1985 Lotus Esprit Turbo

An immaculate Pearlescent white Esprit with huge history.


Our Esprit has a three inch folder of invoices from over the years, but mainly from 2006 onwards while a Mr Chapman owned the car – way too much work to list here. Recent work includes £2000 spent at UK Sportscars including a new steering rack, steering knuckles, clutch slave cylinder and hoses plus a full service including a brake master cylinder in 2016. This year Max 500 in Guildford have rebuilt the carbs, changed the cambelt and tensioners, a full service including alternator belt, water pump belt, A/C belt, cam cover gaskets, gearbox oil and anything else that needed attending to. The speedo reads 1,042 miles but we believe the mileage is around 100,000. Do not be put off by these miles, you are buying this car on condition and history, which will be hard to beat! We have a stack of MOT certificates and the current test expires on November 2020 with no advisories.

Our example has a Lotus Certificate of Provenance and tells us that ours is one of 23 pearlescent white cars made and one of 6 with full blue leather. Options include the paint, air conditioning (blowing cold), glass roof, full leather trim and radio provision. There is a modern radio in the car but it also comes with a period Blaupunkt Bremen SOR45.


Beautiful pearlescent white paint with no bubbles or cracks, perfect alloys with no marks at all, excellent glass, Pirelli tyres all round (new on the front), very clean under the bonnet and boot areas and the pop-up lights work well. We have a full set of keys and a huge history file and a clear Experian car check.
