Lotus Esprit Series 1. Painted in Monaco White with its original Wolf Race Wheels, this car was restored 2009. The car was purchased for Danny Bahar the CEO of Lotus to use while designing the new Esprit that never came to light. It has since been maintained regardless of cost. The car benefits from a Lotus replacement galvanized chassis, aluminum fuel tanks and header tank, new fuel lines, Protech aluminium adjustable shock absorbers all round, new gear linkage, rebuilt carburetors, more robust 2.2 turbo engine block (yet still looks like the original), new door beams, new uprated door hinges, new door window motors, new oil cooler and pipes. The gearbox has been rebuilt with all new bearings. It has a full stainless exhaust that sounds great and pops lovely on over run, new wheel bearings, reconditioned headlamp lift motors and new engine mounts. This car has only covered 68k miles. It turns heads, gets smiles and thumbs up everywhere it goes. The car was manufactured in 1978 (326G) and will be tax and MOT free next year. Underneath the car is tidy and well maintained, there are a few blemishes in the paint work but still looks a car to be proud of. The car has an MOT HPI Clear and everything works, itís fantastic to drive and with so very few Series One Espritís surviving donít miss out on this good one.
