The Lotus Esprit was produced between 1976 and 2004 and based on a concept car penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Italdesign. Peter Stevens redesigned the 1987 Lotus Esprit model, incorporating rounder shapes in the angular body. The new design also offered more space inside for the passengers, and a larger trunk. A new patented process called the VARI—Vacuum Assisted Resin Injection—was used to build the new body, which was a big step forward from the hand-made fabrication. A Type 910 engine powered the Lotus Esprit, generating 215 hp and enabling a 0-to-60 mph acceleration between 5.4 and 5.1 seconds, which was 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster than the previous model.
