Made from 1976 to 2004, the Lotus Esprit was manufacturing the three models in 1980: the Series 2, the Essex Turbo Esprit and the Series 3. All variants used a common set of molds and the model was based on a concept from Italdesign. A 2-liter, 4-cylinder unit with an output of 160 hp powered the original Lotus Esprit model. The S2.2 model was produced as a stopgap version from 1980, before the arrival of the S3. An enlarged engine with a capacity of 2.2 liters powered the S2.2, as its name suggests. The Essex Turbo Esprit boasted a new turbocharged, dry-sump engine with an increased output of 210 hp. The new Turbo Esprit and S3 models were the next upgrades, featuring a revised chassis using the configuration of the Essex model as a base.
