Lotus Esprit Turbo 1987(1988 model). No. 007 of the 243 of the 1988 model year that were produced. Owned by Lotus Cars Ltd. for over two years and used to develop the ABS braking system in later years (this retains the standard braking system). Pictures were taken by Lotus at the time as the ABS braking system was being tested on snow in the winter and can be seen in the B&W photographs with the helicopter flying above. Stunning original Calypso Red with full Raven leather with contrasting grey stripes and slate nylon carpets. Original registration E432 PPW which harks back to James Bond's white S1 Esprit PPW 306R. Just 48,000 miles from new and one private engineer owner between Lotus Cars Ltd ownership and us acquiring the Esprit earlier on this year. Full specification of air-conditioning, full leather trim, glass sunroof and stereo fitting kit. This is the earliest Peter Stevens shape Esprit we have ever owned (registered 4th Dec. 1987). We had a very early 1988 Esprit when it was just a coupleof months of age back then (also Calypso Red). We have fully serviced the vehicle with new cam-belt, alternator belt, water-pump and belt, air-conditioning belt, fluid changes etc. We also fitted a new complete 3 piece clutch assembly. All four brake callipers have been overhauled, new handbrake cables, new fuel lines, fuel and air-filters, rebuilt carburettors, new plugs. New gear-change cables. New clutch master cylinder and upgraded braided steel clutch hose. New battery. Letter from the Lotus Archives and Certificate of Provenance. This is a piece of Lotus history as well as a fantastic low-mileage car to drive. The lovely interior has been well persevered, including the 'NO SMOKING' (never seen before) stickers above the ashtrays for the Lotus personnel to adhere to! One of the most original early Peter Stevens' 'new shape' Esprits we have seen for decades. Great fun!

Offered up for sale we have perhaps one of the most iconic cars of the eighties, finished in the legendary John Player Special livery this Lotus Esprit S3 Turbo is true show stopper. The S3 Turbo Esprit was the posterchild of the yuppie brigade! Sitting in and driving this car takes you back to a time of big hair, big sunglasses and shoulder pads, big spoilers and in this case, big turbo's! The vehicle has serious pace for a car of its age, once the big turbo spools up the boost pins you in your bucket seat. It is almost obligatory to have the period Blaupunkt stereo permanently tuned into Duran Duran! The vehicle spent a number of years in dry storage before undergoing a full two-year restoration, the hard work and attention to detail is obvious and the car is as good underneath as it is on top. The car features some personalized cosmetic enhancements such as a full body de-seam and roof rail delete, which really accentuate Guigaro's design and lines. This Esprit S3 is already a classic within itsown right, covering only 56,000 miles from new its not only rare but highly sought after. The cars origins are further backed up by a genuine Lotus certificate of provenance accompanied by a supporting letter. With only 4 owners since 1984 and an MOT until August next year this is a perfect useable classic that's very capable of turning heads wherever you go. The unique 80's styling has cemented its place in history and the price on these vehicles is only on the way up with good examples like our car appreciating every year. This is a rare opportunity to own a truly awesome classic Lotus. The gold coloured BBS wheels have been fully refurbished and shod with brand new rubber. Various rubber trims have been renewed and an in-depth mechanical run through undertaken. She is now ready to grace any collection, indulge the boy hood fantasy or just hit the open road and boost towards the horizon in pure 80's style. Viewing by appointment only.

Lotus Esprit Turbo HC Limited Edition No.10 of 21. Matching luggage! One registered U.K. owner from new! Incredible find! Supplied to a gentleman in Corby in Northamptonshire on 21st March 1987 until around 2004 and then it spent around 14 years as part of a car collection in Portugal. We have been fortunate enough to have repatriated it to these shores and it is in fabulous condition throughout. Just 5 were produced in two-tone Essex Blue metallic over Mediterranean Blue metallic. The other cars were in two tone red and two tone silver. Two of the 21 cars were unaccounted for and this leaves 19 worldwide. We have owned around six of these since the late Eighties, but this is the only one we have ever seen with the matching luggage that came with the cars when they were new. Supplied by the Norfolk Motor Company and they went on to service the car for the first owner. Fantastic body and paintwork and stunning two-tone blue suede leather interior. The HC Turbo is an incredible machine and anabsolute joy to drive. It looks so right in the iconic Essex Blue colour that is so distinctive with the association with the F1 Lotus race cars in the early Eighties. Comes with the original factory air-conditioning and glass 'targa' sunroof. The history file contains the pristine Owner's Handbook with the service stamps and The Norfolk Motor Group wallet with all of the booklets and papers from new. This is a real piece of Lotus history and a glorious machine to admire and drive. Fully serviced with new cam-belt and a/c, water-pump, alternator belts as well. Fantastic original BBS alloys and original tool-kit. Original Clarion stereo system. Comes with the letter from the Lotus archives and Certificate of Provenance The aroma of the Esprit when you open the doors is pure Eighties! A unique opportunity.

This low mileage, largely original Lotus Esprit Turbo is a very significant car. C957 XSC is the 1985 Motor Show Car, fitted with a dated commemorative plaque and coming with history from new. The Lotus was supplied new by Victor Wilson Limited in Edinburgh on the 1st January 1986 to a Mr H Herbert in Fife. Supplied new in White with Blue leather upholstery, the Esprit was taken to the supplying Edinburgh dealership on the 19th February 1986 for its 500 to 1000 mile free service. The original maintenance/service book confirms the Esprit was maintained in its early life by Lotus Distributors Murray Motor Company with services recorded at 4980, 8710, 12873 and 18104 in 1991. On the 31st August 1991 the Lotus changed hands for the first time, moving south to Berkshire and services are recorded at 21767, 37454, 42095 and 47672 in 1999. The Lotus spent the early 2000's in the South of England and over the next ten years the car covered a further 16500 miles. MOT certificates from 2010 record the mileageat 64345, 66147 in 2011 and the car was then off the road until being re-tested in 2016 at 66888 miles confirming very little mileage has been covered in recent years. Within the past 3000 miles considerable expenditure has gone into the car, receipts confirming a new clutch kit, new ignition items, new front brake pads and discs and a re-conditioned radiator are with the car. Further documentation also confirms re-conditioned brake calipers have been fitted, the cylinder head gasket has been replaced along with all belts and a new exhaust manifold and waste gate adapter fitted. More recently, in 2017 the turbo was reconditioned by Turbo Solutions, the carburettors were stripped and ultrasonically cleaned and rebuilt with genuine Dellorto parts and the wheels fully re-furbished. This is clearly a very special car and it should appeal to both collectors and enthusiasts. Mileage and early history is very important, the Motor Show provenance and the fact the car has recently featured on the frontcover of a recently published book on the Lotus Esprit also makes this car more interesting and the condition doesn't disappoint either. This Esprit appears remarkably original, the interior trim is delightful, honest and is in lovely condition throughout. The Connelly Blue hide leather is fabulous, high quality carpets look impressive and the interior clearly demonstrates what a low mileage, well cared for example this is. External presentation is very good, the paintwork has nicely aged and is a of a high standard and certainly meets expectations considering its never required restoration. Its quite clear fastidious owners have cherished this car and we know from the paperwork its been part of a large collection for some years and on two occasions featured in the Beaujolias run to France and back. Boasting a stainless steel exhaust system, air-conditioning, rebuilt turbo and its full lift out glass roof, this is a perfectly usable modern classic offering fabulous 80's looks, superb performanceand it will be supplied to its next owner fully serviced, ready to go with a full 12 months MOT. Price: 37,995
