Lotus FTW!

I really wish the new Esprit would actually be accepted. We could see a new superlight top-supercar. With 600 PS twin-turbo V6, below 1000 kg weight and 7-speed DCT / manual it would be a 100% perfect supercar. Lotus has so a lot of potential. Just a shame they have problems with finances... They have to create a Panamera-fighter, aka Lotus Elite, to engage sales, and then make a hit with the Esprit. Yeah!

I think that Lotus Esprit Superleggera will be as fast as 458 Speciale!
Lotus forever!
