Giorgetto Giugiaro's Series 1 Lotus Esprit is the ultimate expression of polygonal folded paper design and looks fantastic just sitting still. Even in the dilapidated state we see here, it screams supercar without the over-the-top wings/fan/ducts of something like a Countach -- and lucky for Esprit lovers, prices are similarly low key.
Sitting behind the driver's seat you will find a Lotus type 907 4-banger mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle. The little Lotus engine is a 2.0 liter DOHC 16-valve all alloy engine that pushes out something around 144 horsepower.
