The 1995 Esprit S4S combined the best parts of the comfortable S4 and the rapid Sport 300 to produce a very attractive package. The car was similar in appearance to the S4 but with the split rim OZ alloys and spoiler from the Sport 300. Power fell between the two others at 285bhp with a short overboost facility to 300bhp.
The S4S was widely acclaimed for it's performance and especially it's handling. Steering was positive and direct giving the S4S exceptional cornering ability. The S4S was in production for just 2 years before the 1996 launch of the awesome Esprit V8.
