any other lotus/other seats fit an Esprit

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any success fitting non esprit seats into a esprit. Some of Evora leather seats look v nice?  I have bucket and although hug me I don't think they would be comfortable of long journeys.

For some reason , a previous owner of my s2 had fitted seats from what I think is an mx5 mk1 although im not 100 percent certain,  id love to fit a pair of originals back in if I could obtain some

As far as I know, someone in the US fit Elise seats into an esprit by changing the seat rails / bolting them directly to the floor - this was to increase headroom for a taller driver.

The Esprit width is a lot narrower than what is typical, hence the difficulties in finding alternate seats that fit.

 

I know of at least two US owners that have fitted Elise seats. One is Travis @Vulcan Grey

Your V8 floor is wider than the pre '95 X180/S4 floor, so you may have more choice than you think. XJS maybe? Similar set up to the Esprit, high wide tunnel, sill mounted handbrake, narrow but extremely comfortable seats.

Original ones? I could be interested if you ever sell them (depending on price and leather colour as it would be a shame to spoil nice seats, I would need a pair of magnolia ones)

I’m surprised no one has tried to fit Evora seats
