Lotus Esprit Turbo HC Limited Edition No.10 of 21. Matching luggage! One registered U.K. owner from new! Incredible find! Supplied to a gentleman in Corby in Northamptonshire on 21st March 1987 until around 2004 and then it spent around 14 years as part of a car collection in Portugal. We have been fortunate enough to have repatriated it to these shores and it is in fabulous condition throughout. Just 5 were produced in two-tone Essex Blue metallic over Mediterranean Blue metallic. The other cars were in two tone red and two tone silver. Two of the 21 cars were unaccounted for and this leaves 19 worldwide. We have owned around six of these since the late Eighties, but this is the only one we have ever seen with the matching luggage that came with the cars when they were new. Supplied by the Norfolk Motor Company and they went on to service the car for the first owner. Fantastic body and paintwork and stunning two-tone blue suede leather interior. The HC Turbo is an incredible machine and an absolute joy to drive. It looks so right in the iconic Essex Blue colour that is so distinctive with the association with the F1 Lotus race cars in the early Eighties. Comes with the original factory air-conditioning and glass “targa” sunroof. The history file contains the pristine Owner’s Handbook with the service stamps and The Norfolk Motor Group wallet with all of the booklets and papers from new. This is a real piece of Lotus history and a glorious machine to admire and drive. Fully serviced with new cam-belt and a/c, water-pump, alternator belts as well. Fantastic original BBS alloys and original tool-kit. Original Clarion stereo system. Comes with the letter from the Lotus archives and Certificate of Provenance The aroma of the Esprit when you open the doors is pure Eighties! A unique opportunity.
