Because it is so much better looking then (almost) everything else made today!

With a sensible engine and without touch screens etc I could actually consider it to be able to get to work if the LEZ becomes even more strict.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Well if they thought it was so great, what have they done with the original and why didn’t they go ahead and productionize it. There were far more exciting concept cars coming out of Italy on an almost weekly basis in the early 1970s. Every manufacturer was commissioning them. This one’s very tame and uninspiring in comparison.

Maybe some beancounter canceled it, maybe they wanted to play it safe with the oil crisis, who knows? Just because it is tame and simple makes it stand out from today's market full of complex designs that all look alike. 😉

Though I doubt it will actually reach production, and if it does I fear it will be more along the R5 posted a few days ago.

Citroen 2CV Bijou, I had never heard of it, apparently somewhat of a cross between a 2CV and an Elite, fibreglass body designed by Peter Kirwan-Taylor on a Citroen chassis.

This one sold for £9500 + fees.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Ah yes, the Sherp. 😎 Very cool, but not something I'd wanna drive. I don't think there is much driving experience, just point it somewhere and let it crawl through.

A bit of Lotus representation at yesterday's Bo'ness Car Show, almost swamped by a sea of modified hot-hatches unfortunately.

Mine was relegated to the public car park as the bodyshop is still trying to locate all the parts needed for the repair to its face, :( .
