JPS Esprit

Lotus and the John Player Special livery go together like peaches and cream, be it a classic Formula One car or a brand new Evora.
In memory of Ayrton Senna's death, German outfit Cam-Shaft Premium Wrapping have created this - a V8 Esprit, wrapped in the livery of Senna's JPS Lotus 97T, the racer in which he took his first GP win. It's not just an aesthetic spruce-up either; the V8 has been massaged to release a muscular 492bhp, enabling it to hit the magic 62mph in just 4.3s, going on to a top whack of 175mph.
Beneath Senna's signature you can see the legend 'obrigado por tudo', Portuguese for 'thank you for everything'. Nice touch.
