Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.5) based on 82 votes
Lotus Esprit S2 1979Black with gold pin stripes and decals with Brown Velour and Cream Leather interior (Best Colour) SOLD AS A RUNNING RESTORATION Bought by ourselves a couple of months ago after previously being dry stored in a garage for 25 years by previous owner.Has been in our workshop and undergone a light restoration to bring the car to its current standard. Interior is excellent for its age. Leather is still very supple and no sagging to cloth/velour etc and no sagging to the doors. Does have an aftermarket sunroof but not the typical small designs and does compliment the car. All electrics now work and engine starts, runs and all gears can be selected. Have driven it round our yard and no problems, car is very responsive and excellent oil pressure. Work to engine as follows:Carburettors removed, stripped, cleaned and rebuiltNew fuel lines fitted Both fuel tanks hold fuel and look to be in good conditionChassis look in very good order with light surface rust. However it has been noted that there is a 5 inch long rust damage to one side of the chassis. Not rusted through but will need attention. (Please see photo attached to give you an idea showing the location of the rust).  Overall the paintwork is good and looks original. However there is spidering in places and age related marks as expected. Bonnet and front quarter is worst effected. Now selling this car on as a light running restoration project but is a fabulous starting base for someone who wants a genuine complete car as very rare to find them in this condition and as a running restoration to put your own stamp on. We do have walk around videos that can be provided.Viewings welcome but car WILL NEED to be trailered away by winning bidder. Just received confirmation from DVLA that logbook is on its way and will be with us shortly. Car will only be sold once the logbook has been received by ourselves. HPI clear (certificate provided)This is a very rare opportunity to buy a complete unmolestered S2.MOT & Tax Exempt SOLD AS SEEN Car will only be released once full payment has been made via Bank Transfer.Any questions please call Neil on 07885783835Many thanks

Reason for selling is that we have another 6 Esprits undergoing restoration and have taken it as far as we would like ready for hopefully a Lotus enthusiast to take it further and put their own stamp on it.
