Lotus has fired their CEO and has cancelled the proposed 2014 Esprit. That needn't affect your own esprit de corps because for today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe we have a Union Jack-wearing '88. Its price however may jack you up.
As cute as yesterday's Canuck Civic was there was nothing attractive about its ten grand price, at least accoring to its 84% Crack Pipe loss. Perhaps some of the animus for the less than stellar ninth generation Civic rubbed off on this car. Antipathy is not something that you might consider when it comes to today's candidate, and in fact the only similarity between it and yesterday's Honda is that the Japanese coupe was yellow and black, and this Lotus is yellow and Union Jack.
