Lotus Esprit V8
They produced the Esprit from the early ‘70s, all the way up to the early 2000s. It was always a fantastic supercar even though it had a smaller engine than its competitors. But the last and best version was the V8 that produced 350 HP.
And with its lightweight body, the Esprit could outrun many of its competitors while still retaining that classic wedge look. This was a bona fide exotic car, but the current prices are relatively affordable. However, you should snap this piece of classic British engineering up right now.
