The Esprit Turbo immediately became a car appreciated by enthusiasts for its exceptional chassis and handling qualities, which gave it great performance envied by its competitors of the time, such as Ferrari and Porsche, despite the fact that Lotus used engines with lower displacement and a lower number of cylinders.

The very rare car we are offering here was made in only 25 units and identified as Esprit “High Wing” because of its rear spoiler that connects up to the pillar, unlike the “normal” Esprit model in which the wing is fixed only to the rear hatch.

11 previous owners, including some dealers and collectors.
Black leather interior.
4 cylinders.

Supplied with ASI (historic vehicle register) registration and maintenance history.
