The Esprit is, to date, Lotus’ longest running model, serving in various forms from 1976 through 2004. The design goes back even further as Lotus contracted with Giorgetto Giugiaro to pen the car back in 1971, and it was shown in prototype form at the 1972 Salone dell’Automobile di Torino.this 1990 Esprit Turbo is however, the one you want. This example represents the X180 model, with styling massaged and updated by Lotus designer, Peter Stevens who would later go on to design the McLaren F1. Beneath that lies a pretty extensive re-engineering that included more space for the interior and a stiffer body made possible by a new production method and source materials. The engine is a 4 cylinder, 215 horsepower edition of the aforementioned 907 now denoted 910 and sports Bosch fuel injection. This particular car is offered with sparce millage of only 15880km and presented in Vulcan Grey metallic over dark grey leather. The car has been well cared for throughout its lifespan and is complete with books. A beautifuly styled and quick sports car to be appreciated.
