So, I saw a Lotus Esprit for the first time today...

In real life, at the other high school in my district.

Stunning. Simply beautiful. It must have been a late 80's or early 90's model, and it was breathtaking.

It glid along the road like it was riding on air...No effort at all. So beautiful to watch.

I'm definitely buying one when I get older :thumbsup:.

The new corvette Z06 is roughly the price of a new viper and would smoke the viper in a race

The I-4 Esprit would kick both their asses. It's 0-60 is ~4 seconds.

whatever kiddies....i think you're gonna have to change your pants when you hear about my.......93 FORD EXPLORER.....uhhhh...yea thats a four liter under there buddy....watch my paint job.


She gets about 70...75...but if i really put the pedal down....i can get this bad boy up to 87mph.....you can barely hear the rattling with the wind racing through like that. A/C....pffft....who needs A/C when two of the four windows actually....roll down...its a showroom term....get this....I dont even have to crank the little handle thing....at the push of a button...voila!. Close your mouths boys...you'll get your little piece of heaven one day.

Fix or Repair Daily. Built Ford tough!

We had a 1990 Volvo 740GL. You would NEVER know it was a '90...180,000 miles and it ran like a champ.

Volvo's engine and vehicle durability > all.

Hehehe... Volvo = Ford

Ok, well Ford owns Volvo... Jaguar, Astin Martin and a few others too...

Sure the Esprit might not be the fastest car on the road but it's the second best looking car ever designed. Anyone can have a Viper or a Vette and go fast... But not everyone can drive the Super Model of the car world...

I like the Lotus, 'Vette, and Viper. All of them are extremely good cars, but I prefer something a little older like a Challenger or Camaro. I read something about the new 'Vette Z06, supposed to be the Viper killer. Isn't it supposed to be an '06 model?

I know, isn't it the best car mankind has ever made?

Insanely fast, beautiful, and above all, RELIABLE.

They NEVER break down.

Yeah, but the Elise isn't very fast, and I'm not a fan of it's frontend.

The Esprit will always be #1 in my book. I'm definitely going to buy one when I get older.
