Lotus Esprit Turbo Dry Sump in Essex Blue

Recommended Posts

LotusRescue have been asked to market a rather nice Lotus Esprit Dry Sump in Essex Blue color’s due to owner’s change in circumstances.
Here are some of the details of what has just been completed.
New Turbo and Waste gate.
Two new fuel tanks.
New thru chassis coolant pipes,
New oiler cooler
New stainless steel clutch hose installed.
New clutch assembly.
New ignition module and ignition set up.
New alternator.
New high torque starter motor.
New poly bush gearbox mounts.
New rubber engine mounts.
New coolant hoses.
New gear linkage bushes.
Complete engine rebuild to include liners, pistons, rings, shells, oil seals and gaskets, valve stem seals. In fact everything a newly built engine would have.
Interior re-trim in original Champaigne to include a new windscreen.
Front and rear brakes rebuilt including calipers and new discs.
Probably loads I have missed but a full breakdown of works and invoices as proof are available.
To date this car has cost just over £30,000 and the owner is looking to recoup his costs. If a further 5/6k was to be spent on paint then this car would be one of the best out there.
There is a huge history file with the car which shows very low ownership and an original letter from the first owner when the order was placed at the factory for the car. It makes interesting reading.
Plus loads of history on the car from Andy Graham, Lotus Archivist, and the previous owner.
She is not officially an Essex dry sump but must be one of the closest original cars there is out there, even the chassis numbers are very close to the Essex run.
Obviously huge investment potential as we all know pries are rocketing.
Priced at £34,000 but negotiable.
Photographs to follow.
Any interest please PM me.
