A rare opportunity to purchase one of the officially recognised last 15 UK Esprits (its status denoted on a brushed aluminium plaque on the glovebox). This Esprit features on the cover of current issue of Absolute Lotus magazine.
This V8 SE was delivered in March 2003 and is officially recognised (certificate of provenance from Lotus Cars) as the final Cobalt Blue-coloured Esprit delivered in the UK. Has matching blue/grey full leather interior. Vehicle is in factory original specification other than being fitted with a (cosmetically similar) sports exhaust (original exhaust is included).
It has covered 23k miles and is believed to be one of just 11 of the final batch of 15 UK Esprits that remain in the UK, as three have been exported and one written off.
This Esprit is currently on a personal plate that is NOT included in the purchase (will revert to SL03 GDK). It has had two previous owners and has full documented service history and full paperwork provenance. Lotus main dealer annual services and recently maintained by renowned Lotus specialist Max 500 in Guildford who carried out a B Service and timing belt change in June 2021. The car will be offered fresh from service with a new MOT.
Full details of the service and maintenance history and documentation available to view to serious enquirers. Open to sensible offers from serious potential buyers.
