Lotus Esprit V8 Turbo

The Lotus Esprit is one of the longest-lived supercars in history, rivaling the Lamborghini Countach for its lifetime in production. Built to compete with the likes of the Ferrari 355, the Esprit V8 is in many ways the end of an era for one of the most storied car builders in the world.

The Esprit V8 traces its looks directly back to the original car, with nearly three decades of refinement giving the car better aerodynamics and a massive increase in power. The exceptionally compact and light weight 3.5L V8 wears twin turbochargers, and is the last engine Lotus produced in-house. It also happens to be one of the best engines anyone ever produced, offering a flat-plane crank growl unlike virtually anything else.
