The Lotus Esprit has stood as a iconic super car since it's introduction in 1977. Norfolk's supercar received several enhancements over the years and became the objects of desire for millions of enthusiasts with screen time in such classics as the James Bond Series, Basic Instinct and Pretty Woman. 1988 brought a major redesign of the icon by legendary automotive stylist Peter Stevens. The new design smoothed and modernized the original Giorgetto Giugiaro shape from the early seventies while retaining it's aggressive stance and overall character.

This beautiful 1989 example is finished in iconic white over tan leather hides. Featuring the SE rear wing and removable solid roof panel, the car is motivated by the 910 series 2.2L 4 cylinder turbo engine capable of motivating the Lotus to speeds in excess of 150mph when new. The engine is matched to a 5 speed manual transmission. A California car, this example has 64,XXX miles on the odometer. New Alpine CD radio has been installed with iPod connectivity. The car also comes with a spare set of wheels and tires, service manuals and car cover.

The clear coat, while still in very good over al condition, is starting to exhibit the classic "spider cracking" that is typical for this model. The cracking is concentrated on the bumpers and hood. Driver seat shows some wear (see pictures). Passenger seat is perfect.

The last owner had all repairs done by Schnieder Autohaus in Santa Barbara. Repair history from last owner is available. Major repair work recently completed includes; fuel tanks replaced due to car not be driven, engine controller replaced, AC repair, catalyic converter and brakes. Last compression test was excellent. The car has not been tracked or auto crossed.

This is a very rare opportunity to obtain what is easily one of the most sought after models in Lotus's illustrious history. British Racing Group is honored to offer this exquisite vehicle to a new owner for only $17,500 USD (reduced). Don't allow this once in a lifetime opportunity to slip away.
