    In April 1986, the final incarnation of the iconic ′folded paper′ designed Georgiou Giugiaro Esprit′s were announced. Fine-tuned following Ayrton Senna′s pursuit for F1 success, the new car boasted raised engine compression, a much more driver focused cockpit, and decreased turbo lag. The updates brought the Lotus marque in line with the best exotics of the time, including the Ferrari 328 and gave journalists and enthusiasts an exciting comparison to war over. With its new Higher Compression ratio, smaller exhaust turbine and housing helping the turbo to spool faster, the 1987 Turbo Esprit was able to reach 0-100 in just 5.3 seconds. Every aspect of this race bred machine was built to go fast, the pedal positioning allowed for heel and toe throttle blipping, communication through the steering rack is uninhibited, and the chassis clings to the road like a koala in a hurricane. Arguably the most exciting road car Lotus built, the updates allowed this machine to sneak ahead of the Ferrari 328 and Porsche 944 turbo on any given day. Your adrenaline most definitely flows as the whole machine comes alive but the cars resolute design makes an expert out of you in no time. This particular

Mechanically the car was identical to the previous year and utilised the same 2.2-litre turbocharged engine as well as a revised four-wheel independent suspension.

    The Lotus Esprit is a sports car that was built by Lotus in the United Kingdom between 1976 and 2004, as well as a future release in 2014. The silver Italdesign concept that eventually became the Esprit was unveiled at the Turin Motor Show in 1972 as a concept car, and was a development of a stretched Lotus Europa chassis. It was among the first of designer Giorgetto Giugiaro's polygonal "folded paper" designs. Originally, the name Kiwi was proposed, but in keeping with the Lotus tradition of having all car model names start with the letter "E", the name became Esprit. By the close of 1980, Lotus was effectively building three different models of Esprit, with distinct chassis designs and body moulds - the Domestic (i.e. UK) S2.2, the Export S2.2, and the dry-sump Turbo Esprit. Introduced in April 1981, the Turbo Esprit and S3 (Series 3) Esprits marked a necessary consolidation: both new models had a common chassis, inheriting much of the configuration of the Essex cars, whilst body production was based on a single common set of moulds. In 1987, a new version of the Esprit was unveiled, incorporating rounder styling cues given by designer Peter Stevens (who later designed the McLare
