Development started on the Lotus Turbo Esprit in late 1977 and
featured the new 2174cc. 910 engine (based on a redesigned 907
engine) with a dry sump (initially) and a Garrett AiResearch
Turbocharger. producing 210bhp. There were larger brakes. revised
rear suspension and additions to the bodywork. including front
spoiler and rear integrated spoiler and sills. The car was released
in February 1980 at a party in the Royal Albert Hall and sported
Essex Turbo livery. In 1981 the car was sold as the Turbo Esprit
and sold very well indeed.

The Giorgetto Giugiaro designed car was one of the fastest
accelerating cars in its day with this one owned. from new. by the
vendor and presents in strong Calypso Red with half-gold leather
upholstery and air-conditioning. The majority of servicing and
repairs have been carried out by Lotus Cars Ltd at Hethel with the
exception of the odd oil/filter changes. After a number of related
issues over a number of years concerning water in the oil. the
engine and clutch were finally replaced free of charge by Lotus in
1991. The following year it benefitted from a complete repaint by
ICI.

In June 1994. after Bugatti purchased Lotus. a couple of power
units were found and offered for sale. Each unit comprised full
engine. carburettors. distributer. turbo unit. starter motor &
alternator. These were possibly the last two available worldwide
and the chance was too good to miss. They were purchased and fitted
breathing new life into this already well presented Esprit Turbo.
Good quality examples are coveted and. having just returned from a
full service including timing belts and MoT test. this classic
Lotus is the model to collect.

Interested parties should note that the current
number plate is to be retained and a new. age-related plate will be
issued instead.
