Very much of it's time - mid-60's to mid-70's. Very much Marmite in terms of styling.
However, it was a proper Chapman Lotus.
I know this because the Wikipedia page descends into nerdism about bushes within about 10 seconds of reading:

Had a sit in a Lotus Exige last weekend, very different environment to the 4C, the 4C is more Ferrari 458 like (lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time in those) in cabin design.
The Lotus, well going to be kind and say it feels very rudimentary but like the 4C there is quite a bit of theatre...
Back in the mid-80s I purchased a 1967 Lotus Elan 2+2. Rebuilt the engine and the bodywork was superb.
A few months later the darn thing caught fire. It was repairable but sold it cheap.
Looking at modern prices and Lotus have shot through the roof. It was a beautiful colour (Metallic purple...
Great new video of journalist lapping the Nordschleife in 8.18. on a slightly damp track and with traffic. I am afraid that I didn't check to see if he got into sixth!

So, I'm very interested in getting a Brera as my next car particularly the 3.2L V6 (or the 'S' if I can find one). I have spent an absolute fortune on my current car and have been told that it's far too impractical for anyone to use and therefore I am having to sell my beloved Lotus...
My Mate is selling his Lotus Esprit that has had a lot of work done on it inspired by the 80 BA concorde livery.
It's a fab car, and I'm hoping to get a drive of it before it goes.
Having become quickly bored with the M6 after leaving Manchester, I took to the hills and had a blast through the Lake District. With the light fading fast, I eventually managed to tear myself away from the adrenaline rush for a quick photoshoot near the Kirkstone Pass.
Not a lot to...
One of the most beautiful and great handling British supercars produced. In its final incarnation the Esprit had a V8 instead of the original I4. This edition retains the front lip spoiler that was used the the Sport 350 for added stability at higher speeds.

Hi all, I am new to this forum and would appreciate your views if possible. Due to buying a dog and wanting a "more practical" drive, I have decided to sell my lotus 111s which to be honest I have really enjoyed driving etc, over the last two years.
I have test drove most makes of car and am...
This time we have a small and agile British sportscar. The trick is that it's lightweight, and that in turn gives it impressive performance even if the engine isn't too powerful. A track toy, in short.
Engine: Toyota 2ZZ-GE Straight 4
Displacement: 1,796 cc
Power: 136 bhp...
