Video: Lotus Esprit teased along with new V8

Lotus Esprit V8 Test

Lotus has just dropped a video teasing its upcoming Esprit model and its new V8 engine that is currently under development.

The model is expected to hit roads next year. The new V8 will have a displacement of 4.8 liters with power to come in around 612-hp. It will be mated to 7-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic transmission – allowing it to go from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds with a top speed of 212 mph.

Obviously, we’re pretty excited for the new model.

Check out the video after the jump.
