Which used Lotus Esprit coupe should I buy?
Three models were available and specialist dealers who know the Esprit well are the best place to look for them.
The standard V8 was launched in 1996, powered by a 3.5-litre 349bhp turbocharged engine linked to a five-speed manual gearbox. In 1998, there was an improved model with a revised interior and some mechanical changes. There followed another upgrade in 2002, when it got new wheels and rear light clusters.
