Lotus Brings Back The Espirt, at Least as a Concept

The Lotus Esprit has always been the best looking of all the cars we might be convinced could turn into a submarine, and at the Paris Motor Show, Lotus showed us the best looking Esprit to date. Of all of the concept cars that Lotus paraded around in Paris, this is the most true to form. The styling has just the right mix of the old car and new ideas. The front end on most of the Lotus concepts look good, but this is mainly because they borrowed heavily from Aston-Martin's styling.

The Esprit's doesn't though, it looks great in its own right. Lotus has made a departure from convention when it come to the engine, fitting the concept with a 5.0 liter supercharged V8, producing 620 horsepower. This car is appealing on quite a few levels, so watch your local Lotus dealership for its appearance in spring of 2013.
