  2. Set of S1 alloys off of my Launch edition Evora. I got two set of wheels with the car when i bought it but now need to clear space. In solid condition with working TPMS sensors. front tyres decent tread, rears pretty shot so i think they need replacing. allows could do with a refurb if you want them perfect or leave them if using as a set of winter wheels. £500 ONO Please PM me if you have any questions The post Set of S1 18/19 alloys plus tyres appeared first on Click to view item
  3. A very rare Motorsport Black, Hethel Edition 2+2 in perfect condition. This is an opportunity to own a very rare Hethel edition example. Probably the only Motorsport Black Hethel Edition ever produced (as far as I know). The “All Black” makes the car “mysterious and Classy”. The gold fleck in the colour is very special. Sad to see my car goes but recent health issues resulted in me not driving the car enough. So time for this special car to go to a new home. Genuine 12,205 miles. Bought in Sep 2018 from Bell & Colvill and has a full Lotus service history. Other than SatNav needed to be replaced under Lotus warranty, the car never missed a beat and is in perfect condition. Car never been to trackdays (I have a Caterham for that). Car kept in de-humidified heated garage connected to Cteck charger. Ceramic coated and carefully detailed & looked after. Powered by supercharged Toyota V6 400BHP. A bullet proof engine for reliability & performance. IPS gearbox with addicting rev matching blips on downshift. Evora 4** are the best exhaust sound Lotus ever made (Emira will not sound as nice as Evora because of new law & regulations). Gloss black forged alloy wheels & in perfect condition. Two rear seats that are useful if you have children. Pet free and smoke free car. Service History: – 23/11/17 @ 1840 miles: Oakmere Lotus, Northwich. – 2/10/18 @ 7955 miles: Bell & Colvill Lotus, Surrey. – 15/11/19 @ 11066 miles: Leven Lotus, Edinburgh. – 2/3/2021 @11,367 miles: Craig Moncrieff Lotus, Edinburgh. Please let me know if you want more details. Pre purchase inspection and/or ECU printout (to check how the car have been driven), can be arranged with Craig Moncrieff who knows the car well. However, I’m also happy for your independent inspector. Private registration number not included in the sale price. Any question, please ask.

  6. This fabulous Esprit Turbo was originally supplied new by The Norfolk Motor Company on the 1st August 1986 and is supported with a sizeable history file detailing previous work, MOT test certificates, many works invoices over 30 years and the Lotus Certificate of Provenance. The car is in very original condition, with the existing paint, interior and mechanical parts having been very well maintained, the engine was fully re-build in July 2018, and since then, and in my ownership the car has been used regularly with steady monthly mileage being added to keep it running smoothly. To compliment this exceptional car also present is the original log book and sales documents along with a dealer stamped service handbook up to 69,000 miles. It is one of 15 cars produced in 1986 in Calypso Red, and comes with full cream leather interior, glass sun roof and working air-conditioning. It is recorded as the 16 from last to come out of Hethel before the facelift and uprated HC model was introduced. There is also supporting documentation from the lotus forums with previous owners updates going back to 2009 giving further provenance to its originality and condition. Used and serviced regularly (Full B service & MOT complete in July 2021 with new oil, filters, coolant change, NGK plugs, front brake pads, AC compressor and gear linkage bushes renewed), the car, engine and gearbox all run smoothly. All gauges operate and read correctly, the AC works properly and the car drives very well. All new parts have been supplied by lotus specialist SJS and works carried out by classic car specialist. Central locking, LED headlamps and an Apple / Android touchscreen have been added to improve the driving experience. This car is in excellent condition and has just been seen (see pictures) gracing the South Lawn at Blenheim Palace as part of the 2021 Salon Prive Trophy Event where it joined a very select group of Esprit Turbos. This car is in superb original condition, well maintained, regularly used and great to drive, any inspection welcome, a new emira is ordered so I need to make way sadly for it.

  10. I’m sure everyone will be surprised I’m putting my Esprit up for sale. However things change and I’d like to change my daily driver to something else, plus having 3 cars I am finding a bit expensive! Anyway she is a Lotus Esprit Turbo from 1985. The colour of Glacier Blue A44. The car has been repainted this year and has had loads of new parts and no expense spared. The Engine was rebuilt a few years ago by Lola who used to run the Formula 1 team. The car drives great and sounds fantastic The engine had a cambelt service in February 2020. The carbs have been tuned, fuel system refreshed and all repainted and neatened. All nuts and bolts are stainless steel, new tyres, reconditioned wheels, all reconditioned or new trim. New rear suspension, new rear brakes Tracker fitted New MOT with no advisories The interior is complete, but needs recolouring in some places. There are currently no Decals (stickers) fitted, I have some ready to be fitted but maybe better for them new owner to decide if they want them on the car or not Email me at [email protected] or call me on 07900 646117 Car is located in Gravesend, Kent. Video of the engine running is available on request The post Lotus Esprit Turbo 1985 appeared first on Click to view item
  11. I’m clearing out my garage of unwanted spare parts and odd bits having recently sold my 1988 Stevens Esprit N/A. Although I can help with the details of some of the items shown in the images (some of which are new), I’m not sure of everything. Here are the key bits to mention: Rear used brake calipers, discs and pads – replaced o/a MOT offside only handbrake efficiency not sufficient, otherwise fully working – I don’t think it would take much to get these refurbish. Handbrake cables both near and off side, one of which is new and the other in good condition. 2 wiper arms one of which is new. H&R German made alloy wheel spacers New suspension springs (I think for front but not sure?) Dellorto carb service parts, Pipercross PX600 backplate with holes cut to size, spare exhaust manifold studs, headlight adjusting kit, Unopened 1 litre mobil1 oil 2 new sets of HT high temperature silicone leads and one used set. 4 new and 8 little used spark plugs, spare engine belts some which are used and some new. New distributor cap and what appears to be a new Lucas distributor (note: this cost only circa £50, so perhaps a bit too cheap to be a genuine Lotus part) – so consider it included ex-gratia. Spare rear wheel 16 inch, odd trims including complete new door trim, brake bleeding kit and anything else shown in the first image. Please note: I will NOT split these items – any buyer must take everything, which I prefer collected as the postage is likely to be £50-£100 o/a weight of brake components and spare wheel. This is why I’ve put a high postage estimate to deter this, but will post if absolutely necessary. The post Stevens Esprit X180 – Garage Clearance appeared first on Click to view item

Points to note: As has happened on several early S1 Evora’s, the leather on the dash has shrunk and split down the middle near the windscreen (I made a temporary cover as a short term solution) The airbag cover on the passenger side has also warped. I looked into getting it replaced whilst I was getting it MOT’d but the replacement part is not currently available from Lotus.

All the fixings and covers are present. Very welcome to come and take a look. It was stored in a warm garage in a padded hard top hood case (available if you want at extra cost).

  22. Posting on behalf of someone else I happened to meet another Lotus owner, John, at the Chepstow Classic 2021. He has an Excel now, but from his Esprit days he has a new, unused air conditioning radiator, for an ’89 Esprit. He’s not online so I said I’d list it for him and put people in touch with him if they’re interested. I’m not sure what he’s after for it, I think he’d just be happy for a pristine rare part to find a use. Do get in touch and I’ll give you his number to speak to him further.

  25. After 4 years ownership I’ve decided to sell my normally aspirated 1988 Stevens X180 Esprit. This is an extremely stylish classic which has been a great car to drive, always attracting attention wherever it goes and with the potential to appreciate in value. I went looking for an Esprit having previously owned an 1984 Lotus Excel which shares the same high compression engine. This has been my fair weather weekend car averaging approximately 1,000 miles per year for my usage, always garaged and well pampered but now replaced with a convertible. Not being familiar with Esprits, when I purchased the car I took it to my nearby Lotus specialist (Rapid Mechanical Services Ltd, Romford) to have them assess both the good and bad. They noticed a problem with the handbrake efficiency but other than this, I was very pleased to be advised that all the ‘big jobs’ had been done and that my purchase was a sound one. These items included: Protech Adjustable shock/coilovers (13 settings) New front Rads/Fans Replaced Polyurethane bushes Both fuel tanks replaced with aluminium units Steering rack replaced Stainless steel twin pipe exhaust system Auxiliary and timing belt just done New header tank New fuel Pipes Wheels refurbished All leather interior The handbrake issue was addressed immediately, purchasing (circa £1,000) and having fitted the PNM upgraded Brembo Calipers, Discs, Pads kit as used on the Lotus Elise (see photo). It was also missing the sunroof leather bag and wind-deflector which I purchased separately for £250 and this of course stays with the car. The car has been a pleasure to maintain and service with only a few odd jobs completed by specialists when needed. It runs cool and even on the hottest of days this year stuck in traffic it stays within the low-mid 80 degrees. The previous owner fitted a battery cut-off switch which has allowed me to leave the car for long periods without any restart probelms. Recently completed. Dellorto DHLA45 twin carb service kit applied tuned and balanced Oil and Filter changed (Millers fully synthetic) Both cam gaskets replaced from SJS New HT Leads and Plugs Fuel Filter Hunter Wheel Alignment Radio with USB connection for phone (previous Alpine unit included) Redex regularly added to fuel The odometer was replaced some 15-20k miles after an engine rebuild according to the previous owner making the true mileage approx 45k – I’ve not seeked to validate this.Please do not expect perfection here as this car is 33+ years old. However, as you can see from the photos, the overall presence of the car is not diminished by any such imperfections which I’ve already allowed for in my price expectation. I’m an enthusiast and not an expert but will endeavour to answer any questions you should ask. I would prefer/expect serious buyers to have viewed in person first or to have contacted me for more pictures/information that I will try and provide. Hopefully this car will pass on to a like-minded UK enthusiast which is why I’ve posted my ad here first. The car will also be advertised soon on Ebay/Pistonheads – Please send me an email if you are interested: [email protected] Thanks for looking.
