Incredibly desirable 2002 Lotus Esprit at recent show at Circuit of the Americas. This beauty is an under-appreciated supercar. Mid engine, aluminium 3.5 liter V8, weighs under 3000 lbs. Before the recent engine mods, the stock Esprit would reach 60 in 4.5 seconds, the 1/4 mile in 12.8 seconds, and 175 mph. The more I looked at it, the more I wanted it!
This little Fiat was not imported to the US, but was based on the front drive Punto, powered by a 1747cc DOHC engine but only weighs about 2300 lbs., this one built after 2000. Should be fun. Here are details. Found it a few blocks from the Circus Maximus. I’ll post the best cars and motorcycles I find on my vacation – it’s a very different scene here than home: in Rome there are few old cars and none, so far I’ve seen in two weeks, that are modified.
