Lotus Esprit

Produced from 1977 – 2004 the Lotus Esprit is a Sports car made in the UK based on a steel frame with Fiberglass body panels and powered by a 2 liter 160Hp and later a 2.2 Liter NA, fuel injected and Turbo. In 1996 Lotus produced a V8 powered Esprit using an Aluminum block twin turbocharged that produced roughly 350 HP in a 3,000 lbs car.

For a car model with a 27-year life span it has 6 distinctive design changes each one improving on the previous and keeping with the Power to weight theme of making it more powerful and lighter you’ll have one fast car. The 3.5 Liter Turbo V8 had very impressive 0-60 MH time of only 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 175 MPH.
