Lotus produced only 718 first-generation Esprit, from 1976 to 1978, making the car extremely rare. The Esprit was equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that in the European version produced 160 hp while in the American 140 hp.
The engine was combined with a 5-speed manual transmission borrowed from the Maserati Merak and Citroen SM. It had rear-wheel drive, a weight of just 1,000 kilos and it was able to reach 96 km/h from a standstill in 6.8 seconds, with its top speed being 222 km/h.
