    997 GT3 or GT3RS ftw
    maybe a spyker even, how much do they cost?

    Good ideal although not equaly exotic. Price about the same. Spyker too expensive!

    A GTR3RS not exotic? I don't know about you, but the chances on seeing a Gallardo are bigger than a GTR3RS (at least for NED)

    Rare is different to exotic! A GT3RS has the same shape to a regular 997 which according to my taste it's not as exotic as a lambo or a ferrari.

    You just scored a point...

    Other alternative: Aston Martin DB9 perhaps, or a Vanquish S...

    I just love Astons. However I beleive that both suggestions are more expensive with poorer performance figures; I would be happy though to pay a little extra for a James Bond DBS

    With all the news about the new Esprit why not go with the old dog, the Lotus Esprit V8?
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    Let's be reasonable! The only lotus worth talking for is the Exige S. And still not possible to compare to a Gallardo.

    Erm why? Why is the Esprit not worth in your opinion?

    The esprit is a quite old car (2002-2003) with a poor transmission and gearbox system. Additionally the particular lotus lacks reliability mainly due to its turbo-chargers. Finally I believe its looks are a bit surpassed.

    Let's wait for the new Esprit. Then we can state our opinions.

    Until then the R8 is a cheap derivative.

    The Corvette - Viper is another one (though aiming at a different target group)

    The F430 of course from Ferrari
    Minimising losses can maximise net gains

    The R8 is a Gallardo substitute not a Gallardo alternative
    The Viper is nice but I will agree with the different target group argument.
    The F430, yes that's an alternative... however it is more expensive for no particular reason... and some may argue less reliable!

    And the Lamborghini is a Volkswagen, so what?

    Absolutely irrelevant point! You cannot persuade me that the esprit is a similar car to the Gallardo. Sorry mate!
