When Lotus sold this car new in 1990, the Esprit SE made 284 HP from a turbocharged 2.1L Inline-4, an incredibly stout number for the time, thanks to forged internals and hot cams from the factory. ATS Racing of Denton, Texas went to town, and this stock-bottom-end Lotus now makes 450 HP at the crank, 380 HP at the wheels. At under 3,000 Lbs stock, the Esprit goes from fast to missile thanks to ATS's upgrades.
