The Lotus Esprit built between 1976 and 2004 was unveiled in
1972 as a concept car and was a development of a stretched Lotus
Europa chassis. It was among the first of designer Giorgetto
Giugiaro's polygonal 'folded paper' designs. Originally. the name
Kiwi was proposed but. in keeping with the Lotus tradition of
having all car model names start with the letter 'E'. the name
became Esprit.

Introduced in April 1981. the Turbo Esprit and Series III
Esprits marked a necessary consolidation; both new models had a
common chassis. inheriting much of the configuration of the Essex
cars whilst body production was based on a single common set of
moulds. The SIII continued to use the 2. 2 litre. type 912 engine. br/>whilst the Turbo Esprit reverted to a less complex wet-sump
lubrication system. retaining the power and torque outputs of its
dry-sump predecessor. The interior for both cars was revised and
featured new trim; combined with changes to the body moulds this
resulted in more headroom and an enlarged footwell. Externally. the
Turbo Esprit retained the full aerodynamic body kit of the Essex
cars and featured prominent 'Turbo Esprit' decals on the nose and
sides.

This 1988 Turbo is presented in white with contrasting black
wheels and red leather interior. a striking combination. Having
covered less than 59. 00 miles. this example has had a chassis
assembly replacement in 2001 by Lotus and with the previous owner
offering a 'fix-at-all-costs' attitude. a full documented engine
re-build took place in 2005 with less than 6. 00 miles covered
since. Offered with a full service history up to and covering
36. 00 miles and having had such documented engine work completed
in 2005. this car has a significant service history and with the
current vendor an enthusiast who has garaged and used the car
sparingly during the summer months. we can safely say this car has
been well cared for. Offered with this car is also the original
wheels and original tool kit and. combined with a very reasonable
estimate. this is a chance to own a classic 80's supercar.
