THE LOTUS ESPRIT

One of the longest running post-war British sports cars, the Esprit first surfaced as a Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed Ital Design project car at the 1972 Turin Motor Show, the silver prototype having come about following a chance encounter between Giugiaro and Lotus boss Colin Chapman. The car was well received, and following a protracted development program, the sports car finally entered production in 1976. The Esprit retained Lotus's trademark backbone chassis but deviated from previous designs by employing front and rear sub-frames to support the all-independent suspension and engine/gearbox unit. The Esprit metamorphosed through several series over the next two decades, gaining a 2.2-liter engine, turbo-charged induction and a new body design along the way. 1989 saw that Special Equipment (SE) version with a water to air intercooler Lotus called a Chargecooler.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This top-of-the-line fourth-generation Lotus Esprit Turbo SE is finished in bright red over tan. The turbo SE is believed to be one of only 22 SE models produced in 91. Being a 1991, the car is fitted with anti-lock brakes and driver's side air-bags. Today, the car presents very well and has clearly been maintained to a high standard. At the time of cataloging, the odometer reading was 35,725, though the Carfax reports a slight discrepancy in 2011. Upon inspection, the condition of the car is commensurate with a vehicle that has traveled a very short distance and would lead one to believe that the actual mileage is within a few thousand of the current reading. The Carfax also shows that in 2009 at 33,585 miles, the transmission was rebuilt, and the clutch was replaced. The car received another service in 2015, and was most recently treated to an oil and filter change in 2016. When considering the extremely low production numbers, superb performance, and great condition, this Lotus Esprit makes for a wonderful, modern collectable that is sure to be cherished for years to come.
