The first model of Lotus Esprit was produced in 1976 and the Esprit model was manufactured until 2004 in different variants. In 1983, the Lotus Esprit offered was the S3 or Series 3 model. The Lotus Esprit S3 was based on an Italdesign concept by Giugiaro and featured simple and elegant lines, as well as great aerodynamics. The 2.2-liter engine previously mounted on the S2.2 model powered the Series 3 Esprit, while the chassis and running gear came from the Lotus Essex Turbo Esprit of 1980. Many revisions were made to the interior of the 1983 Lotus Esprit, such as the improvement of the soundproofing, new seats and a better dashboard. The Turbo Esprit model was also available in 1983 and boasted a more powerful engine with 210 hp and additional torque. The body kit developed for the Essex cars was used on the Turbo Essex.
