Equipped with a turbocharged 32-valve flat-plane crankshaft V8, they start, idle and sound very much like a ’60’s era musclecar with a hot cam.

1988 Lotus Esprit | Hagerty – Classic Car Price Guide

1988 Lotus Esprit – Classic Car Price Guide History of the 1988-1993 Lotus Esprit As the 1980s progressed, the Guigaro-penned lines of the Esprit Turbo were beginning to look dated, prompting Lotus to embark upon a masterful in-house restyling by Peter Stevens at the end of 1987. This new Stevens Esprit Turbo was available in the U.S. starting with the 1988 model year. Mechanically, the car was identical to the previous year, with the same Type 910 2.2-liter turbocharged I-4 making 215 hp in U.S. trim, as well as a subtly revised four-wheel independent suspension. For 1989, the Citroen-sourced transaxle that had been utilized since the Esprit’s introduction in 1976 was replaced by ...

Lotus Esprit Submarine by AUTOart

Lotus Esprit Submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me by AUTOart As part of their now sadly discontinued 007 line of models (as of the time of writing that is, Sept 2004) AUTOart released a submarine version of the white Series 1 Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me starring Roger Moore as James Bond. Released in 1977, this in the authors opinion is one of the best ever Bond films, and 007s white Lotus Esprit modified by Q-Branch is one of the highlights of the movie (along with Ringo Starr’s fine looking wife Barbara Bach, as Agent XXX!). In the movie, the Lotus has the ability to convert from sportscar to submarine on the fly, which helps Bond escape from a pursuing machine-gun equipped ...

Lotus Esprit V8 – Review – V8 – maybe just too much?

Lotus Esprit V8 Advantages: It is a really cool Lotus Disadvantages: It#39;s still just a Lotus My 4th (and last) Esprit cost me far and away the most and with hindsight gave me the least pleasure. May be I should have run it on the track. May be the Ј60k price tag led me to expect too much. Mat be it could never live up to its fantastic looks and jaw-dropping performance. The 4-pot Turbo Esprit that I had prior to the V8 served well for 3 years and gave me few hassles after an initial problem with the clutch. When I p-ex#39;d it for the V8 I had high hopes. Within 1000 miles I started having problems. The cat#39;s were vibrated so much by the engine that they fell apart and blocked ...

The Lotus Esprit Fact File – Model Information

Esprit V8 – Road Track #1 Question 10 enthusiasts about the most important quality in a high-performance sports car, and you will, of course, get 20 different answers. A high-revving multivalve engine. Turbocharged or supercharged. With the engine in the middle. Precise steering. Big brakes. Big tires. Sleek. Balanced. Fun. And a low price would be nice. The Lotus twin-turbocharged Esprit will give you all of the above except the low price. Elementary physics suggest that more power and less weight will make a car faster, all else like gears, tires and aerodynamics being equal. At less than four feet high, an Esprit is acceptably slick, the 285/35ZR-18s on the back have substantial ...

Guest contributor: Lauri Ahtiainen on the 1979 Lotus Esprit S2 Some cars can be defined by numbers#8212; you only need a piece of paper or a plain Excel spreadsheet. Those pure facts reveal everything the car has to offer, and that#8217;s all there is. To gain some perspective you have to experience those facts, whether we#8217;re talking about the quarter mile time or something as prosaic as the size of the trunk. Then we have cars that really don#8217;t shine on paper. The 1979 Lotus Esprit S2 seen here weighs just under a thousand kilos (2,200 lbs) and is powered by a two-liter inline-four. Breathing through two double carburetors mounted on a DOHC-head, it produces all of 160 bhp. ...

Lotus Esprit – Classic Cars Wiki

Lotus Esprit The Lotus Esprit was a sports car built by Lotus from 1976 to 2004. The Silver Italdesign concept that eventually became the Esprit was unveiled at the Turin motor show in 1972, and was a development of a stretched Lotus Europa chassis. It is held to be among the first of designer Giorgetto Giugiaro’s folded paper designs. Originally, the name Kiwi was proposed, but in keeping with the E naming format of Lotus tradition, the name was changed to Esprit. Historically it was able to match or better most of its contemporary rivals’ performance in many areas, which included the Ferrari 308, 328, F355, and 360 Modena, as well as many Porsche sports cars in a production ...

The original Lotus Esprit: A wedge perfected

The original Lotus Esprit: A wedge perfected Everyone keeps remarking about how Porsche 911s have looked the same for the past 50 years, but no one ever remarks how the Lotus Esprit has been guilty of a similar fate (sans the new one). Well okay, the Esprit wasn’t nearly as resilient or successful of a sports car as the 911 is, but that’s not going to stop me from admiring the beauty of an original Esprit restored to perfection. Before I go on, I’d like to say I spotted this particular car at Houston’s August cars and coffee meet (or coffee and cars technically for our town’s iteration). After attending numerous CnCs, I’ve come to the realization there’s ...
