Lotus Does the Time Warp

Discussion in the Lotus owners forums.

1975. Ah what a year (not so for Nixon advisors but hey you can’t please all the people). The Watergate verdicts aside, 1975 was the year we saw Jaws encourage people to stay out of the sea, Margaret Thatcher become the first female leader of the Conservative party and the future face of British football emerge as David Beckham first drew breath.

New Esprit gets green light

Lotus has finally given the green light to a replacement for the Esprit, a model that will have an essential role in boosting the Hethel firm’s brand image.

Key elements to the Lotus strategy have emerged weeks before new CEO Danny Bahr is due to reveal his seven-year plan for the company.

an Esprit was spotted burning to death on the A27 in Sussex on Saturday afternoon. The wreckage was apparently still there today

Yep, it was once a beautiful 1982 S3 Esprit owned by a chap called Andrew. He posted on LEF yesterday that it had gone. I only saw it a few days ago at Goodwood Brekkie club.

A few miles after refulling at a petrol station, Andrew pulled onto the side of the road because of the fire. It all happened extremely quickly. The fire brigade couldn’t get it under control.

Lush Lotus comes at a price

LOTUS has finalised pricing and specifications for its Evora coupe, which starts $13,000 lower than announced a few months ago at Melbourne’s motor show. Its $149,990 entry price will be a start; leather seats, cruise control and premium features are extra. The on-road cost of a well-equipped 2+2 model will be about $200,000.

The Lotus Evora – cheaper than you thought it would be.

Lotus hopes to encourage early buyers with $19,000 in options fitted standard on the Launch Edition, here in the third quarter. Spokesman Jon Stretton says the previous figure was only indicative and the long options lists compares with the way rivals such as Porsche priced their cars.

Thousands of people flocked to a Norfolk race circuit this weekend to watch and take part in a record-breaking car festival.

The two-day Lotus Festival at Snetterton saw more than 430 Lotus car drivers from around the country take to the track at the same time, and the festival organisers hope the parade will be confirmed as an official record within the next six months. Previously, the world record was a parade of 313 Lotus cars, completed at the Brands Hatch race circuit in Kent in 2007.
