The Lotus Esprit was offered in two versions in 1982: the Lotus Esprit S3 and the Lotus Turbo Esprit. Produced from 1981 to 1987, the Lotus Esprit S3 boasted the 2.2-liter engine previously mounted on the S2.2 variant. A new interior featured reduced noise, new seats, optional leather, a new steering wheel and an updated dashboard with the gauges from the Turbo model. Design-wise, the car had a new front spoiler and Turbo bumpers. Made between 1981 and 1986, the Lotus Turbo Esprit offered increased horsepower of 210, as well as additional torque. The car was very responsive, thanks to a new and improved clutch. A new backbone chassis was also introduced for the Turbo Esprit, larger in the front and zinc galvanized to avoid rust damage.
