Lotus Esprit Videos

I think we need some Lotus Tech-Porn here!

If it shows an interesting / innovating mod or technical aspect of the car, post it here.

I'll start with an Active Suspension clip.

Love the video, did this ever make it into the esprit or was it just a prototype?

^^ The Lotus Active Suspension was used on the Lotus F1 cars towards the end of the '80s.

I really liked the scene around 5:00 where the guy is bouncing on the nose of the Esprit, and the back end was bouncing too! Keeping everything on the level.

Not so much tech,

But this one (which came out a few years ago) features Richard Hammond


Lots of eye-candy!

I'm sure Atwell will comment on the wing! It would be interesting to confirm the source of the drive shafts mentioned.

Love the guy in the Sierra sedan,shaped like a brick, raining, no helmet, no roll bar, no S*^#s given

Here's a webisode of My Car Story with Lou Constabile on my S4s that was filmed on Sunday. Not super exciting, but it was fun to be interviewed and show off the car.
