2002 Lotus Esprit V8 2dr Coupe (3.5L 8cyl Turbo 5M)
The Esprit is an icon among exotic sportscars. It's limited production numbes ensure exclusivity and first rate personal support from the manafacturer.
It has fantastic looks, and is now very reliable which is significant in this car class, second only to the NSX I would say.
The car has superb handling which requires some getting used to as it's uncluttered by electronic traction control gizmos. It can easily out perform the NSX, 911. Against the Ferrari 360 it's a close affair.
It is surprising comfortable on long journeys although getting in and out can be cumbersome. So for returning your videos you might want something else. Then again it's worth the trip !
