Why are Lotuses so sweet?????

Discussion in '2000 Lotus M250 Concept' started by Joe_Canada, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. They don't even have all that much power - especially the Elise - but man, are they cool.

    They handle hella well and they are really light so they have the most important stat in their favor, power to weight ratio. This is what really maters for going fast. If you have 400hp in a 4000 pound car it probably will get its ass kicked by a 2000 pund car with 250.<!-- Signature -->

    I love lotuses, however, i likes their previous design better, now they are getting into the futuristic type crap. But still its a great car.

    why ?
    because they're british ?

    "futuristic type crap"... this is good.
    But you have to admit the changes they did to the Esprit were necessary to keep the Lotus Esprit one of the most beautiful supercar in the world! As for me, I'm glad that they didn't build this concept. It just does not fit together with the image of Lotus.
    (By the way: nothing is more difficult than to change the image of a British sportscar)

    Sorry the M250 is back on and will be available at the beginning of 2004.

    "Futuristic type crap". They do this in there own products to gain engineering work from other manufacturers.
