This is the most turn key, fast, and properly upgraded Lotus Esprit on the market that could easily be used as a daily driver.
This car is better than new as the gearbox has been modified to accommodate the full potential of this 3.5 liter twin turbo V8 engine. Lotus designed this car to safely handle 500 horsepower, than detuned prior to launch to 350 hp for fear that the existing transmission could not handle the power. This Esprit is the car that Lotus wanted to build originally, and would have devoured 911 turbos of the time.
Mods include:
Custom Emco gear set and shaft.
ECU modified by P.U.K. Esprit Racing in Germany, “High Performance Option” , allowing higher boost and smoother running. Dash mounted switch controls low boost (0.5 Bar and high boost 1.0). Car runs much smoother than stock and combined with blow off valves, sounds amazing.
Upgraded 18” wheels with fresh tires and Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
Steering wheel replaced with Momo detachable unit, custom made hub. Original wheel with airbag will be included.
Stereo is a flip out Pioneer unit with Bluetooth and rear camera, very nice install as wiring was done with engine out of car.
Turbo boost and oil temp guage by DEFI, best units on the market and can be expanded.
Hardwired for windshield mounted Escort radar, plug and play.
Recently replaced within the last 5000 miles:
Clutch. Timing belt, plugs, brake lines. Basically, with the engine out, anything that was serviceable was serviced or replaced. Even the AC works in this car. Engine was repainted ferrari red.
Car is turn key and ready to go.
The car was originally calypso blue, than painted BLACK some time ago.
It appears to have been a very high end paint job, as much of the car was probably taken apart for paint. Currently, the paint shines well, no cracks, but has touched up rock ships on the nose (common for Esprits), and small scractches on the left rear fender. No dents or dings. Paint correction with ceramic coating done about few month ago.
Car has full repair receipts from all work I have done. It comes with original leather bound manual, one set of keys, solid color roof panel (no glass panel), front mounted tool kit, and wind deflector for when top is removed.
