Esprit SE


Recommended Posts

1990 Lotus Esprit SE current owner for seven years, good condition, lots of recent history and invoices. Gearbox crunch from 1st to 2nd. Would make a good winter project. Paintwork, wheels and tyres all in good condition. MOT until July 2016.

Have a new GT3 gearbox and think the gear ratios and probably box are the same - bought in error a few years ago as a replacement for a V8 gearbox but later found out these are different.

Thanks Derek - This box is the later type UN1 - 028 version

Should make the car quicker (possibly)  although power output rating I beleive was slightly less for this G/box @ 240 BHP and not 260 odd as per the original car. Not sure if the Lotus calculated final drive ratio was influenced by the change of wheel diameter and tyre profile though ?? as those two cars differed in that respect ...apparently.

Looks like a very good deal! Love the red color, happy for you but also a bit sad I didn't see it sooner myself...

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Gearbox didn't crunch at all in the 20 minutes I had in the car, no doubt it will come back but it drove like a champ.  There are other issues to take care of but I'm well happy with it.  Zoomed past one group of pedestrians who's jaws instantly hit the pavement when they saw it, quite different from driving my BMW 320 diesel haha.

Are you after a second SE or is it a different colour?
