Chrome Lotus Esprit Turbo with rebuilt engine and new leather interior (1988)




This chrome wrapped Esprit has done just 6,500 miles since a complete engine rebuild, including Nikasil liners, costing £6000 by one of the most reputable engineers in the Lotus community, brand new full leather interior costing £3000 and restored alloy wheels. The car is a real head-turner and star at car shows and has even featured in TLF and on CBBC. The chrome wrap (which is also protecting the paintwork) is removable if desired to reveal the original white finish. Standard equipment includes E/W, E/M, A/C and has a Kenwood Bluetooth DAB head unit with 4 new speakers and a Thatcham approved immobiliser/alarm. I have details of every service (conducted by a Lotus specialist) and work carried out on it since I bought it in 2008, including comprehensive photographic record of the engine rebuild, and the FSH prior to that. No canvassers please.
