I am involved in organising an event called Motor Madness which will be held at Rockingham on Sunday 17th June (Fathers Day) and I was wondering if your members would be interesting in attending with their cars?

Your members would get free track time throughout the day, access to all VIP areas, refreshments and lunch. With an option of taking public around the track to raise money for our charities if they wish. SSAFA, Help for Heroes and Children's cancer. Best Regards

This rare Lotus Esprit GT1 was saved by fate
from www.goodwood.com...
Lotus’s 1990s foray into GT racing had mixed success. One on hand, the Esprit GT1 was on the pace with the likes of the McLaren F1 GTR, gaining pole positions and leading races in the BPR Global GT Endurance Series. On the other hand, reliability issues blighted the campaign and meant that the car never delivered the results promised by its pace...Read More Here

Mr Esprit History lesson
Brian educates us all...
Check out our old interview with Mr Esprit in the link below.

14 FEBRUARY !293
The latest evolution of this classic mid-engine performance car. The Lotus Esprit S4, features a stunning. Lithe and distinctive exterior, a refreshing new look to the interior, major advances in its suspension dynamics, and a range of other detail improvements. For the first time in the model’s history. Power steering is introduced, and will be standard fitment. The Esprit S4 is available immediately in the UK, and will be launched in European markets at the Geneva Show in March.

The Lotus Esprit S4 brings new levels of refinement to the appearance and road manners of the model. And further extends the potential customer base by building on the customer-led improvements of the car it supersedes. Many of the changes are subtle but dramatically enhance the character of the car. For instance, delicate, styling work, unusual in that material has mostly been removed rather than added, has redefined the purity, elegance and individuality of the shape. The addition of power steering bas permitted subtle changes to the front suspension geometry, giving more neutral handling balance under all conditions, and higher levels of grip. Both straight-line stability and turn·in response have also improved.

Other detail but significant improvements include a one·key security and alarm system with immobilizer, new colour-keyed and flush·mounted exterior door handles, new steering column and associated switchgear, one-touch electric windows with safety
sensing. a new high-torque gearbox with short-throw precision gearchange, and new unique I7” road wheels (respectively 2” and 1" larger front and rear than the superseded wheel design).

The retail price or the new 264bhp Esprit S4, fined as standard with power steering & air conditioning, ABS, leather trim, and anti·tbeft alarm, is £46,995.00

Cool cars
the top 10 coolest cars in the world revealed
Our cool cars poll has revealed the top 10 coolest cars in the world according to you. And here they are… We asked, you voted, and these are the results: it's the 10 coolest cars ever! But what does it mean for a car to be cool? Well, as you might imagine, it's not an exact science, and everybody's opinion is different. The cool cars here are the ones that took pride of place as posters on bedroom walls, or these days can be found gracing the backgrounds or wallpapers on computer or smartphone screens. They have an ageless quality that puts them down as instant classics, but there's something more to them that helps their cool cause. It can be down to looks, the technology on board, or even what the car is capable of, there's no fixed definition of what makes a car cool.

There could even be a celebrity connection - the cool factor of somebody famous is likely to rub off on whatever they drive, just look at film star Steve McQueen. If it wasn't for the car chase in the movie Bullitt, would the Ford Mustang be as revered as it is? After all, it's not like its arch-rival, the Chevrolet Camaro, is held in quite as high a regard.

Understatement can also give a car the cool factor. While other cars look big and brash with a real 'look at me' attitude, the cool car is more reserved, and doesn't need to shout about its presence. Whether it's classically elegant lines or simply a look that doesn't make a song and dance about a car's potential performance, this is another way to collect cool points.

A motorsport connection is also a good way of earning cool status. While plenty of cars get a sporty makeover in the quest for sales, the cool cars are the ones that have the racing or rallying pedigree that justify their existence. A limited production run that's designed to meet a homologation requirement only ramps up the cool factor further, while cars that are little more than thinly disguised racing cars with number plates also deliver a cool factor that few others can match. So, without further ado, here are the cars that made our top 10, as voted for by users of autoexpress.co.uk. Click the links below or at the top left of this page to find out more about the world’s coolest cars.

The Lotus Esprit: Get one while you can still afford one...
As the race to collect the last good Esprit's hots up, the guys at Petrolicious are on the trail.
by www.supercarsecrets.com.au
As this Article suggests, the secret is well and truly out about Lotus Esprit's, and so attention is now turning to obtaining the last great examples. Now that the key people are re-discovering that Lotus's are, and always were one of few cars that offer such an incredible driving experience, the race has really hotted up to obtain the last good ones. We went out actively collecting many examples of these great cars over the past 4 years, and since then there have been more and more article's appearing worldwide discussing the many great virtues of owning a Lotus, and more especially Esprit's.

Yes it is true that many purists love the early Lotus Elan, Elan Plus 2S's, and Europa Twin-Cam's, and that many also love the go-kart speed and handling of a Lotus 7.

Yes, it is also true that many also love the later Exige's and Evora's, and all of thees great cars have their place. In reality, it really does'nt matter which one you choose, as they are all fantastic to drive with razor sharp steering turn-in, mid-corner grip, and outrageous exit speed. All these cars have amazing brakes, and all are ascending in value rapidly,....................and so, what more could one ever ask for !. It just so happens that attention is now on the Esprit, from early ones through to the sensational true Supercar, the V8 Twin Turbo.

How to build a Lotus Esprit "submarine" raft in 5 days
How to build the LOTUS ESPRIT "SUBMARINE" from the JAMES BOND film "The Spy Who Loved Me" - and use it as a raft to in the PADDLE ROUND THE PIER event in Brighton, England. More info, videos and photos at http://www.flotus.co.uk and http://www.paddleroundthepier.com/ WHAT DID WE BUILD IT FROM? - The raft was a wooden frame with white "mylar" plastic stretched over it. - The front and rear bumpers were black, plastic guttering pipes. - The "propellers" at the back were black, plastic plant pots with children's "windmills" inside them. The "body" was strapped to a pallet board and we used 4 large, inflatable rings as buoyancy. it worked surprisingly well!

Lotus Esprit V8 Review...
Test Drive, and Comparison to Lamborghini Diablo
I did a full write up on this car and how I bought it here... I bought a Lotus Esprit V8 twin turbo earlier this year. I was not sure exactly what to expect with this car, because they are so rare. A lot of people complain about them, and some people love them. After driving the car for the first time I fell in love with the car. It is beautiful, fast, fun to drive, and extremely unique. The car is Azure blue, has the 3.5 liter Lotus V8 with twin turbos, and a Renault 5 speed manual transmission. The car was modified before I bought it with an after market exhaust and reflashed computer. It is faster than a stock V8 Esprit and sounds great, even if it is a bit loud. My sister thought I was crazy for buying this car, even though it was only $38,000. After she saw it in person and drove it, she loved it. She even drove it to a car show this summer instead of her R8 V10 plus. I also have a Lamborghini DIablo that I compare this car too. They are completely different cars, but both extremely fun and unique. The Diablo is Monterey blue and a 1999 Alpine Edition. You can see the video I did on the Diablo here.

Lotus Esprit Turbo - First Impressions
Published on 16 Sep 2016
Bought a Lotus Esprit Turbo - the 4th car in the 12 Cars series. One of the coolest cars of the 70's-80's, that I dreamed of as a boy, I finally own it!

Running a Lotus Esprit Turbo S3

Had this Lotus Turbo Esprit S3 for around 6 months now. All the vehicles in the 12 cars series were supposed to be short term, can I now get rid of the Lotus to make way for another car??

My cars have expanded in number so I need to go back down to two and I need to get a new car for the 12 Cars Series.. so two of my current steeds have to go. Which will it be? I love the Lotus Esprit, adore the Porsche 964 and cherish the Lancia Integrale. What a dilemma!!

That plate should be on an Esprit
Should be a 1989 SE obviously
Spotted this BMW in central London at the begining of January and should only think of one thing! So I thought I'd share.

In the Esprit world, we normally call an Esprit by its year and model. I'm looking for 92 SE for my number plate! I'm just wondering if it's real. Not your standard UK number plate, but still. I like it!
