May be buying a Lotus Esprit V8
 
I have always loved the Esprit. I plan on purchasing a V8 model in the near future. Thoughts?

I love 'em too, was looking at Loti for fun on Ebay earlier tonight...check it out, a couple of really nice looking V8's. Have fun with the upkeep.

the esprits are nice and look sweet in real life, but I would buy me a new elise instead. They have a toyota motor so at least some parts would be easy to find (what am I saying, toyota motors don't break ;f ).

Either one is a definate head turner.

honestly, Lotuses (Lotusi?) is the kind of car I'd love for a friend or relative to own, so i'd have access to it, but wouldnt have to deal with any "issues".

That being said, if you love it, you'll love it regardless!

The Esprit is definitely a cool car to own and drive if you can find parts and services for it.

The 2 Elise's I saw at the autocross event this weekend were KILLING people. They are like 190hp go-carts.

That's thier rep in europe.

Only problem is they don't have all that much in the straights. Nothing a turbo couldn't help. ;f
