over 3 yrs ownership

2002 Lotus Esprit V8 2dr Coupe (3.5L 8cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I have driven it daily for over 3 yrs and has been extremely reliable. I am so use to people making double takes when they see it on the road that it feels strange on the rare occasion when it does not occur. The performance is way beyond what I can explore and the exhaust note with the center exit U.S. exhaust is phenomenal and sounds only like exotic european cars can. The interior is very intimate and memorable and feels very nice once settled in. I think the exterior is one of the most beautiful, exotic shapes to date and still looks modern after all these years. I have owned Porsches and Ferraris and this is the most satisfying car yet. Don't be scared to take the plunge and get one.

'02 Esprit

Review

Bought it 2 weeks ago. Have owned a Boxster, 911, Ferrari 308 Quattrovalve and a Testarossa and I go out to the garage at night just to look at this one more than the others. The interior is gourgeous in tan and the wheels are the most beautiful I have ever seen. The twin turbo acceleration is the best I've ever driven and the exhaust is pleasantly loud. Major service is maybe $1200 and was $5000 on the Testarossa. Other accessories and parts much more reasonable also. I am using as everyday driver and I fully expect it to be reliable.

After having both a Ferrari 355 and 360, I can say that the esprit is the best car out there for the money!! This thing just goes and is much more exclusive than a Ferrari

A Real Review

Review

In my opinion as a long-time Porsche owner I can make an honest comparison. I feel that from 1998 onwards the Esprit is a very usable and reliable car that is even more fun to drive then then nearly every Porsche, Ferrari 355, corvette and a viper. I have had nothing but pleasure without any headaches. Keep care of the Exclusive Lotus and it will keep good care of you. From reading some reviews, it is painfully obvious that the ratings are performed by individuals that have never owned any of the cars but just had an hour or so of driving.

Esprit V8 - Last of the Breed
By Paul Hatz on 09/23/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2002 Lotus Esprit V8 2dr Coupe (3.5L 8cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

It has more punch than than comparable Ferraris 355 and 360, thanks to the turbo, and it has a trunk, which they don't because of their large normally aspirated intake systems (the twin turbo design allows for a remarkably small and light engine design in the Lotus V8). Forget about all the garbage about it not sounding good, junk the exhaust and install straightpipes and this thing sings! You will get more compliments and looks with a nice Lotus V8 than any entry level Ferrari.

A Real head turner

Exotic looking car. Somewhat practical. What can you say with a car that is only waist height. Getting in and out is difficult. Styling is timeless.
