Following the very successful Motor Show and overwhelming response, Lotus Cars were under pressure to deliver the first car promised in the future line up. Just a couple of weeks after the Paris reveal Miroslav was already on board as a senior exterior designer. He and Paul Murray (lead exterior designer) formed a very strong team delivering the production version of Lotus Esprit while Mihai Panaitescu on the other hand side was designing the interior. The whole team was managed by Chief Designer Russell Carr and Design Director Donato Coco. With exterior body made of carbon fibre, high revving V8 racing engine, incredible design and the famous Lotus driving experience – it was going to a magnificent machine! Due to financial difficulties unfortunately the Lotus Esprit programme had to be stopped.
