Esprit Engine Swaps


Recommended Posts

First off I've owned Lamborghini Miuras and Countachs before the market went crazy and I've also owned as Esprit. I've been intrigued by the engine swap LotusRoss did with the BMW and Mercedes V12. Trying to get details so as to pursue my own transplant I found a Road&Track article which mentioned Nav Mechanical...has anybody every dealt with them? Are they still in business?

Above all it's the chassis which gives any decent Lotus it's cred, so please, if you must swap engine do so with something light as well as powerful. You know, like the 900 series 4-banger native to the car.

if I would go for a swap in my esprit (s3)  I would love to put a bmw M power straight 6 in her (on TBFI) a friend owns a M1 so maybe I am a bit biased lol,   the v12 is overkill, I like that audi v8 hilly did as well or that Renegate LS3 swap. good luck with any build, if you happen to make a build blog I will happily follow it as I like engine swap's (my europa has an nissan 1.8 turbo swap)
