    1995 Lotus EspritReview

    V8 Power From 4 Turbocharged Cylinders — The car is a movie classic (Bond, Pretty Woman etc...) and really turns heads. I might as well be driving a parade float. It is beautiful and fast, and was hand built in 1995. Unfortunately, however, Lotuses were hand build in England during a period of labor turmoil. Regardless, I love it even though it has some quirks.

    Pros: FAST, beautiful, hi-revving, turbocharged goodness

    Cons: Lots of rattles in the fiberglass body, hard to find parts, awkward to get in and out

    This Is My Baby. She's Off The Road Right Now, But Soon She'll Have A New Motor And Other Goodies. By Mark

    This car is basically the cheapest super-car you can buy. It's fairly reliable as supercars go. You can actually maintain this car fairly in-expensively due to Lotus' use of GM and Toyota parts to ass... Read More
