The Lotus Esprit from team KRB Trading, another Gatebil regular and monster from Viking lands.
While the Audi was a true garage build, this car has a different origin. It started life as a Group-C C2 class car from Tiga, which was crashed, then bought and shipped to Sweden, where a tuner/maniac rebuild it and draped it in Lotus Esprit-like bodywork, because why not. With a peaky Nascar V8, it ran in some national championships and switched hands a few times before KRB Trading got its hands on it.
The engine is now a 4.2 liter Audi V8 with two large Comp turbos affixed, making roughly 1000 NM and 800 hp with a wide powerband (especially compared to their Audi S1). You can easily chase the 787B, 962, and C9 in this car …until the fuel runs out.
This mod is the same deal as the Audi, I tried to replicate the car as best as I could, which was made a lot easier when I established contact with the team.
It comes with seven skins, three real-life replicas of the cars at various stages (basically from both Speedhunters articles again plus how it looks during this 2018 season), and 4 additional liveries, among it a replica of the BPR GT1 Esprit (with restrictor you can drive this car among the RSS GT1 field… a lot of restrictors..)
