“Adding power makes you faster on the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere.” Colin Chapman
In the 1970s, everyone, children and adults dreamed of owning and being able to drive a Lotus Esprit, a car that could reach 150 mph and accelerate to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds. How did you achieve this?
Thanks to its four-cylinder engine with a displacement of just over 2 liters. It is also affordable compared to the big ones in Italy and Germany. However, when it came to reliability it did leave something to be desired.
And finally, it played an important role in the James Bond film “The Spy Who Loved Me” as one of the first amphibious cars. Add to this a note, it was only the version built by Hethel for the film. The standard models could only go by asphalt.
What are you waiting for? Run and get yours!
