History of the 1976-1986 Lotus Esprit:
By the early 1970s, both the Elan and the Europa had been on the market for more than five years and both had been sold in kit form. A new model was needed to change Lotus’ image. Enter the 1976 Lotus Esprit. The new Lotus wore sharp wedge styling courtesy of Giorgetto Giugiaro and looked just like the stunning 1972 concept car. Engineers mounted the 2. 0-liter, 4-cylinder engine mid-ship, and coupled it to a 5-speed transmission. The Giugiaro Esprit continued until a redesigned model was introduced in 1987. The early cars, however, remain one of the purest expressions of the 1970s wedge theme. And while the Lotus Esprit can certainly be classified as an exotic, parts and maintenance are nowhere near Ferrari levels. As such, this car remains a popular vintage option.
