People say these cars can't be modified. My mate Karl who owns a Lotus Esprit GT3 has gone to town on his. I've lost track on the list of mods but here goes:
NOS +100BHP extra plus purge kits in ariel and bonnet vents
19" bespoke alloys
DVD player
Playstation
one off bodykit
Wheel arch extensions
one rear spoiler
glass bonnet window to show off NOS bottle
lowered suspension
door handles removed
front and side indicators removed
ice blue paint with pearlesant laquer
2002 rear light conversion
Ferarri style rear valance
F1 style carbon fibre wing mirrors
the usual K&N etc etc

He been approached by a few magazines. I think he's gone with a 4 pager on Redline. I think he's in this xmas edition. Also he's had it on Max power stand when it was pretty much standard. He's already down for next year's stand.

This Esprit is a 2.0 GT3 standard is 240BHP. With the NOS and other mods, I reckon 350BHP.
My S4s comes as standard 300BHP. Iam hoping to get a chip soon that will take it upto 330BHP and that's without NOS.
Big downside is that the gearboxes are only good for 350BHP and even then second gear goes. This is why the 3.5L V8 twin turbo has only 350BHP. It had to be detuned so not to rip the gearbox apart. Easily get 450BHP on a standard engine with the V8.
