The dash is strange, it says the year built is 78. Fieros weren't around then. I think this may be a 78 esprit that someone tried to make look life an s3 on the outside and made a custom dash on the inside. The left hand e-brake seems very lotus original.
Whatever it is, it looks like alot of work for the next owner!

It was (is)an S1 Esprit and it has a genuine Lotus Esprit S1 vin:77120556H.

Looks like he moulded in S3 Esprit bumpers,and put an Turbo Esprit hatch and ground effects on it, the tailights look like 3rd gen Firebird ones as do the side mirrors and rear wing.

The dash gauges are actually the original S1 Veglia ones that Lotus only used on the first series of Esprits, but it has a GM saginaw steering column and Grant GT steering wheel.

The rims are ARE/Eagle/Prime Hammers.

S1 Esprits were once worth next to nothing, it would be at least $25,000 car now If they had kept the tartan interior and the rest of the original parts.

Looking at it now its worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it, probably not much.

Shame, its probably to far gone to economically restore back to stock.
