exhaust note, firing up this car, u will forget all that. Opens w/ wonderful ear splitting blast,idles lumpily then reveals a very IRATE V8. Turbo burble on overrun,exhaust rasps,howls like a banshee & causes pedestrians to leap in horror. Oh ya.
