Lotus Esprit spy shots?

Anyone have any Lotus Esprit spy shots. My buddy has an Esprit and said the spy shots of the new Esprit where on the internet. I can't find them.

Neither of them are spy shots. They're both computer generated.

The Golden one, in the first pic posted by Il Duce seems to be coolest to me. It would do justice the the Esprit name.
Allthough, looking at the current design drirection lotus has taken, it seems like the 2nd and 3rd pic are closest to any sort of finished product.

As Exige said though, they are both computer generated and probably very far from anything likely to come out of Lotus.

The 2nd and 3rd pics look Lamborghini Gallardish, especially in the 3rd from the rear view.

My guess is that I'm stating the obvious, and someone has taken a Gallardo and made their next generation Espirit out of it.

I've seen spy photos of the car on Road and Track once...it was based on a Gallardo.(everything on the exterior was the same...except the minor things...lights, grille etc.)

I really like the front of the blue one, the gold one seems a bit too tapered?

I'm by spy shots you mean artists impressions, based on a Gallardo. Because why the hell would Lotus base a car on the Gallardo?!

How can a spy shot be official?

The second and third pics are very clearly a Gallardo in drag, the third one still has half of an exhaust pipe and the top of the Gallardo taillights visible!
