Lotus are well known for building nimble and very well engineered British sports cars in their shed based up in Norfolk. But today they have dated the dawn of a new era in the company to coincide with the Paris Motor Show. The only image that has been released is this rather cryptic shot of Stonehenge.
Speculation in the industry started immediately and most of it rather predictably pointed in the direction of a new Esprit. The car is rumoured to be a rival for the Audi R8, but let’s not forget that there have been sightings of V6 Exige’s and all this could mean is an engine upgrade. But we live in hope of a new Esprit one day, it’s a car that has been absent from the motoring world for too long.
