A superb example of the Peter Stevens-designed Esprit benefiting from much recent expenditure and a comprehensive history.

  • In October 1987, the Esprit received its first revamp since its initial launch in 1976 and was given the project codename ‘X180’; design was the work of Peter Stevens
  • Mechanically, the X180 differed little from its predecessor, the Esprit Turbo HC, with its 2,174cc, 16-valve, DOHC, Lotus 910 engine, developing the same 215bhp, and 220ft/lbs of torque
  • With a 0-60mph time of 5.4 seconds and a 0-100mph time of 13.3 seconds, it was actually faster than a Ferrari 328 GTB and Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2
  • This two-owner example was built in April 1988 and resided in Jersey until coming to the UK in 2011
  • Comprehensive service history which details the gearbox rebuild (at 52,000 miles in 2002) and the replacement of both alloy fuel tanks in 2005
  • In early 2022, the car was the recipient of over £15,000 worth of mechanical refurbishment, with corresponding invoices/receipts documenting the work carried out. Only 6,000 miles since 2011, having been dry stored when not in use
  • In lovely condition, with ‘driver’s mileage’ and in a very stylish colour combination, this cherished example would undoubtedly enhance the life of any enthusiast or collector alike.
