THE BEST VALUE LOTUS ESPRIT TURBO S4 AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET
Dating from August 1994 this striking Esprit series 4 features the 2.2 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine, mid-mounted for ideal weight distribution, rear wheel drive and driven through a 5-speed manual 'box.
This example, quite the eye-catcher in its yellow and green detailing has undergone a colour change recorded with DVLA from British Racing Green to Yellow in July 2012 although the green theme has been maintained with green rear wing, vents, valances and some interior trim to match. The current registered keeper has enjoyed the car over the last 5 years covering around 5,000 miles in this time in this 264bhp rocket-ship.
Inside we see the usual array of hand stitched leather, with additional after market trim and quilted leather adorning various edges and panels in the cockpit.
The lotus has just returned from a well respected north west based lotus specialist who has been through the car and got it up to a good mechanical standard. This has cost in excess of £2500 and has included a full fuel system overhaul bringing it up to safe and correct standards which has included fitting of high pressure braided fuel hoses that have been specially made, Full rear subframe suspension bush replacement and correct camber adjustment, Complete brake servo overhaul including all vacuum hoses and new vacuum pump. There has also been lots of other replacement parts (Too many to list)
The car has just passed its full 12 months MOT at the same specialist garage with No advisories which speaks volumes on a car of this age
The history file includes the V5 and an impressive 18 old MOT certificates plus current clean MOT running until 2nd August 2021, owners manual and service book with 14 stamps showing it was supplied new in July 1994 by White Dove Garages Ltd of Cardiff, registered M969HTX. There are some 14 service stamps plus 2 further hand written entires, the last by Esprit Engineering, Lotus specialist at 69,000 miles. An additional entry suggests the timing belt and tensioner was changed at 63,500 miles.
A file of invoices within the history file include a new fuel pump in April 2020, new calipers in October 2018, a more recent lube service including new track rod ends in May 2017, a repair to the fuel tank and new breather pipe in March 2015. Another, undated 3-page invoice reveals the body was removed and various replacement parts fitted including new brake pipes, body mount bolts, powder coating of suspension parts and replacement rear shocks fitted.In relation to this work, related parts invoices on file suggest this work was done through the summer of 2017.
In another selection of invoices we find evidence of a timing belt and tensioner change in June 2014 along with new in tank fuel pump and injectors by Esprit Engineering at a cost of £1,159, fitment of a Quicksilver exhaust and recon charge cooler pump in 2013 at a cost of £819. We also see a purchase receipt for some £876 euros for a blow off valve, performance clutch, exhaust back pressure switch and stainless braided clutch line.
In addition to the file of invoices we also see a selection of original sales brochures for the S4, purchase receipts, historic data checks and Lotus Esprit World Freescan manual version 1 with box of cables etc. The alloy wheels have just been professionally powder coated and are wrapped in as new tyres.
An attractively priced Esprit S4 with scope for minor cosmetic improvement (chips to the paint etc) that offers proper sports car credentials with super car looks and very good history file at a very affordable price for one of these sports cars!!
VIEWING OF THIS S4 IS NOT ONLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BUT VERY MUCH WELCOMED
