Launched in 1976, the Lotus Esprit was a two-seat sports car based on a concept from Italdesign. The Esprit model was produced until 2004, which makes it one of the sports cars produced for the longest time in history. From 1978 to 1981, the series 2 model was manufactured. The car was fitted with the same 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine as its predecessor, with a power output of 160 hp for the European trim and 140 hp for the US trim. The Series 2 featured new 14-inch, Speedline alloy wheels, taillights from the Rover SD1 and a new dashboard with individual gauges. A special edition of the Lotus Esprit Series 2 was made to celebrate Lotus’ victory in the 1978 Formula One World Championship. The car was named the JPS: John Player Special.
