I have been acquiring parts for my project for a bit and thought it was time to start a project thread on it.

This is the plan........

Take one 1981 Lotus Esprit S3

Pull out the 2.2litre 4 pot Lotus engine/Citroen gearbox and chuck in an Audi 4.2 V8 and six speed transaxle in (there)
Set aside an hour or more and read on

Motorgeek forums - 4.2 V8 ABZ conversion of Lotus Esprit

An Esprit has no relation whatsoever to an Elise.

An Elise w/ an Audi V8 is :crazy: .
An Esprit w/ an Audi V8 is :sleep: .

I sat in a V8 TT Esprit at work once....ohmygawd

The guy was pretty cool, started talking to him about it while I should have been washing it for him, and when it came time to move it, my cockblock of a boss said I couldn't. He just wanted to drive it, then revved it ridiculously in the tunnel.


I wish I had time/money/experience to do something like that :(
