1988 Lotus Esprit Commemorative For Sale

In 1987, the Esprit was restyled by British designer Peter Stevens. Stevens, who would later go on to design the McLaren F1, produced a less angular, more rounded Esprit. Giugiaro is said to have liked the new shape, claiming it was perhaps too close to his original design. The exterior changes were accompanied by a redesign of the interior that gave more space to the occupants. The revised Esprit was not given a new "Series" number but is often called by its project code of X180.
Panels for the body were produced using a new process called VARI (Vacuum Assisted Resin Injection). This method, which was patented by Lotus, offered advantages over the previous hand lay-up process. Kevlar reinforcement was added to the roof and sides for roll-over protection. This also increased the Esprit's torsional rigidity by 22%.

This particular example is a limited Commemorative Edition of which only 88 were built. The special pearlescent white exterior and two tone blue and gray interior were common to all 88. The car has just 24k miles and has had 3 owners. It has a clean CARFAX and is truly in mint condition. The motor is the very potent 2.2 liter 4 cylinder turbo charged coupled with a 5 speed manual transmission. The original 15 inch wheels were replaced with the later Esprit V8 alloy wheels. The original wheels to come with the vehicle. The original steering wheel was replaced with a great looking wood wheel and again the original wheel comes with the car. We also have some records, service manual, an original tools. This Esprit looks and drives as new.
