  2. LOTUS ESPRIT V8 GT Year: 1999 Lotus began delivering the Esprit in 1976 and the final examples of the 10,500 units built didn’t roll out of the production halls until 28 years later in 2003. Its extreme, yet classical and timeless wedge shape was based on design proposals by Giorgetto Giugiaro and didn’t undergo a major facelift until 1988. The low vehicle height of just 1.12 metres is also extreme and makes it appear incredibly fast, even when stationary. Most Esprits were fitted with 4-cylinder engines with a 2 or 2.2-litre displacement. From 1996, the Esprit could also be ordered with the newly-developed 3.5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. Approximately 1,500 buyers now found themselves equipped with car engines on a par with the super sports cars from famous Italian car manufacturers. The exterior is finished in the striking combination of Azure Blue with Gun Metal Grey, 6 spoke O.Z Racing wheels. Along the side and to the rear there are various decals celebrating Lotus and even a Colin Chapman signature to the rear. The interior is striking with the door cards and Carbon Fibre Bucket seats being trimmed in Magnolia leather with blue Alcantara inserts, the seats have V8 embroidered to the top and the door cards have the Lotus Emblem to the centre. The rest of the interior is finished in black leather and carpet throughout. To the road, power certainly is not in short supply with the 3.5 litre V8 twin turbo engine producing 345 hp, and as ever the lotus has the handling ability to support this power. I purchase a centre Stainless steel exhaust from PNM Engineering in august of 2019 and the car sounds awesome. We also refreshed the wishbone bushes, gearbox and engine mounts. It has had a 17 dealer services as stamped in the service booklet. A major service was carried out in July 2019 which include Cambelts, tensioners and idlers totalling £1600. It has just been serviced on 16th June 2021 at a cost of £1100. This was also when the MOT was done. A video of the car can be seen here. I say in the video that they are full leather seats. That is incorrect they are leather and suede! The post Esprit V8 GT appeared first on Click to view item

  10. A Lotus Elise 111R in Ardent Red with a black leather interior. One owner from new and a FULL, and I mean full, service history. Every single invoice and MOT has been carefully retained and chronologically filed by its first and only owner. Originally supplied by Bell & Colvill in Surrey, they are the only company to whom any servicing and repairs have been entrusted. The service stamps are too numerous to fit in one book and confirm servicing as follows… July 2004 973 miles Bell & Colvill January 2005 9515 miles Bell & Colvill January 2006 19953 miles Bell & Colvill November 2006 28400 miles Bell & Colvill September 2007 39860 miles Bell & Colvill June 2008 44607 miles Bell & Colvill August 2009 51154 miles Bell & Colvill September 2010 56674 miles Bell & Colvill June 2012 63115 miles Bell & Colvill June 2013 64222 miles Bell & Colvill June 2014 65236 miles Bell & Colvill June 2015 66857 miles Bell & Colvill June 2016 67347 miles Bell & Colvill June 2017 67671 miles Bell & Colvill July 2018 67907 miles Bell & Colvill July 2019 68244 miles Bell & Colvill Current mileage is 68700 (4041 per annum). To their credit, when the vehicle went to Bell & Colvill in July 2020, as it had only covered minimal mileage, they advised that a service was really not necessary so undertook just an MOT test and a visual check over. Every single invoice and MOT certificate is present, along with the complete owners’ pack and two keys. The specification includes a Touring Pack, Category One alarm and a Tracker (subscription required). The Blaupunkt Woodstock DAB radio, supplied from new, is still present and in good fettle. Recent work includes an upgrade to the radiator and a set of ‘LTS’ stamped Yokohama AD07 tyres just 900 miles ago. The ‘arachnid’ wheels have recently been refurbished and are in an unmarked condition. I am confident that you will not find a better condition car of this age and you definitely will not find a better service history. Should the new owner be located in the South East and should they wish to continue with the impeccable service history, I would be prepared for them to take the vehicle back to Bell & Colvill for a service, at my expense. The MOT is valid until late July 2021 but will be renewed prior to sale. You will search a long time for a better example of a 2004 111R. Remember – 1 owner and a full main dealer service history. I have undertaken an HPI check, showing no adverse information and a copy is on file for the benefit of the next owner. BUY WITH CONFIDENCE – GUY MUNDAY HAS OVER THIRTY YEARS OF LOTUS BRAND EXPERIENCE. Please call at any time – 07718 385168 – to discuss further and to arrange a viewing. Evenings and weekends always a pleasure. Nationwide delivery available at modest extra cost. Many thanks for looking!

  13. 20th Anniversary edition in yellow Please see the advert above for more photos 20th Anniversary edition I’m considering selling my low mileage 20th Anniversary model Supercharged Elise 220 S Club Racer in fantastic condition. Just passed 10,000 miles. Benefits from a TRD Intake kit and 2Tubular Sports exhaust. Sounds fantastic! Black Forged Alloys in Excellent condition. Yokohama Advan 07 tyres with plenty of tread. It has the sport mode button for a bit extra sharpness. Switchable Traction control Remote central locking and electric windows Air conditioning Leather doorcards Leather sports seats. The leather seats are fantastic and have colour coded harness holes with 20th Embroidery. Floor mats also have the 20th Anniversary logo. Twin Airbags Start button Insulated soft top FSH including recently serviced at a lotus specialist and had a full Geometry setup at the same time. It’s just returned from its 2nd NC500 trip which it is the ideal car for. I’ve added a few charge points, and an Android Joying stereo Sat Nav unit is available if wanted. It’s has reversing sensors and an Optimate charging lead/point fitted. (Rear camera also can be used but not wired up yet – license plate surround type) It now has audible indicators – a bug bear of mine from the original set up. And you need to be a contortionist to do it! I’ve fitted a light to the boot and 12V outlets there too. It really is an amazing car and the colour just pops out in the sunshine! I’ve owned it for 3 years and I’m the 3rd owner ( my 4th Lotus and the one I’ve owned the longest) but seriously considering moving to an Evora (or Jag F type) so also open to P/ex or swap.

  14. I have found that you cannot get a replacement aerial that fits in the space of a Stevens esprit. Whatever the classic aerial shops say. The only option is to rebuild. Sadly relays etc that fit are also hard to come by. I have had two aerials rebuilt. I am selling one at cost plus £10 carriage; I know it was an outrageous about of money – but for anyone out there who prefers originality…. here it is I’ll upoad photos when I can Thanks The post Esprit SE ( 88-93) GENUINE AERIAL REBUILT – IN WORKING ORDER appeared first on Click to view item
  15. This naturally aspirated Esprit looks great in black with JPS-style gold wheels and stripe. However what sets this car apart is the various improvements made under the body (outlined below), which should very much appeal if you are looking for a mechanically sorted Esprit to drive. I have owned this car since 2010, and drove it very regularly until 2016 when it cut out one day and would not start. The arrival of a baby, new house and then second baby meant that it sat in my garage for almost 5 years (!) waiting for me to fix it. But fix it I have (it was, annoyingly, something quite simple in the end), and while it is great to have the car going again, time has come for me to part with it. This is a well looked after car (check the online MOT history), with almost all work carried out by myself during my ownership. The car has a detailed history and a file of receipts for everything that has been done. Please note that the car is located in the north east of Scotland, around 30miles west of Aberdeen. MOT until April 2022 Engine The car has a fuel injected HC engine with L14 cams and vernier pulleys. The cylinder head has been gas-flowed with 3-angle cut valve seats (done by Gary Kemp). It has an MBE 956 ECU, TWM throttle bodies and Bosch fuel injectors. The engine was completely rebuilt at around 99,000 miles. After the rebuild the ecu was re-mapped on a rolling road, and showed around 225hp/200ftlb torque. As with any rolling road figure I would take this with a serious pinch of salt, but it is significantly faster than a standard car. It has lots of torque (it will happily take almost any corner in 4th gear) and is very progressive in terms of power delivery, right up to the limit. It has a brand new PNM engineering hi-torque starter motor and Yuasa battery, along with a new coil-pack, crank sensor, plugs and leads (all replaced as part of the quest to remedy the non-start issue). Engine newly serviced (oil, filter, coolant, thermostat), with the timing belt also just replaced. Exhaust It has a Lotusbits full stainless steel exhaust system with 4-2-1 manifold. This has a single exhaust pipe. I would note that the car is significantly louder than standard, but with a lovely mechanical howl from the intake and the exhaust. Gearbox/Linkage/Clutch The gearbox in the car has been newly re-built. All the linkages and the crossgate cable have been replaced in my ownership and are still good. It has the early 0.86:1 ratio pivot leaver and the SJ Sportscars gearchange modification fitted. As a result the gear leaver is a pleasure to use. The clutch and pressure plate were replaced at 81K. It has a stainless steel braded clutch hose fitted. Suspension Being an ‘85 car, it has the later Toyota style front suspension without trunnions. It has the Lotus-developed Bilstein Dampers / Eibach Springs fitted, along with the Lotus-developed Polybushes throughout (except for the anti-roll bar bushes, which were replaced with standard items). Brakes & Wheels PNM engineering 286mm Hi-Spec 4-pot front callipers and vented discs. New EBC Yellowstuff pads to the front. Standard rear callipers. Brake fluid newly replaced. It has a stainless steel braded brake hoses fitted front and rear. Matching Vredestein SP tires (195x55x15R to front; 225/60x15R to rear). The wheels were refurbished in 2012, but some corrosion is appearing through the paint again. Fuel Tanks Lotusbits aluminium fuel tanks with in-built swirl pots for the fuel injection system. Large diameter cross pipe (makes filling up much quicker). Interior / Exterior The car was re-trimmed in full leather around the year 2000, but the seats are now showing some wear. Otherwise it is in good general condition. It has the fully removable sunroof. The car was originally red, and was re-sprayed by the last owner around the year 2000. It polishes up well enough, but there are some blemishes/stone chips/etc. Final Note This is a good value, very usable Esprit, looking for the right owner. It is noisy, fast and fun. Give me a call and I can tell you anything else you might want to know. The post Lotus Esprit S3; 1985; Black appeared first on Click to view item
