Lotus Esprit Turbo, 1985. Fabulous example with just 36,000 documented miles from new! (1985)





Lotus Esprit Turbo, 1985.  Fabulous example with just 36,000 documented miles from new!    Supplied by the world’s longest serving Lotus Main dealers Bell & Colvill Ltd. on 3rd May, 1995 and still bearing it’s original registration number.   Confirmed by the Lotus archives as being the original colour of Essex Blue metallic and trimmed in full champagne leather interior.   There were a number of upgrades to the 1985 specification cars including the option of a factory “targa” sunroof and this has this superb feature of allowing the glass roof to be lifted off and stowed away in the rear luggage compartment.  This is a very correct original example with the factory fitted BBS alloys and other features. A superbly balanced car to drive with exhilarating performance in every department.   Essex Blue metallic has been the most popular selling colour over the years in our experience and harks back to the Formula 1 sponsorship days in the early Eighties when the F1 cars were in the Team Essex colours.  I remember Elio De Angelis driving one at Brands Hatch about 35 years ago.   Look no further if you want one to keep and enjoy for a very long time to come.  Superbly documented service history along with old MOT certificates confirming the low mileage.  Fully serviced and MOT’d.
