The structure of Esperado was formated from the mixture of the Aston Martin V series, specially V8 and V12 and the model Rapide.
Acceleration is average due to a small (likely 4 or 6-cylinder) engine being matched to a front-wheel drivetrain, but pulling a small curb weight. What is truly disappointing about this car, though, is the significant lack of speed that would be expected from the light frame. Handling is average, but the car exhibits understeer. Brakes tend on the weak side, but are effective due to the light chassis and inability to reach very high speeds. Also due to its light weight, every time it changes gear the car moves up and down violently.
