Buying or Selling a Lotus Esprit?


Lotus Esprit
Lotus Esprit

Built by British manufacturer Lotus between 1976 and 2004, the sporty Esprit model was designed by the talented Giorgetto Giugiaro at Italdesign and first introduced as a concept car at the Turin Motor Show in 1972. The design of the Lotus Esprit was based on the chassis of the Lotus Europa and was very edgy with geometrical shapes and the iconic square pop-up lights. The first series was the S1, replaced in 1978 by a revised and improved S2 variant, which main design cues were a new integrated front spoiler and new ducts behind the rear quarter window. The Essex Turbo Esprit was introduced in 1980 as a turbocharged variant. In 1980, a third generation came out with distinct chassis design and body mold. The Esprit was redesigned by Peter Stevens in 1987, followed by Julian Thomson in 1993. A new Esprit was introduced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show to perpetuate the line.
