Basic Lotus Info:
1998 Lotus Esprit V8 twin turbo. Fully loaded. If you are not familiar with the Lotus Esprit V8 you can check up the details on-line. As a quick note here this is an extremely exotic British sports or “super” car that can do nearly 180MPH and 0-60 in 4.4 seconds and cost $88,000 in 1998. It has Lotus’ 350HP twin turbo V8 that can be chipped far beyond this if you dare and this is all packaged in the famous Lotus chassis known for its handling. Dating back to 1948 Lotus Cars a British manufacturer of sports and racing cars based at Hethel, Norfolk, England. The company designs and builds race and production automobiles of light weight and high handling characteristics. The Lotus Esprit was a sports car built by Lotus in the United Kingdom from 1976 to 2004. The silver Ital-design concept that eventually became the Esprit was unveiled at the Turin Motor Show in 1972, and was a development of a stretched Lotus Europa chassis. It was among the first of designer Giorgetto Giugiaro's polygonal "folded paper" designs. Originally, the name Kiwi was proposed, but in keeping with the 'E...' naming format of Lotus tradition, the name became Esprit.

Mechanical Info:
It is a V8 twin turbo with a 5 speed transmission. I have recently had a brand new clutch installed also has new struts all the way around, all new body bushings. There are only 39,000 miles on the car. (RWD) rear wheel drive train. Never seen snow stored in a heated garage during winter. Have always taken excellent care of this vehicle including regular maintenance. The owner is also works at the largest custom car shop in the Midwest. If you would like more information on the shop you can check us out on the web at 313 Motoring Noyz and Toyz Car customizing Detroit If you have any questions please feel free to send me a email at [email protected] For an additional $5500 we can convert this 1998 lotus to look identical to the 2002 and up models. The only difference between them is the rear end. So if you want that 2002 and up Lotus look without the 2002 and up Lotus price here is your chance.

Red exterior the paint still looks new. Has factory spoiler and Oz rims. Everything on this car looks great and will turn heads. Lotus has described the Esprit’s composite body as a “complex mix of sharp edges and subtle curves.” Low-slung wedge-shaped styling was penned by Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. A front valance with “winglets” sits ahead of the front wheel arches. A zinc-clad steel backbone chassis is used, and dual self-balancing fuel tanks are installed. Measuring 172 inches long overall on a 96-inch wheelbase, the Esprit V8 is a little shorter than the Ferrari 360 Modena. The tires are 17 inches in diameter in the front and 18 inches at the rear and enclose six-spoke alloy wheels. Lotus uses a fully independent suspension for the Esprit V8.

Tan leather interior. Fully loaded. Clean inside and out. Painted some of the interior pieces to red to match the outside of the car you can view them in the pictures. Carpets, seats, dash everything is in great condition.
