Lotus Turbo Esprit (1980-1986)
I bought this car in Sep. 2003 the colour is calypso red with tan half-hide interior. The engine was completely rebuilt in the end of 2004.
The car is original except a smaller MOMO-Corse wheel, alarm and CDL which was fitted by me.
The car-alarm features remote-start (cool gadget) and Turbo-timer.
Some minor issues e.g. non-working cigar-lighter/automatic antenna will be fixed soon...
OK - fixed the automatic antenna myself...what a pain in the *sss
Unfortunately, a rod cam through the block last autum, so now the Esprit will get a new mod...a new-out-of-the-box S4 engine <img src="style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
To be completed by the end of June.
OK, it's beginning of September now - not end of June, but - It's Done!
The S4S engine which I have bought from Garry Kemp is in and running! My mate who did the conversion also put a nice Chargecooler on it, but it's not connected yet, as I would like to drive the Esprit for a while before taking the next steps...
Next thing on the to-do list is to produce a new engine cover, as the old one does not fit with the chargecooler in place.
I am thinking of a transparent cover made of Lexan or Macrolon...
Connecting the carputer to freescan to show several info on the screen while on the move ...
