Lotus bringing back the Esprit for 2012

Lotus bringing back the Esprit for 2012

Lotus Evora eagle f

Recent reports state that Lotus is picking up the pace with the development of the much rumoured new Lotus Esprit. The new Esprit will join the new Elise in reaching the market sometime in 2012. The 2012 Lotus Esprit will be developed based of the upcoming Evora (pictured), but it will offer more generous dimensions and have a mid-engine layout. At this stage opinion is varied on what engine will power the 2012 Lotus Esprit, but it will most likely be a chunky V8.

The launch of the new 2012 Lotus Esprit isn’t a certainty yet and remains dependent on whether or not the Evora generates sufficient sales to help fund the development of the new version. If the business environment in the automotive industry improves dramatically, the new Lotus Esprit could see the showroom floor even sooner than the Evora convertible. Stay tuned.
