The Lotus Esprit is a mid-engined sports cars from the British sports car manufacturer Lotus, based in Hethel Norfolk. The Esprit V8 corresponds to the final design of the series 4 and has now been equipped with a fully developed Lotus 3.5 liter V8 bi-turbo engine. There was the V8 in both the SE and GT variants, the GT was simpler equipped with respect to weight reduction. Most obvious is the lack of the GT rear spoiler and a simpler instrument panel. The result was a respectable 354 HP at just 1230 kg kerb weight.
The model was initially used as a demonstration vehicle for a Lotus dealer in Nuremberg. Since 2008 it has been with its current owner, which was first in 2009 registered in his name. To date, the GT V8 is part of a collection of vehicles in southern Germany.
