1982 Lotus Esprit Turbo

Recommended Posts

Here is my Lotus Esprit for sale. It’s a 1982 Turbo with 75000 miles on the clock. The MOTs I have would suggest the mileage is correct. I have owned it since 2011.


This car is currently SORN and has no MOT, however it runs and drives. I intended to do a few jobs to it and get it back on the road, but have decided to sell as is. I last drove it in April 2019. I was going to replace the carpets, cambelt and service it but am just not getting around to it so I have to realise it’s time to sell.

This car is not mint, but is in good useable condition.

In 2013/14 It was subject to a refresh and engine rebuild which included the following replacement items.



Water Pump


Manifold adaptor

Poly Bushes

Engine and Gearbox mounts



Re-Built Carbs

Re-furbished fuel tanks


When the rebuild was finished the car was set up on a rolling road and it showed just under 200hp @ 5500rpm, not bad for an old car! The data sheet will be included in the sale.


There was also many other bits and bobs done i.e replacement pipes etc at the same time. Since this work was done the car has covered approx 10000 miles.


The car has also had PNM Wilwood front brakes and the PNM rear brake upgrade kit fitted. The original brakes will be included in the sale if you want to revert the car back to original.


I have loads receipts for all of the above, along with lots of receipts that came with the car including a sale invoice from Paul Mattys from 1990 and the original service book with stamps up to 47000 miles, loads of old MOT’s and Tax discs


This car is pretty original all around and has not really been messed around with over the years, I am pretty sure it’s the original radio too.


This car really turns heads. You get admiring conversations at petrol stations and people filming you as they go past on motorways! An absolute design classic inside and out.
