Esprit V8 is a winner
By Dirk989 on


2001 Lotus Esprit V8 2dr Coupe (3.5L 8cyl Turbo 5M)


While not a well know marque, Lotus has
produced one of the top supercars in
the world. Handling has been described
as the greatest ever. I don't
disagree. Performance is unbelievable,
especially with a few reasonably priced
mods. This car will glue you to your
seat and handle curves at speeds
previously reserved for video games.
The styling is not as outrageous as
otherrs, but this is a car that looks
much better in person than in print.
Beautiful, exotic, good fuel mileage,
unbelievable performance and handling
for a fair price. The only flaw is
that the interior, while very well
made, is that of a typical British car -
small and tight.

Best Features

Performance, style, flash, and quality build. The quality build is not usually associated with Colin Chapman, but trust me, the Esprit is a quality build.

Worst Features

The interior is cramped if you are much over 6 foot tall. Rear visibility is limited.
