But flexible in a good way, not in the rubbery cowl-shake sense. The forthcoming Esprit will sit on a platform called VVA (Variably Vindictive Assassins is my best guess, assuming it's named after some indecisive ninja clan), which allows wheelbase and axle lengths to be changed to produce different chassis sizes and specific handling characteristics. An engine and transmission have not yet been decided upon, but we most likely won't be seeing a version of the company's famed V8, at least not in the Esprit. The sports car is set to drop in 2006.
