To achieve these figures, Lotus made changes to the cylinder head, and fitted an updated ECM and Garret turbocharger.
This added up to serious on road performance, with 0-60mph dispatched in a mere 4. 6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 168 mph – impressive numbers in anyone's language.
Equally impressive was the handling, with a 0. 91g figure achieved on the skidpan.
The S4s was distinguished by the larger rear wing from the Sport 300, new OZ five-spoke alloy rims, Brembo brakes, and also had the distinction of being the end of the line for the four-cylinder Esprit.
The car offered today I a 1996 S4S.
