Lotus Esprit Turbo 1986. 29,000 miles from new! Stunning JPS black with gold decals. Beautiful sand coloured full leather interior and factory glass “targa” sunroof. Immaculate original BBS alloys. Built in September 1985 and registered in March 1986 as confirmed by the Lotus Archivist in the letter and Certificate of Provenance from the factory. Good history file which traces the very low mileage. A new clutch has been fitted and new exhaust manifold gaskets replaced. This example drives impeccably with plenty of turbo boost and smooth power of 230+bhp as can be seen from the dyno print-out in 2016. A stunning example in beautiful condition throughout and one that drives as well as it would have done thirty years ago. Having been driving and selling Esprits for well over thirty years, I can vouch for how well this one performs. Fantastic looking Giugiaro penned shape that gets better with age. Giugiaro is celebrating 50 years of Italdesign next year so a good time to buy one. We visited the Italdesign factory earlier this year and have been invited down for the celebrations next year and Esprit owners in particular are welcome to join in. The Esprit comes fully serviced and MOT’d.
