The Lotus Esprit began life as a 1972 concept car created by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Lotus. Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus, decided to put the Esprit into production 3 years later in 1975.

The Lotus Esprit featured a steel backbone chassis, fully independent suspension, a fiberglass body and mid-mounted engine.

As the years went by the Lotus Esprit went through many changes including both engine upgrades and styling enhancements. By 1993, when the Lotus Esprit Turbo SE appeared the nose was restyled, sideskirts were added, there was a rear wing and the interior had been improved.

The Lotus Esprit Turbo SE was powered by a 349 horsepower twin turbocharged V8 developed by Lotus, this was mated to a six speed gearbox. A far cry from the original Esprit's 160 horsepower, 2.0 litre 4 cylinder and 5 speed transmission.
