Pearl White 1988 Lotus Esprit Turbo Anniversary Edition #57 of 88 SoCal ENDS SUNDAY!

Lotus : Esprit Turbo Coupe 2-Door in Lotus | eBay Motors
This 1988 Lotus Esprit Turbo is a limited anniversary edition with only 88 cars produced. This is #57 of 88. My car was featured in the May 2012 issue of Forza Magazine (for Ferrari enthusiasts) and was compared head to head with the 1988 Ferrari 328 on a cloudy day in Malibu. A link to the blog reference is below and back copies of the issue are available.

This Lotus features a beautiful pearl white body, with an ice blue interior accented by suede and navy panels, pearl white wheels and mirrors, and a strut mounted rear spoiler. Its fast and handles like only a Lotus can.

The body is quite nice with some clear coat peeling on the back deck. There is also some damage to the rear lower spoiler as shown in the pictures. The interior is worn in spots. The mechanical details have been attended to. Both fuel pumps, both widow motors, alternator, starter, air conditioning compressor and dryer, fuel injectors, throttle cable, clutch master cylinder, distributor and both fuel tanks have been replaced. The timing belt was recently replaced as well. The front rotors have been replaced with vented rotors and the clutch hydraulic line replaced with a braided stainless model. The standard air filter has been replaced with a K&N high performance filter. Stock headlights have been replaced with Hella quartz headlights with 90w blue bulbs. An Eclipse power amp enhances the original Sony system with McIntosh speakers, front and rear. Michelin Pilot Exaltos all around.

The clutch is slipping, but other than that, it runs like a charm. The speedometer/odometer is broken and the mileage is unknown. The odometer reads 27004 miles. The air needs a recharge and I've misplaced the passenger window switch. The CD changer has been removed in place of a plug for a music player (iphone, etc...) All repairs were executed at Viking Motorsports.
