    Three new models have been released by Lotus in the Paris Motor Show: The Espirit, the Elan and the Elise.

    I was anticipating the release of the Espirit in the Paris Motor Show, but I had no clue that the Elan and the next-gen Elise would come as well. The Espirit and the Elan look quite similar; very good, but quite similar. The Elise is the one that really catches my eye. OK, the glass arrangement looks a little weird from the back, but, it's like it is with the Jaguar XJ, if you order it in black, it starts to make sense. Very good moves from Lotus, I reckon.

    Eh, I'm not really a fan of the new design. One of the main things I dislike is how similar the styling on all three of them is. I liked the fact that the old ones all had distinct looks and functionality, but that just seems to be gone with these cars.

    Yeah, but you have to admit the Elise looks slightly different to the other two.

    The design is so original, it's amazing.



    No, we haven't seen anything like this before.

    Point taken, Zez. The Espirit's design is a carbon copy of the Lamborghini Gallardo (didn't realise that till just now).

    You gotta see the Elise, though, that's originality defined.

    I cannot remember which one, but I'm pretty sure I had a Hot Wheels car at one point which looked sorta like that.

    It was the Gallardo. The Lotus Espirit isn't going to be released until 2013, so there's definitely no Hot Wheels models for those ones.

    No, I mean there was an original hot wheels car that I could have swore looked very similar to this Elise when I was 7-8. It's probably just a false memory though.

    Well, it was most probably a concept or something. Maybe a Toyota MR-2 or something (not that I would ever confuse the Elise with an MR2, but they do share a resemblance).
