2008 card

From the back of the 2008 card:

Born: 1976
Birthplace: Hethel, Norfolk, England
Designer: Lotus Cars
Specialty: The name is Esprit...Lotus Esprit. Lightweight and super fast with a fiberglass body and a V8 engine, it's no secret why this British beauty is the perfect spy car - originally made famous in a classic James Bond film. The Esprit goes from double zero to 60 in under 5 seconds. Beat that!
