  2. i highly doubt you have a ferrari and i think you dont know shit about cars because lutus's are nice cars your just an idiot.
     
  3. Oh yeah a ford focus sux and you could get hella bytches with this pimp ride.your just a fukken idiot when it comes to cars.learn more you damn retard.
     
  4. You know, I really have to say that there is a good deal of intelligent people posting messages on these forums and I am not talking about the one's who say "V8 TT and only 350 HP? This car S-U-X". I am not a braniac about cars nor do I claim to be one, but whenever I argue a point about a car I don't merely look at HP and Lotus doesn't suck. It's got some of the best handling in the world for a great price and IMO its got great looks as well. Plus this car out-accelerates all currently produced Ferraris and those are the 550, 456M and the 360.
     
  5. Lotus last link with Colin Chapman

    This car is still worthy to be called a super car. If you don't like the styling thats cool. Everyone has there own taste. The rear lights are not a copy of ferrari. They are part of the corperate image started by the elise.

     
  6. Ya cant judge this car by a Ferrari
    When you Race it against a Ferrari and win then you can tell me which one is faster
    Stats dont always mean the car is faster
    lotus have been good manufacturers
    and this car has stylings of a diablo to me
    but ya cant judge em by a bunch of numbers an letters
    race em together and then ya can judge it
    And No this car dont suck

    <b>Well guys, as for the Elise, guess what..this is the engine they stick into it for some pro-racing circuits =P
    Reason why HP is so low for this engine is cuz look @ it's displacement and size!! This engine is only a 3.5L!!

    But over all, this car does not suck. If you've ever driven a Lotus before you'll know. These cars stick like glue on the road in some hairy situations where even a 911T with AWD will #$%# up.
    The ligth weight, right amount of power and suspensions kicks ass for cornering. And yes, this car can and will kill a 360 or 355 even though they have a larger V8.

    The Lotus engines also sound extremely sweet and smooth compared to the Ferrari =)
    This car is not really a drag strip car, straight lines it'll get killed, but through some corners in, and you'll need something that handles like a WRX or GT car to keep up =)

    I disagree with your dragstip comment. An Esprit V8 will outrun an F355 and a Corvette off the line when launched correctly.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. You don't have a Ferrari. This car is just as nice and a lot cheaper. Shut up.

    Look at it, its good looking, pretty fast, really nice, handles well, its pretty rare but not outragously priced, what more do you want from a car?
     
  9. hey ninja moby take the shit out of your eyes and read. the guy was talking about putting an 8 cylinder in an elise, not an esprit. Im sure he was well aware that an esprit had an 8 cylinder, unless for some reason he is one of those people who know absolutly nuthin about cars and only think they do.

    Moron. Ferrari is indeed #1 but do not insult the Esprit. I've been working around Ferraris and Lotuses for two years and I've seen my share of them. The Esprit, while no match for the elagance of a Ferrari, is by far one of the finest road-going sports cars in the world. It may not perform as well but they're just as rare and a good investment for buyers. How can you compare this wonderful machine to a lousy Ford Focus anyway? Get some respect man. You'll find your life will be a whole lot more enjoyable that way. You also say this is a poor man's sports car? It isn't. Mustangs, Camaros, and most Corvettes are part of the poor man's domain. This one is a true exotic. I bet you don't own a real Ferrari either; maybe one made by Matchbox. "To all those out there who want some good advice, don't listen to this guy. He obviously has no idea what he's talking about."
     
  11. Umm the much more I can say is they have a Twin Turbo model with alot more horsepower then this so this car dont suck. They built it to have the amount of HP it has. If they wanted more they woulded added more its not to hard.

    Plus the 550 you like is a V12 versus this small V8.
     
  12. How can you say this car sucks? Just because the power is lower than the ferrari does not mean it stinks. This car has the best power to weight ratio in the supercar territory. 187 is not a bad top speed for a car that is only 70k! Your beloved 360 modena goes 190 and is priced near 200k. Esprits have long owned ferrari's ass on the track[excluding the f40 and f50 those cars RULE!] The lateral G's on the lotus are stellar[0.95] and this car will only improve that. As for the supposed "OLD" styling, please. The 2002 car's look breathes life into a rather old[but magnificent] body. No, the rear end is not a copy of the ferrari line but moves toward the elise's rear end[another great car too!] One clue is the exposed amber turn signal's. The front end and roofline look FINE. The car is selling well[best selling supercar] and It would look awkward with exposed front headlights, so SEVERE body reworking would be required. This car will most likely not be replaced, as the M250 will be it's own model line. Expect to see a new body for this car in 2006-7.

    Why are automakers not using pop-up headlights anymore?<!-- Signature -->

    You are an idiot. The Lotus Esprit is the epitome of sports car. Lightweight, even weight distribution, mid-engined, amply powered. At 71,000 dollars, this car is not cheap. I can tell by the way you talk, you've never been in a true sports car. You are a blasphemer. Some audacity you have to post such ignorant forum. I hereby banish you. Any future forum you post will be disregarded.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. if you ask me... wich one is better??.. well bang fro bucks.. the lotus is better..ferrari`s are nice and look cuter but I can say ive seen more ferraris than Ive ever seen lotus,,.. anyways azn gurls are tight pouzzy ..yes its tre thats why they are famous and then comes the part about being exotic... I do recommend also for those looking for chicks to try out aussie`s ... wow they are so purty <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    now lets argue wich kinda girl is better :p and leave the lotus alone..<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Barchetta: Right on man, Spoken like a true Ferrari lover... One who drives a Yugo.


    Esprit!!
     
  16. Before I even say anything, I'm gonna come right out and say it. I am very biased against Ferrari. Enzo Ferrari was a pompous bastard and Ferruccio Lamborghini got his revenge... Good. This is how good. The top 3 supercar makers (that influence other car makers) in the world are:

    1. Lamborghini
    2. Ferrari
    3. Porsche

    IN THAT ORDER (I've read this people I'm not making it up)

    I dislike Porsche and I dislike Ferrari even more. Having said that the top 3 supercars of the 20th century are:

    1. Lamborghini Diablo
    2. Mclaren F1
    3. Dodge Viper

    This is according to DuPont Registry magazine so shut up if your thinking about saying "Nuh uh thats not how it is"

    Which by the way is a total diss on Ferrari having a "cheap" american sportscar beat them out of the number 3 position (hahaha I think they got 6th place or something with the F50)

    OK back to the subject, Lotus is a way better car maker than Ferrari. Ferrari is for pompous arrogant bitches. My Favorite cars are Lamborghini, Lotus, and Bentley and I would so take a Lotus Esprit over a 550 Maranello, or at least take the Maranello and sell it to buy a Lotus Esprit AND other cars. Legendary Handling baby. The 550 Maranello is Ferraris best looking car in my opinion though.

     
  17. lol 0-60 in 4.4 is faster then a 360 and almost as fast as a 575 that costs more then twice the price.
    the Esprit could easily outhandle a Ferrari on some turns in a track.
    a 911 is slower and gets ouruned anywhere by the esprit. The Viper could runu with it, but then it comes down to deisgn, build quality etc..
    the Esprit is a very capable car, that could easily outrun more expensive exotic cars.
     
  18. HOMO, dis guy, yo what're u sayin. u dum or u on crack man. LISTEN homo, i got myself a lotus. ican already tell dat ur ass got some piece of shit honda or something. cause when u got money, like me, to spend on cars like these, u got a big enough brain to realize that no car worth close to 100 grand has shit preformans, and this car will rape most ferraris. LISTEN HOMO, don't ever ever disrespect the lotus's power as a chick magnet. homo, dis car gets EEENNNOOOUUUGGGGHHH, pussy. TAKE some advice, and shut ur hole, along wtih all the other poor white ppl on this site going, ohh what car u want a zo6 or a mercielago. DUM POOR SHITS, DON'T SHIT A CAR THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN AFFORD.
    PEACE.
     
  19. Good call.


    P.S. Hope you don't mind, I copied that picture and am going to award it as well, if you'd rather I didn't just PM me.
     
  20. Re:

    Idiot this car is awesome shut the hell up!
     
  21. I would pick this Lotus over the 550 Barchetta, purely on handling preferences...plus I don't see many Espirits on the road, and alot of Ferraris, so it's good to be different...don't get me wrong, I love Ferraris very much, but if I had to pick affordability over style, I would have to side with the Lotus..
