Paris Motor Show: New Lotus Esprit

At the first press day of the Paris Motor Show, Lotus has unveiled six new models, one of which is the reincarnation of one of its most famous car: the Esprit.

The new Esprit will start at £120,000, and two models will be available; the Esprit and the Esprit R.

Power comes from a Lexus 5.0 litre V8 engine, and they will have either 550 bhp or 620 bhp, and a 0-60 time of 3.5 or 3.2 seconds, depending on the model choice.

The car weighs in at 1495 kg, giving it a CO2 output of just 250 g/km.

Both will have a paddle-shift gearbox and a bespoke interior, although no details have been confirmed as yet.
