Wonderfully British by NumisMaticBullion on 12/11/2007. Trim: 1999 Lotus Esprit V8, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Shape, Very Rare, Speed, Sound @ Full Throttle
Cons: Maintenance costs, Parts availability
Overall review: If you like to fly under the radar; don't get this car. Most commonly asked question---- Is that a real Ferrari? Still as fast as or faster than anything you'll encounter on the highway. Great fun, cool sounds and totally unique.

Awesome by Vince on 08/06/2001. Trim: 1999 Lotus Esprit V8, Owned 3 years.
Pros: very, very fast faster than most lamborghinis faster than all hondas faster than all production cars under 50k looks great runs great it's fast it's not a guzzler, gas prices are on the rise, if you need something fast, then this is the car for you
Cons: the comfort rating could be higher, but overall, i like to sit in it for long periods of time
Overall review: this is the coolest car i've ever driven. i have a 1999 lotus esprit with a v8 twin turbo. 0-60 in 4.4 is amazing for the price of this car. of course, there are faster cars, but it's tough to find them for under the 80k that this costed. the top speed is only 178, but in America, there aren't many places you need to drive that fast anyway. i WOULD NOT reccomend this car if you live in germany, and a few other countries. however, if you DO have a limited amount of money to spend on a car, this IS the car for you, reguardless of who you are and what you drive now. it's absolutley wonderful. note: people who give this car less than a 5 do not own one, they are simply advocating THEIR cars only... notice one reviewers spelling of "except" :)
