Hello up for your consideration is my 1987 Lotus Esprit Turbo HCI.  It has under 30000 miles and is in very nice condition.  The car was an impulse buy by me and i have 2 other esprits already.  It was basically totally gone over top to bottom.  The previous owner kindof misrepresented it in the auction and i basically had to do alot of catchup work.  Alot of things were done.  If youre really a buyer i can go over details about it but timing belt was done. new steering. new heater core. and all the typical tune up things that should be done when you dont know the previous owner.  The car has a smooth 5 speed.  A good clutch.  Nice suspension.  Idles and runs great.  Alot of the early esprits didnt have interiors that held up very well.  this interior is very nice.  it has the removable roof.  all electronics work.  it also doesnt leak anything.  It is almost 30 years old so  one detraction is the paint.  From 10 feet it looks great but if you get close you can see the typical paint issues on fibergalss.  There is NO clearcoat peeling however.  Its not that bad.  I just dont want to make it spund like the paint is new.  Its not but i wouldnt paint it.  If you are a perfectionist or you happen to own your own paint shop then go for it.  The other detraction is the a/c system doesnt blow cold.  It just happened and i will let the next owner deal with it. I dont have the time.  This is just a nice running car thats been gone through for the next owner to drive problem free.  I wouldnt hesitate to drive this car home if you want to.  Email me with any questions and thanks for looking at my auction.  

 

forgot to mention. new mp3 cd player and speakers all the way around.   also there are alot of receipts for work completed.

Hello: I am currently in the market for a 1986 or 1987 Lotus Esprit Turbo HCI car, and this one keeps popping up when I do an internet search, although a lot of the ads I'm seeing don't have posting dates, so forgive me if this ad is 5 years old! I'm located in CT. Phone/texting number is: (860) 205-5566 I appreciate your reply. racecarguy@aol.com Not interested in a basket case, full restoration project; just a nice car that might need a little TLC. If no longer available, perhaps you know of another?
