At the first press day of the Paris Motor Show, Lotus has unveiled six new models, one of which is the reincarnation of one of its most famous car: the Esprit.

The new Esprit will start at £120,000, and two models will be available; the Esprit and the Esprit R.

Power comes from a Lexus 5.0 litre V8 engine, and they will have either 550 bhp or 620 bhp, and a 0-60 time of 3.5 or 3.2 seconds, depending on the model choice.

The car weighs in at 1495 kg, giving it a CO2 output of just 250 g/km.

Both will have a paddle-shift gearbox and a bespoke interior, although no details have been confirmed as yet.
