Lotus Esprit Turbo, 1986. Essex Blue metallic with light silver blue half-leather


Lotus Esprit Turbo, 1986.  Essex Blue metallic in superb order and is complemented by the light silver blue half-leather interior as confirmed by the Lotus Archives to be the correct specification.  Factory air-conditioning and correct Blaupunkt Boston radio.  This is a rare unspoilt example and drives so well in terms of how they felt when they were new (I drove one with 10 miles on the clock in 1980 when they were launched) and have driven hundreds since that memorable day in October 1980.  This really is a joy to drive with a silky-smooth gear-change and superb pin-point steering accuracy.  New cam-belt and other drive belts fitted in September, 2019.   Masses other other detail work can be seen on the separate sheet (new clutch, all new brake hoses, reconditioned turbocharger, new exhaust manifold gaskets etc.).   This really is an exceptional example. £34,995
