1986 Esprit Turbo

Recommended Posts

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.
