For me I'd say the later Stevens redesigned Esprits and the original Lotus Elite Type 14.

Some are such classic designs.



:shift:


*Curious that Lotus felt so obligated to re-cycle names* :huh:

...it's really difficult for me to say one is better-looking than another when i feel distinctly different appeal toward different cars (including a great many on this list), so i'm voting by the initial take-my-breath-away factor rather than the slower process of acclimation, appreciation, and ultimately adulation...

...because i so lust for europas now, but gosh did they strike me as freakishly ugly on first sight...

Where's the choice for Elise S1 too? Although the Exige S1 is merely the "motorsports Elise"

This is a gut-driven poll compadre!

Which Lotus car stirs your loins the most? Like when you spot an attractive women across a crowded room... ;)

Amazingly that Europa escaped my poll list. :p

Did suffer through two of them many moons back. The early ones REALLY did not have any windows you could roll down!


:eek:

Personally I prefer the looks of the Rover-propelled Elise!

Never truly warmed to the Boy Racer headlights of the Federale version.



:D

Edited the poll so I could add the S1 Exige to voted for :) - added the S2 version for Dragon ;)

The evidence is compelling :)

But RoadDad has a better list although the poll doesn't support so many options. :shift:

Guessing if you ever had a hot chick like that around your car you would have stroked out immediately.


:p


Dad knows his stuff. :up:

Are we only talking about street cars, or any Lotus?

I think a few of the F1’s are quite nice looking.
