ANR system for Esprits?

Has anybody ever heard of using an ANR system (either with separate speakers, or utilizing the car's stereo speakers) for Esprits?

I understand that Lotus experimented with such as system for the Esprits at one time. Didn't work well enough, I guess, to become a standard feature, or option.

But now the technology (e.g. airplane headsets) seems to have advanced. The Acura TSX has such a system.

I wonder if it might be possible to retrofit such a system for the Esprits?

Sure, just buy a pair of these:



Bose QuietComfort Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones | Cool Material





Me, I LIKE the sound of the Lotus....

It appears that the Lotus ANR has been taken to a new level in the Evora 414E:
