My brother In law just got a lotus esprit wow that thing was pretty fast (Its the 4 cylinder turbo version) from a dig It's just about worthless but from a roll Its almost unstoppable. He's beaten a few ricers and a SVT cobra in it He has alot of problems with it though It overheats and had some gearbox issues he had to get a new water pump for it which If you can believe it cost 700$. Good god that thing is small though I have trouble getting in the front seat and getting my leg in under the steering wheel (I'm 5'9). But anyway he took off this little tip that the guy before put on so It sounds alot better now. I'll have to get some pics of it. Yeah so any body live in arizona who want to race??????? :D

Yeah the parts are murder Its in pretty good shape now he's gonna get an Intercooler setup for it It should make good power afterwards, I asked him about dropping a fuel injected Big Block in it he said it's not made for that kind of engine swap (I was think How I could make it that way though :D ) and since its a mid engine It would not be fun putting it in ;).
