1984 Lotus Esprit Review
Fantastic Performance And Looks — This was one of the best cars I have ever owned and driven since. It handled like it was on rails and went 0-100 in less the 5 sec. Great sounding engine and a pleasure to drive. Build quality was not that hot but hey you can't have everything.
Pros: Handled like a dream
Cons: Build quility and reliability
