Just thought that kind of funny. Those cars look fun to drive. Saw one yesterday driving down the road.

He's from OC.net. The esprit kinda reminds me of the older MR2s. Didn't they make twin turbo V8 Esprit?

yeah, they did make a turbo v8 version of the Espirit called Espirit Sport 350. but my favorite of all the lotuses is the Exige, it handles like what one can expect from any lotus but it got more power than an Elise. though with the price tag of $50k+, you'll get a much better car with an Ariel Atom
