    oh, nevermind, there they are!
     
  2. Re: This or an NSX

    I'd take the Esprit anyday.
    Looks better, performs better and what would you like to say to your mates down at the pub.......I've got a Honda or I've got a Lotus........hmmmmmmm tough one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Id go with the NSX. They are much better
     
  4. Re: This or an NSX

    Are you joking? The Esprit will outhandle the NSX, and it will accelerate faster, and its cheaper, and its more exotic.

    I think that just about covers it.<!-- Signature -->

  6. Re: This or an NSX

    I can see how would like to go with a NSX, but the thing is, An NSX is not a V-8, it is a V-6, and it does not and will neve have 350 horespower. Problem solved. Go with the Lotus. It is cheaper and faster. Also nicer in my opinion
     
  7. Re: This or an NSX

    I prefer the Lotus , it has an history , the NSX is more anonymous and hasn't really improve since its release.

    What a w@nker!

    It's ugly?........oh yeah and the NSX has the great looks of a DB7 eh?
    The Lotus looks nice and has a classic shape.....the NSX is good but it has a dull design and come on.......I'd take the Lotus brand of the Honda anyday!
    Whoever said about the handling thing.......5th is bloody good considering Lotus has changed so much and it's old old car still gets good handling reviews.
    At the Lotus track in Hethel the Esprit can hit 144mph where the tiny Elise(120bhp) manages only to hit 122mph and still the Elise only finishes 2.2 secs behind the Esprit.
    That's how much Lotus have changed.......they make the best handling car in the world(Elise) and so they don't need much power hence the Esprit is now a dated concept in Lotus' history!<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: This or an NSX

    As much as I like the NSX, the quickest the new generation NSX has gone is 0-60 in 4.5 secs, and a top speed of 175 mph. The Esprit is clocked at 0-60 in 4.1 secs, and a top speed of 180 mph, not to mention it is cheaper. The NSX is nice, but the Esprit is better.
     
  12. Re: This or an NSX

    I hate to abandon Japanese exotics, but I'd pick the Lotus Esprit, and hopefully its twin turbocharged. This is much faster than the NSX, and not to mention a LOT cheaper. The average person who basically doesn't know crap about cars would think the Esprit is a lot faster and a lot more expensive. They're right about one thing, its a lot faster than the NSX. Basically everyone knows what an Acura is, so they see this car and they would instantly make that judgement. Why shell out an extra 27 grand for an NSX when its not as fast? Sure, its more of an exotic, in a way, but then would you rather have speed than something that costs a lot of money? Look at the Porsche 911 GT2 forum; the topic with 160+ posts, try to read every single page and you'll see what I'm talking about.<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: This or an NSX

    i have the same dilemma as soupedupsupra, and i will still have to go with the lotus. they acura is built very well, and is a very fast car, but with this car you are also buying a name. not to mention that the two cars perform relatively the same and the lotus costs almost $10k less
     
  14. Re: This or an NSX

    I would agree with soupedupsupra and 300zxdriver, the NSX is so little for the money, i mean think about it a 350hp v8 for around $70,000 or a little sixer with only 280 horsepower, (not to mention no turbo) for $80,000 and up. THe acura is a great car dont get me wrong but at least price it at least $30,000.
     
  15. Re: This or an NSX

    And for those idiots who think a nsx is a far greater car, UP YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  16. Re: This or an NSX

    THIS, by far the NSX was supposed to compete with ferrari's but crapped out<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: This or an NSX

    I'd take the Esprit. No question. The thing that bothers me though is that Lotus has been designing some really weird, if not UGLY, cars recently. The Esprit is by far the best they've made. It's a really beautiful and exotic machine. There's NO way the Acura can beat it!
     
  18. Re: This or an NSX

    I'd take the Lotus not only over the NSX, but over almost any other car. I think this thing could put out 900 bhp with a few modifications. What do you guys/gals think?
     
  19. Re: This or an NSX

    i think id buy it and leave it bone stock.

    its an exotic and lotus make argueably the best handling cars in the world.
     
  20. Re: This or an NSX

    The NSX is awesome but I like the Espirit a lot more <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
     
  21. Re: This or an NSX

    Just say no.

    NSX was meant to beat ferrari but got slapped

  22. Re: This or an NSX

    Sorry to burst your bubble people! But the Lotus Esprit V8 and the Acura NSX costs roughly the same. The a full spec NSX costs $91,618.30 practically the same with the Esprit's cost which is $91,000. But of course, we all know the Esprit is better and more exotic!<!-- Signature -->
