No 9 of 40, very rare, completely original and stunning 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo. This 80s supercar has covered only 62,700 miles and has full service history; original handbook; both sets of keys; fully operational remote central locking fobs; toolkit, alarm/immobiliser and protective cover for removable glass sunroof. Owned by mechanically sympathetic, fastidious mature Lotus fanatic.

Major ‘C Service’ (included replacement of engine timing belt, belt tensioner and auxiliary drive belts) carried out on 03/04/2019 at 59,693 miles.
Subsequent ‘A Service’ carried out 09/06/2020 at 62,159 miles.
MOT expires 2 July 2021. HPI clear.
Long list of recent preventative mechanical work undertaken by Lotus specialists including comprehensive ignition and fuel systems overhaul (pump, regulator, fuel tank breather pipes, ignition module, coil etc etc ) and a full gear linkage rebuild and set up.
The car also benefits from just having had a full Dellorto carb rebuild by a carb specialist using rare original Dellorto parts. Carbs look stunning and immaculate now as does the rest of the engine bay. The carbs on the HC turbos were specially manufactured for Lotus by Dellorto so expert refurbishment and setup is a must. Compare the engine bay pictures to other examples for sale and you can quickly see the exceptional condition and time lavished on my car to keep it in the best condition possible.
Original exhaust replaced with high quality stainless steel system for peace of mind.
All receipts retained in substantial service and maintenance file.
Fully operational and original Sony CD/Cassette Player and Graphic Equaliser, CD changer and electric retractable aerial.
Simply stunning unmarked original pearlescent white metallic paint, amazingly lustrous and sparkly in the sunlight, pictures just don’t do it justice. No evidence of any previous body repairs or paintwork. Exterior trim and body coloured alloy wheels all unmarked. Tyres are virtually new.
Blemish free original Connolly hide, suede and real burr walnut fascia. No tears or rips in interior. Truly beautiful interior which is light and airy unlike the standard black.
Solid silver hallmarked dashboard plaque identifying the car as no. 9 of only 40 anniversary models made worldwide.
Professionally detailed, stored and SORNd over winter months under a bespoke high quality fitted car cover.
Truly superb example of a rare, desirable and fast appreciating classic. I will be very sad to see her go, but unfortunately loss of secure local storage facility forces very reluctant sale.
Rare opportunity to join the 80s supercar club for a sensible outlay before these incredible cars are beyond reach.
Private Lotus-related plate included with asking price.
Please call 078796 33377 for further information and to arrange viewing.
For sale at only Β£29,000.
