Profile

The Esprit Sport 300 was introduced at the 1992 Birmingham Motor Show as a stripped out lighter version of the Esprit Turbo. Power was up to over 300bhp and coupled with a weight saving of over 80lbs, the Sport 300 was capable of the dash to 60mph in an exceptional 4.6sec.

Based on Lotus's IMSA racing X180R, the 300 featured stiffer suspension, a strengthened chassis and provision for a roll cage for those owners who longed for track action. The Sport 300 was joined in 1993 by the Esprit S4 and shortly after the S4S. The range continued until the long overdue 1996 arrival of the Esprit V8.
