Two versions of the Lotus Esprit were offered in 1982: the Lotus Esprit S3 and the Lotus Turbo Esprit. The Lotus Esprit S3 was produced from 1981 to 1987 and boasted the 2.2-liter engine previously mounted on the S2.2 variant. The car featured a new interior with reduced noise, new seats, optional leather, a new steering wheel and an updated dashboard with the gauges from the Turbo model. Outside, the car had a new front spoiler and Turbo bumpers. The Lotus Turbo Esprit was made between 1981 and 1986 and offered increased horsepower of 210, as well as additional torque. A new and improved clutch was fitted, giving the car a very quick and smooth responsiveness. The Turbo Esprit also featured a new backbone chassis that was larger in the front and zinc galvanized.
