Artist's Description

Realistic acrylic painting of the Lotus Esprit, painted by the Dutch fine artist Paul Meijering – the Original painting is 90 × 120 cm and for sale

The Lotus Esprit is a sports car that was built by Lotus Cars at their Hethel factory in the United Kingdom between 1976 and 2004. It was among the first of designer Giorgetto Giugiaro’s polygonal “folded paper” designs. Giugiaro wanted to call the car “Kiwi”, but the Lotus tradition of having all car model names start with the letter “E” won out, and the name became Esprit.

As part of a five-car announcement at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, Lotus unveiled a completely redesigned Esprit, with production slated to start in late 2013 and sales in the spring of 2014.
Work on a new Esprit had started as early as 2006 under Carr. The car was unveiled during Donato Coco’s tenure as design chief and was to have featured a futuristic front-end with LED front daytime running lights and a centre-mounted dual exhaust system in the rear.52 Power was to come from a 5.0 litre V8 engine delivering up to 620 PS (456.0 kW; 611.5 hp) through a 7 speed dual-clutch transaxle. A KERS system was to be optional. The interior was to have a futuristic but minimal design which included a digital instrument cluster, a sport steering wheel and carbon fibre trim scattered throughout the cabin. The design exhibited had a length of 4,550 mm (179.1 in), a width of 1,950 mm (76.8 in) and a height of 1,250 mm (49.2 in). Gross weight was stated to be around 1,495 kg (3,295.9 lb).
On 29 September 2014 Lotus cancelled the project and announced that they would not make the Esprit. Lotus had decided to continue making lightweight cars instead of heavyweight cars.
