More details

Widely regarded as the best of the normally-aspirated, Georgette Giugiaro styles Lotus Esprits, the S3 was introduced on April 22nd 1981. Visually updated with colour coded front spoiler, side skirts, air scoops etc. This model also had a new steering wheel, seats and instruments. Derived from the Essex Turbo Esprit, its galvanised backbone chassis featured all-round independent suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Light and agile in the best Lotus tradition the S3 was powered by a mid mounted 2174cc DOHC four-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual transmission.

The updated HC model was introduced early 1987 and boasted 172 bhp, 163 lbft thanks to an improved cooling system. The newcomer was capable of 0-60 in 6.5 seconds and 138 mph top speed. Further enhancements were a larger capacity battery, full engine / transmission under trays and adjustable rake seats. The short lived HC was superseded by the X180 Esprit in October 1987 making this model a prized collectors piece.
