The 2003 Lotus Esprit plays hard to get. It’s exclusive, available only to an elite crowd. No wonder, given its lightning speed and racecar-like handling. The Esprit is a two door Coupe equipped with a 350 horsepower 3.5-liter turbo-charged V8 that generates 295 lbs-ft of torque mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Slated to end its production run this year, the Esprit remains virtually unchanged. Designed with steep acceleration in mind, the Esprit offers sparse interior room, but comes adequately equipped with driver and passenger-side airbags and ABS brakes.
