1979 Lotus Esprit S2 Restoration Project SOLD via LEW
This car car requires a full repaint and recommissioning the interior is not to bad but does require tidying here and there. The last owner started to do some of the work but due to ill health could not carry on with the restoration . The engine turns over freely but due to the state of the cam belt I will not run it . Paperwork includes lots of invoices and old MOT certificates, the car has done just over 80,000 miles. I will also include a free genuine Lotus Esprit S1/S2 workshop manual to get you on your way with this great little project.

1986 Esprit S3
A beautiful and rare example of Lotus Esprit S3 styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro, RHD that comes in Silver metallic. The engine is in a very nice condition, looks almost like new and the car is suitable even for daily use. 60,000 miles. The paint still has its shine and a great advantage is the panorama detachable roof, especially during the Summer. The interior, however, has some signs of wear and tear and to make this a perfect car, I suggest it be redone. S3 are almost sold out on the internet and there are very few examples left. The price of this car shoots up, especially the models with detachable glass roof are increasingly rare. £17,000

The terrific V8 has a Holley carburettor and provides full power. The sound and the driving experience are unique. Its mileage is only 4845 miles (approx. 7800km). It has a beautiful patina and the interior is very well maintained. The top is still in good condition. All further details are welcome to be requested by phone or email.

1981 Lotus Essex Turbo Esprit (LHD) SOLD via LEW
This is a very famous car vin number 10307 which is one of the three cars built the same time as the Essex cars and sent to Jim Loose, a dealer in the USA and is identical to an Essex Esprit . When Jim Loose got hold of these cars he repainted the other two Essex Blue [this car 10307 was already originally Essex blue] and he added all the Essex livery. So Lotus cars will not recognise this car as an Essex car although vin number 10306 and 10308 are recognised there were only roughly 12 LHD Essex Esprits ever made. This is identical to an Essex car in every way it even has Essex cam covers fitted to the engine. I imported this car from America earlier this year and underneath is in excellent condition as it spent most of its life in California . The interior is also very good. The paintwork is okay but is showing some age related marks. I have the original Essex Lotus owners handbook with the car and an Auto check HPI report plus some invoices of work we have done to the car to re-commission it including a full service with all belts etc new rear silencer plus brakes etc. The speedometer is showing just over 10,000 miles which I believe to be true although I can not confirm this as I have no stamps in the book or old receipts. But going by the condition of the car I would say this is correct . The car is also missing the front wing decals which I have. Trade

1980 Lotus Esprit S2
Where do I start with this, I have forgotten so much of what I have done, it has been a stop start project the last 4 or 5 years. Some of the story can be read on and then go into forums and then Lotus and then "E Bay moment what have I bought". Only selling as we are moving house and I need to sell some of my "Toys", see my other listings. Truly spent far more than I will sell this for. Car runs, drives stops etc with no major issues but does still requires the engine bay trimming sorting and the seats could do with retrimming. The heater blower is noisy. The handbrake needs sorting but was working. I have hardly used it and even then only on trade plates. Not ever taxed it. I have not driven it since last summer so may have some winter gremmlings, it has been dry stored, the MOT runs out in August. I believe it to be an S2 with an S3 chassis, the previous owner had it 9 years and toured Europe in it. BBS wheels with nearly new tyres. Front 195-60-15 rears 235-60-15, resprayed in original colour.These are some of the parts Purchased from Lotus Specialist S J Sports cars. New brakes, new 4 into 1 exhaust manifold, clutch slave Cyl, EVERY rubber hose, waist trim, Engine mount, ALL belts timming etc New belt tensioner, water pump, 3 piece clutch, Braided clutch pipe, steering rack, New battery, headlining and sun visors recovered. Brake caliper (At least one poss more) Turbo side skirts and bumper, New carpets, Carb overhaul kit and new gaskets etc, Handbrake cable. Gear linkage bushes, Alternator, starter motor, windscreen and Chrome surround. Wiper blade, headlamps, gear lever and lots more. View or collect from EN9 2RY £7,500

As the internet gets bigger, more people are using it to rip people off. This site as been targeted by some low lifes who are just trying to steal from you. The most important thing is to make sure any transaction is real. Please check all bankers drafts with the issuing bank as an old scam is the fake ones are cleared by your bank, you release the car and then it's found and the funds are withdrawn. Do not except any over payments via bankers drafts or cheques, as this is part of the same scam. We have also heard of a buyer in Northern Ireland who is making a unrealistic demands on sellers and wasting their time. We don't advise you deal with this man. Please be careful and feel free to contact us if you have any concerns about a buyer for advice.

Western Union Please DO NOT use Western Union to transfer any money

If the car is still for sale, then the advert will remain. If it's removed and the advertiser still wants to sell the Esprit, then they'll be a £5 republish fee, so make sure you tell us before the years up.   urban fashion online shop
