Esprit Saves it's driver
Swedish Esprit Wrecked
This was some of the extracted text from this Finish website which is taken from a thread on LEF.

"Swedish man's survival was miracle when he wrecked his Lotus Esprit turbo yesterday. His leg was broken and he was stuck in vehicle. Despite the accident he was calling many of his friends. He made five phone calls before rescue was in the scene. He said: I have crashed my car but I'm ok and I was going to the gym. He was not in shock and was a hardy man. He seemed to be ok but after a while he felt pain in his leg. Everything happened so fast! Suddenly the car was sliding sideways, then hit into the rock and followed by a sudden stop."

New Esprit in 2010 or 2011?
Lotus Evora pushes the 'New' Esprit back
Lots in the news about Lotus' first new car since the Elise, the Evora. This has obviously pushed the new Esprit back and rumours of 2010 or even 2011 have been banded about by the usual motoring source that have proved to be so unrealiable. We're taking no dates seriously until officially announced by Lotus. But it does look like we've still got a long wait for a replacement for our beloved Esprit.

Esprit Respray
Our Esprit get a new skin (June 08)
LEW's Esprits was resprayed at Surface & Design in Blackpool over June 2008. We had a full respray including the carbon fibre sunroof and our sport 350 wing. We decided to keep it black and after some thought decide to keep it a Lotus colour. We a few blacks to chose from, we finally went for the same Black as the limited Sport 350 came in. With only 2 or 3 of these being done, we've joined an exclusive club of Black Lotus Esprits.

  

Our bodywork was in pretty poor condition after 16 years of sweat and tears on the British roads. Plenty of stone chips, scratches and some peeling, gave an unfetching look close-up. We also needed a new bumper after the damage that was done. Surface & Design have done a remarkable job on the Esprit. We been over it with a fine tooth combe and it's pretty much perfect. No overspray, glass finish and the scratches, dents and stonechips are nowhere to be seen. We are very impressed with the finish. More details on our respray soon, with a full guide coming.
