Popular two-seater sports car of the mid 1970s to 2000s, the Lotus Esprit was made in many variants. In 1986, the models on the catalog were the Esprit Series 3—or S3—and the Turbo Esprit. The design of the 1986 Lotus Esprit was very edgy, with long straight lines and sharp angles. Inside, more room was available and the cabin gained in comfort over the previous models, introducing new seats, steering wheel and dashboard. The Esprit was fitted with a 4-cylinder, 2.2-liter Lotus engine. A final iteration of the Giugiaro-designed cars called the Esprit HC came out in April 1986, featuring increased engine compression. The power generated by the naturally aspirated engine went up to 172 hp for the Esprit HC and 215 hp for the Turbo Esprit HC.
