1980 Lotus Esprit Turbo rebuild

Entries in this blog


The new colour of the car.

Found and engine, was also in an Essex that had a fire.

Did a lot of work on the car. This is the photo of the colour.

This car was the first 2.2 turbo car to be built after the Essex.

It is also the first one to have the Copper fire Read colour.

This roof radio is still missing.




Some work completed on the car and found an engine

What the car looks like after lots of work.

The car didn't have the orriginal rims one.

This car is the fist 2.2 Turbo to be built after the Essex cars and the first to have the Copper Fire Red colour.

It came with the Roof radio RM 610. It is missing now, so if anyone knows where one is, it would help. Doesn't matter if it is broken.

It left the factory on the 24th of Decemeber 1980.

Got a dry sump engine too.




What the car looked like when I bought it

Bought the car from a used car parking lot, it had been standing there for about six years.

Didn't have an engine, gearbox or rims. Also missing the Panasonic RM610radio.

Other than the above missing items, the car was complete.
