After 15 years it’s time to let the Esprit move on so someone else can enjoy years of great motoring, or just hold as an investment as they become rarer and prices have dramatically risen in the UK for good cars. This is the same model as used by James Bond in “For Your Eyes Only”.

Delivered December 1982 to UK dealer (Taplow), before spending time in Hong Kong and then imported to Western Australia in mid 2000.

Original (matching numbers) engine rebuilt 2008 with new genuine upgraded Lotus crankshaft, forged Mahle pistons and new liners, together with all new valves, rebuilt turbo and new stainless steel petrol tanks. Full leather interior, air conditioned and comes with extensive record of receipts and photographic record of work completed available. Fully adjustable rear suspension that includes AVO rear shocks. Galvanized chassis & fibreglass body eliminates any future concerns about rust this car has no rusted underbody parts as experienced on many UK cars. Car used as regular Sunday driver and paint has minor scratches and blemishes and would benefit at some stage from a refresh to take back to former glorious deep metallic red (known as Lotus -Jupiter Red).
