    Looks too much like Ferrari's traditional rear lights.
     
  2. They look wierd
     
  3. Re: What do you think about the new rear lights?

    I wouldn't neccessarily say they look like Ferrari's. I would say that many sportscars have the dual-round tail light look. Ever heard of a Corvette, Diablo, Rx-7. Are those all copies of Ferrari to? I realize what youre saying about the blinker shit being in the middle of the tail light. Look at the Nissan Skyline for instance. Even though the tail lights are different sizes. Saying that this car is a copy of Ferrari's Lights is like saying that the Diablo copied the Corvette. No matter what car has the twin tail lights it is a desirable design.

    true, its not a matter of who copied who, but that the design works well <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> and suits the car IMO
     
  6. Re: What do you think about the new rear lights?

    I like the older back lights
     
  7. Re: What do you think about the new rear lights?

    Same. Somehow they just suit its arse better.
     
  8. Re: What do you think about the new rear lights?

    I like these, they are pretty cool, slightly better looking than the old ones.
     
  9. Re:

    I think the new lights look good. they give a new look to the car. the old lights look to square and 80's
     
  10. Re: What do you think about the new rear lights?

    i agree
     
  11. Re: What do you think about the new rear lights?

    the old back lights look like those off an old ford escort (UK). i think the new ones suit it well, it looks more mordern imo with them.
     
  12. Re: Re:

    That's Because They are. Toyota Had those lights on one of their 80's cars[euro or japanese]. I think toyota didn't want to produce them anymore, seeing as they date back to the 1980's.
     
  13. Re: What do you think about the new rear lights?

    stick with tradition lotus. theyve had about the same cluster for decades with only minor updates. hell! it sparked a new tail light standard. notice how after the esprit came out, other cars copied them? even now(the latter may be wrong, but from my recolection it was the first witht hat cluster).
     
  14. Goddamn I used to love Lotus Esprit mainly for its tail lights and now that they are gone I'm pretty pissed off and because of this I'm not interested in acquiring a 2002 esprit V8, even if she�s cheaper, faster and more reliable and even if she has had gold parts in it� 1997 vintage rules over, and so she will do forever! And yes I love all those cars with this 1980 tail lights style, I fall in love when I see a good looking car�s butt with these delicious rectangular lights.
    Thus said, one of my favorite car around is the 85/86 Toyota Trueno, seen the similarities with old style Esprit? Same butt, same beauty!
