--Silver with Red leather interior and Red carpeting, 32,000 original miles, 2,174cc DOHC 16-Valve Turbocharged 4-Cylinder Engine, 5-Speed Manual, Factory a/c, Exceptional in every way. The Lotus Esprit became an instant star when James Bond and 'Q' chose it for the 007 films “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “For Your Eyes Only.” A Turbo Esprit for Roger Moore as James Bond was used in “For Your Eyes Only” with skis strapped to the back for a skiing trip to Italy's posh Cortina ski resort. What more can be said, awesome! The Esprit design was unmistakably from the pen of designed Giorgetto Giugiaro. The Esprit featured all-independent suspension and Lotus's own 16-valve, four-cylinder engine placed transversely mid-ship, mated to a five-speed transaxle. Disc brakes were fitted to all four wheels, the rears being mounted inboard. In 2.2 liter turbocharged form, the Esprit produced 210bhp and was good for a top speed of 148mph, 0-60 mph attainable in just 6.1 seconds. Hand built in limited numbers; the Esprit remains one of the most iconic and popular thoroughbred sports cars ever produced. This incredibly low mileage Turbo Esprit has been owned by a good friend of Autosport Designs, Inc.

EXTERIOR The Peter Stevens redesign was unveiled in 1987 with this early 1988 example being one of the first revised cars and essentially identical to the car used in the iconic movie Pretty Woman. Stevens, who later went on to create the McLaren F1 was responsible for the radical restyling to a more rounded shape and the switch to a buttressed rear pane. This sensational example is finished in the original colour of Lotus Silver (code A40) which boasts a bright polished shine and uniform finish throughout thanks in part to a paint refresh. Only minimal markings to the finish can be seen and all trim sections, Lotus decals and badges are damage free and remain just as Lotus intended. The identity plate in the windscreen remains in place. Low slung, mid-engined and the vehicular star of a classic 1990’s blockbuster movie, your very own Edward and Vivian experience! INTERIOR Having covered such low mileage under absolute enthusiast ownership, the original Connolly hide upholstery individually cut and hand sewn has remained clean and largely wear free. Once installed low down in the anatomically sprung seats, the occupants are exposed to a traditional supercar environment which is not the most ergonomically advanced by modern standards but still surprisingly comfortable and demonstrates characteristic Lotus quirkiness! The original trimming to the fascia is fully intact and both front and rear storage compartments are clean. The carpets have been protected by genuine Lotus carpet mats. All functions and controls operate well including the period Pioneer DEH-770 stereo cassette. The sense of occasion and excitement is ever present to any occupant of this legendary Esprit, even before the key is turned! ENGINE & TRANSMISSION Fitted with the Lotus 2.2 Litre 910S 16v DOHC engine, this powerplant is turbo charged with two twin choke Dellorto carburettors, a set up that has remained true to the manufacturers design. A power output of 215bhp at 6250rpm achieves the 0-60 sprint in just 5.3 seconds with a top speed of 152mph. The five speed gearbox operates exactly as it should. Mid engined with near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the perfect recipe for the exhilarating classic supercar experience! WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The stunning seven spoke alloy wheels with Lotus stampings clearly defined are in superb order with only the faintest markings. Matching Toyo Proxes tyres all round of size 215/45 R15 front and 245/45 R16 rear have masses of tread remaining. Benefitting from a recent complete overhaul, the braking system incorporating 10.2in ventilated front discs and 10.8in rear discs offer assured stopping power to match the performance.
