Word on the street is that work on the Lotus Esprit is almost finished with the official final sign off just weeks away. According to a report by AutoCar, the new Lotus Esprit flagship close to a production reality and will use a 5.0 liter twin-turbo V8 with an F1-style KERS system. The engine will be mated to 7-speed paddle-shift transmission.
Output will come in around 650-hp and the price is expected to come in similar to the Porsche 911.
When will all this happen? No one has a clue – all we know it’s just close.
