Lotus preparing new Esprit model | Rpmgo.com

Lotus fans are in for a big treat it seems, as rumors have been leaked about the company preparing a new Esprit model, which will enter development soon and play a major role in the brand’s image.

While the end result might have a new name, sources say that it is called the Esprit internally, and that it will sit higher than the current Exige, Elise, Europa and Evora models, being the “essential brand image builder” and “high status purchase”.

Other details are scarce though, but the source has claimed that the English brand is targeting a power-to-weight ratio of around 275-325 HP per ton, which is close to other performance models like the Audi R8 V10. This is certainly some great news for Lotus fans, as more models from the company means business is still going strong.
