![CDATA[Built between 1976 and 2004, the Lotus Esprit was unveiled in 1972 as a concept car and was a development of a stretched Lotus Europa chassis. It was among the first of designer Giorgetto Giugiaro's polygonal 'folded paper' designs. Originally, the name Kiwi was proposed but, in keeping with the Lotus tradition of having all car model names start with the letter 'E', the name became Esprit. Introduced in April 1981, the Turbo Esprit and Series III Esprit marked a necessary consolidation; both new models had a common chassis. The SIII continued to use the 2.2 litre, type 912 engine, whilst the Turbo Esprit reverted to a less complex wet-sump lubrication system, retaining the power and torque outputs of its dry-sump predecessor. The interior for both cars was revised and featured new trim; combined with changes to the body moulds this resulted in more headroom and an enlarged footwell. Externally, the Turbo Esprit retained the full aerodynamic body kit of the Essex cars and featured prominent 'Turbo Esprit' decals on the nose and sides. Originally registered on 24th November 1986 this Lotus has been owned by the current vendor for the last 26 years. The engine was rebuilt five years ago and runs exceedingly well; this is a very good example mechanically and cosmetically. The red paintwork is unmarked as is the matching tan leather interior, the cockpit area of this Esprit Turbo is a thing of beauty with great ergonomics. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate and a comprehensive history folder, it is important these Lotuss are well looked after and this one certainly has been. To drive an Esprit Turbo is a great experience; the 2174cc engine offers brisk performance coupled with good road holding guarantees a fun drive.]]
