Successor of the very successful Elan, designed by Giugiaro, the Lotus Esprit was unveiled at the Paris Motorshow in 1975. In its final evolution, the twin-turbo V8 developed a very respectable 350bhp allowing a 280 km/h top speed, along with comfort and outstanding dynamic qualities. The car on offer, manufactured in 2001, took advantage of manufacturer's improvements and comes in a subtle and elegant combination of black with anthracite rims. It remained in the hands of the same owner until 2007, serviced in particular by the Porsche/Lotus dealer at Saint-Etienne, TLA. In 2008, while showing 80,000km, the car's engine was comprehensively refurbished by the garage Dizier in Paris, costing € 18,000. In 2015 FVH Motors (Belgium) executed a comprehensive restoration of the gearbox, as well as a thorough overhaul of the car for almost € 10,000. With 96,500 km on the odometer, a careful maintenance, accompanied by an extensive invoices file, this car which spent all its life in France is in superb original condition and will be delivered with its manuals.
Auction Estimate: € 45 000/ 55 000
