Re: [DML] Re: WANTED: Angle Drive



I categorically disagree with you on that entire statement. About the 
only thing that was better on the Epsirt was performance and handling. 
And I would agree they probably DID deliberately cripple the DeLorean on 
handling.

I have a good friend who has been running an S2 Esprit daily for much of 
the last year (until he spanked it last month). The interior is a horrid 
place to be compared to a DeLorean. It's noisy, harsh, rattly and 
uncomfortable. So much of the switchgear, door handles etc are 
recognisable from other (usually Leyland) cars - at least JZD had the 
sense to disguise the samll number he used! The engine might have put a 
lot of power out for its displacement (for the time) but needed 
rebuilding every year, and the word "quality" does come to mind when 
someone who is used to a DeLorean chassis looks at an early Esprit one, 
but usually following the words "not what I'd call..." GKN did the DMC12 
proud, whereas Lotus continued to build their own, and it shows.
