So here we have rather a special rare midnight blue, left hand drive 1996 Lotus Esprit V8.
This car was first registered in Belgium and is a European spec left hand drive not US spec, so no nasty side marker lights!
The car has very low kms of 12857 kms or 7988 miles and plenty of proof of this low distance travelled, other than the amazing condition!
When I purchased the car, I wanted to give it a full shakedown, so the list of improvements is considerable.
We performed a full C service with cambelts etc.
We then decided to change the clutch, as there was some judder that was in excess of that you should feel with a twin plate clutch that is fitted as standard. Because we found the flywheel showed evidence of the previous owner slipping the clutch, we fitted a brand new factory flywheel. The air conditioning compressor has also been changed and now blows ice cold.
The wheels were the next thing to receive attention so were sent off to be reconditioned, so are now factory fresh.
We fitted a PNM stainless steel centre exhaust and brand new stainless steel catalytic convertors. We removed the old splitter form the rear and fitted the aluminium panel at the rear, but retained the old splitter. All original parts have been retained and go with the car.
To bring security up to date we removed the old outdated alarm that was fitted and fitted a full closure Thatcham approved Toad alarm immobiliser.
The interior is obviously in exceptional condition and the seats are near to new condition. The dark blue deep pile over carpets, and the beige carpets underneath are perfect.
The underside of the car is in excellent condition and we have gone to the expense of removing all of the suspension and powder coating it so it looks like new.
The engine is super strong, operates perfectly and the gearbox is nice and tight.
There are no squeaks or rattles, it drives perfectly.
The roof panel bag is present as is the wind deflector. The factory tool kit is there too.
We have fitted a trickle charger, that comes with the car.
The Esprit cherished plate was bought by me and assigned to the car, this will be removed if the car is sold to a non uk buyer.
The car has just been MOT"d and passed with no advisories.
The V5c registration certificate is in my name.
I also have a certificate of conformity for France so this car can be registered in France in a few days. I can do this for a potential French buyer and you would be the first French keeper.
I am in no hurry to sell this car, so no silly offers please.
I am happy to consider part exchanges of something interesting. Happy to consider cars, boats, bikes etc.
If we agree a deal, I will require an immediate deposit of 1000 pounds. Payment is also possible in euros.
I am happy to store the car, in a dry secure warehouse, for the potential purchasor. Delivery throughout Europe can be arranged, please ask.
Collection must be within two weeks, unless previously agreed.
This car is perfect for a private collection and priced to reflect it"s condition and low kms. Esprit prices are now on the rise, get in quick!
Happy to consider part exchange of anything interesting, at trade value.
Any questions please ask.
