The Lotus Esprit X180 Turbo was the result of Lotus' desire to reinvigorate the Esprit range towards the end of the 1980s. The car was designed by Peter Stevens who gave the car a more contemporary look for the late 80s. This particular example is one of just 252 cars made making it something of a rarity. This car has led quite a pampered life and comes with a full service book, the latest of which was undertaken in June of this year. The last service also importantly included replacement of the cambelt and tensioners.

Looking back in the history file, the car was subject to a large amount of restoration work in 2001/02 which included the engine being removed and fully stripped down. A new gearbox was fitted in 2002 and the radiator re-cored, The carbs were also stripped down and rebuilt at this time. There are several invoices on file to support the stamped up service book over the years.

Fast forward to 2017 and along with a major service the car has been treated to a full body re-spray which leaves it looking fresh and ready for its next custodian.

On the road the car drives as you would expect and pulls well and runs cleanly. The interior of the car is in good general order with no rips or tears in the upholstery. The carpets are showing their age but are perfectly presentable.

The engine bay is clean and nicely detailed. Overall this is a great looking car that if looked after should provide its next owner with lots of fun motoring years ahead. Given the rarity of this model and the price trajectory of the earlier Esprit models it seems fair to assume there is going to be plenty of long term capital appreciation potential in this car.
