We are very proud to offer to you this very rare opportunity in securing this 1 of the only a handful delivered new to Australia 1996 Lotus Esprit S4S Turbo Coupe finished in striking Black coachwork with perfect factory 2 tone Parchment with Black full leather cockpit and has the 2.2L 4 cylinder Garret Turbo engine mated with the traditional 5-speed manual gearbox. This iconic 90\'s Supercar designed by Julian Thomson is very rare to see on today\'s roads and with her classic looks and absolute head-turning appeal this special Lotus was the actual 1996 Australian Motor Show Exhibition car plus was the Alpine"Car Audio Show car included with its original stereo/amps/speakers as was displayed at the show in 1996/97.
With only 3 custodians from being delivered new by Barbagello\'s WA Lotus dealer in July 1996 and from then a very low 95,300 klms from, new she comes complete with ALL her original service history/wallets/keys/booklets/service invoices & receipts, all documented and complete with the sale for your peace of mind. This Lotus Esprit S4S really is raw and real to drive and the analog feel is something sadly not felt today, she is really a rare sight and the rarity makes her suit any 90\'s super-car collection globally or any astute "Young Timer" car collector for future desirability.
With such low volume numbers built globally, a total of 367 and so few left in Australia ( believed to be less than 8) the value this amazing super-car represents is ridiculous when you think about and compare it to other exotics, she looks like half a million dollars driving or sitting still.
