Profile

The stunning Esprit Sport 350 was hailed as the fastest, and the best, Esprit of them all.

80kg in weight was shaved from the standard V8 thanks to lightweight racing seats, carbon fibre bodywork and ultra light Magnesium alloy wheels. This saving helped the Sport 350 become the first Esprit to crack the 10sec 0-100mph barrier.

To cope with this extra performance the Sport 350 received even wider rear tyres plus a stiffer chassis for improved roadholding. Stopping power was finally up to the performance thanks to the fitment of powerful racing brakes from Brembo and steering feel, always a strong Esprit trait, was better than ever.
