Babel fish translation:
Successor fuer Lotus ESPRIT


Concept central engine of sports car on Geneva salon 2006


The approximately 13000 kilograms light central engine sports car is to warden of 450 HP strong V8 aggregate propelled. It is not still decided whether Lotus develops the engine or as with the Elise to a Toyota'Triebwerk falls back. As an opponent of the still nameless two-seater Lotus Ferrari constituted 360 Modena, Porsche 911 and Lamborghini Gallardo. For the 1.9 meters broad Lotus better Platzverhaltnisse and a hohere body rigidity is to offer about 120000 euro. Lotus hopes for 1500 sales jahrlich. AuBerdem in planning: middle series fur 80000 euro

Wow. It has a small resemblance to the Espirt and looks a bit like the Lambos.

I can't read German but it looks like it's around 450 horse power and would cost around $97K USD ($80 Euros).

My german is pretty poor too, but I think the esprit will be 120k euros, they are talking about another car under development for 80k euros. I think they are saying its still an open question as to wether lotus or toyota will make the engine. Any better translations?

Now we can all start obsessing about the new esprit.
I love that I'm not the only car nut in the world!
