The Lotus Esprit was manufactured from 1976 to 2004 in many different variants. The Lotus Esprit Series 1 model was offered in 1977 and was distinguishable by its FIAT X1/9 taillights, shovel-style front air dam and Wolfrace alloy wheels. Inside the cabin was a one-piece instrument cluster with green little Veglia gauges. Giorgetto Giugiaro at Italdesign penned the Esprit with straight lines, sharp angles, and geometrical shapes. A 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine powered the car, offering an output of 160 hp for the European trim and 140 hp for the US trim. The unit was matted to the same five-speed manual gearbox than previously fitted on the Maserati Merak. The Lotus Esprit was a fun and efficient sports car with a top speed of 138 mph as claimed by Lotus, and a 0-to-60 mph acceleration under 7 seconds.
