Do you mean this?

"Lotus Turbo ESPRIT Giugiaro 1986, origen nacional, en muy buen estado. Poças unidades producidas, exótico y exclusivo. Bate en aceleración y paso por curva a todos los deportivos de su Época. "

Take your pick

Bing Translator: "Lotus Turbo ESPRIT Giugiaro 1986, national origin, in very good condition. Poças units produced, exotic and exclusive. Whisk in acceleration and passing through curve to all sports of his time."

Google: "Lotus Turbo Esprit 1986 Giugiaro, national origin, in very good condition. Poças produced, exotic and exclusive units. Bate acceleration and cornering all the sports of his time."

I prefer the "Whisk in acceleration and passing through curve to all sports of his time"

 

Damn, this doesn't fit completely into my profile :)

I was just trying to help. Not finger pointing. :-)

You can actually switch all these sort of car-sale sites to English or whatever is your mother tongue. It does not translate the description but almost everything else. Very useful when you live in a small country and you need to look around all over the place. :-)

Spanish is my mother tongue... Basically it says that very few were produced and that it beats all other sport cars from its time in acceleration and in the twisties. :-)

At that price I would also want it to be able to whisk me up a cake!  just saying.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

They could have taken some better pictures, the front is covered in stone chips! 

I would hate to think what will happen when the ECU fails? can you get replacements? or would it become an expensive ornament? 

Do you expect me to talk........ No Mr Bond I expect you to die!

It's the same car I posted a few months ago when we were doing the joke asking price thread. It has been for sale there for as long as anyone can remember, but the asking price has doubled in the past couple of months. I sold my much lower mileage (8000) and better condition Left hooker for £32000 last year. There wasn't much interest even at a third of this asking price. They look like they want to keep it forever!

This is not the first higher priced Lotus from Italy........I have seen quite a number before the last months....(Italy and Spain).

Seems to me that for the moment in Italy Lotus is more appreciated than in the UK.........:blush:

@ Berrykearly,

Obviously Lotus offers them that magic / special thing their own cars do not have (any more).......what?.......relative exclusivity of Lotus versus Ferrari? .......more affordable and better reliability?......I do not know their reason(s)..........

It's bad enough looking at the terrible 02 wing, let along the wheels!

'98 wing Mark. Barry has one of those as well. In the same colour. Yes, I know, awful...

No.  I've got to be honest, generally wings are for Peter Stringfellow's cars and birds (the flying type).

The best Ferrari's generally don't having wings so why does a Lotus need one?  Imagine this beautiful BB with a wing:
