You are looking at a time capsule from the Rad 80’s! This Lotus Esprit has a touch over 15K original miles and it shows! Running 0-60 in under 6 seconds, thundering down the road with a top speed of 155mph, she is a true Exotic of the 80’s! The Paint is flawless, and she has recently been serviced. In 1988 they made a total of 88 (YUP! same as the year date) special edition units and this is # 3! Please take a moment to view the video and picture yourself driving down the beach in this beauty.


The interior shows very well as it is a time capsule. The only defect is the wood accent on the dash shows minor cracking from age. All the windows work as they should along with all the locks and switches. The interior is comfortable and is sporting the limited edition interior blue colors. All gauges work as they should, and the radio sounds great. This is a car you can jump in and comfortably cruise down the road. The Baby blue pigskin leather is in excellent shape with no rips or tears. The carpet shows very well. The A/C blows cool and works as it should.


The Pearl Paint shows excellent with no major imperfections, all the lights operate as they should and a replacement OE set of fog lights have been installed since the photos have been taken. The body is straight with no scratches. The tires have 95% tread left and the wheels have Zero curb rash. This may be the nicest Lotus Esprit in existence. Personally, we cannot find any flaws.


The type 910 16 valve DOHC turbocharged motor runs excellent. We recently did a full check up on her vitals. The motor builds boost as it should and pulls excellent. The transmission shifts excellent with no pop out or funny play. The clutch engages low and has plenty of grip. An aftermarket intercooler has been added for cooling efficiency. The 4 wheel disk brakes are in excellent condition and stop this car on a dime. She has a brand new battery, alternator, and fresh filters. This is a turn-key exotic from the 80’s, You just jump in and go!
