I happened to stumble on htis on youtube, figured I would share it.
Wel, maybe so. But arent looks what attract us to just about any sports or exotic, initially? We know the performance will be there but first impressions are what stoke the fire. I remember the first time I saw an Esprit on the road. Something happened - I was a little kid at the time but I HAD to have one. It was rolling art: The low roof, the width, the crazy windshield rake, and how it looked like a space ship next to all the mundane cars around it. :drool: Its similar in some repsects to a female - when you first notice them its very likely because shes pretty. She catches your eye.Hmm, I am not sure I agree with some of the comments made by the Esprit owner they had in the video. "The reason most people buy a Lotus Esprit for the way it looks, the sharp angular design, the very Ferrari like looks, the italian styling. Not really for the performance. The performance is just a bonus." It sounds like this is something you might tell your insurance agent. "No, I'm not buying it because of the performance. I buying it because of the good looks." Also sounds like that old line about buying Playboy for the articles.
Later he goes on to tell about how all the G-car owners feel the Stevens restyle has ruined things and how all the Stevens owners feel the G-cars are too dated and old fashioned.
