2001 Lotus Esprit V8 plus spare Lotus V8 engine/transaxle/ECU

$55,000 for car and spare engine/trans/ECU all together
$45,000 for car alone

I have decided to put my beloved V8 Esprit up for sale. The car has only 17,xxx miles on it, and has recently undergone a comprehensive overhaul with a well-known Lotus specialist shop in the northeast. Exterior color is Arctic Silver over Black interior. Interior is in very good condition, with just some of the usual wear on the left side edge of the drivers seat (no rips), with brand new custom footwell mats with Lotus logo in silver on black. Boot carpet is original and in good condition, with just a couple of small spots of wear.

Some of few extra modifications made to the car include:

• Updated rear taillight cluster to 2002+ MY spec (round taillights)
• Elise steering wheel with custom hub
• High-torque ECU
• Custom Magnaflow rear exhaust (great exhaust note)
• New clear stone chip shield on front bumper, bonnet leading edge, wheel arch edges
• Engine serviced, including new blue JAE timing belts
• New fuel tank sender

The Esprit also comes with these hard-to-find accessories:

• Both body-color composite and tinted glass sunroofs, with storage bag and wind deflector
• Tool kit
• Correct spare wheel and lug nuts/wrench/jack kit
• V8 owners manual
• Custom-made fitted car cover for indoor storage

In the course of ownership I also acquired a complete spare engine/transaxle/ECU. This has also recently been given a complete overhaul by the same Lotus specialist shop. The transaxle is the standard factory unit and the ECU is also a high-torque version. I had planned to keep this set-up for spares, and would prefer to sell the car and spare drivetrain as one complete set. I have discounted the asking price for a combined sale. Please don't PM me about buying the spare drivetrain separately - I would prefer to find a buyer for the full package. If I sell the car without it, I will readvertise the complete spare drivetrain up here. I also have a spare complete fusebox with spare fuses/relays etc. And I have the original V8 steering wheel.

Due to travel and work demands I have not been able to drive the car very much lately, and that is one reason I am putting it up for sale. Having said that, like most sellers on here I am reluctant to part with a car that I have spent so much time and effort on to get the way I wanted. This is not a forced sale kind of situation. The car runs and drives very nicely, and has had some other work on it in the past couple of years to bring its service up to date. Full details and expert overview of the car can be provided by the Lotus specialist that has been working on the car and where it is currently being stored. Video of the engine start up and running can also be provided upon request. The car was most recently registered in NY state, passed NY safety check etc. It is currently off the road and not plated. Clear title with no accidents. I am based in Canada and the car is in NY state. For potential buyers in Canada, I can assist with import into Canada and transport to Toronto/eastern Ontario/Montreal/Ottawa/west Quebec.

I welcome inspection of the car by any interested party, and as mentioned a comprehensive account can also be provided by the Lotus master tech that has worked on the car for the past few years. I have attached a few pics. Please PM me with any questions and thanks for looking. :UK:

You should be able to PM once you post a few times, but I passed along a message for you. :)

Hey JP,

Maybe we should do a package deal! You get the engine and I'll get the car! ;-)

Anyone know if this ever sold, please? I don't seem to see any indication here. Thanks.

Bump. Back up for sale. Was strung along all summer by a potential buyer who has now gone dark. Will entertain offers for the engine/drivetrain alone. Car will be in US only until end of month.

Beautiful car, looks fantastic! Sorry to hear the car will only be in the US until the end of the month. I'm looking to buy a V8 in the NE in Oct/Nov. time frame.

Good luck with the sale!

ESPREE 09-17-2017 05:02 AM

Sorry to hear about the first potential buyer, but I'm sure it will sell.

Here's a quick video of it that was shot over the summer:

Thanks again for this terrific video, Kent! It really shows the car off nicely and the audio captures that nice bark from the exhaust.
