Actually the turbo esprit is a really nice engine. It has had years of 
breeding, and is very smooth and responsive. I had an '89, and it was a 
really fun car to drive. Beleive it or not, it was reliable as well.
Disclaimer: They really need help on turbo implementation. 0-50 in 5 
seconds, 0-100 in not much more! Moral, real slug before spool up, but 
thats what makes it nice in city traffic.
Doubt I would buy another one.
