Lotus Esprit

Regarded by many as Britain’s supercar. The original Lotus Esprit, with angular styling by Giugiaro, was a sensation when launched in 1976. A decade later it looked dated and a re-design was masterminded by Peter Stevens, who later designed the McLaren F1, MG TF and Subaru Imprezza. The new car, although heavier than its predecessor, was more aerodynamic. A more rigid body along with improvements to suspension gave improved handling. In turbocharged form the Esprit had supercar 150mph plus performance.
