1991 Red Lotus Esprit

Essex, United Kingdom


Lotus Esprit SE TURBO

The Lotus Esprit SE Turbo really is the best of both worlds. The old K-Jetronic fuel injection system was replaced with the new refined Lotus/Delco multi-point fuel injection system which transformed the car. The engine was evolved further and received an air-water-air intercooler known as a Chargecooler which further increased the cars efficiency. This revised and improved engine was known as the Type 910S. The 910S was up to 197 kW (268 PS; 264 hp) with 209 kW (284 PS; 280 hp) available on overboost. The cars 0-60 mph times dropped massively to 4.7 seconds and the top speed was over 160 mph (260 km/h). The 910S engine is the heart of the special equipment (SE) model, which was further improved by changes to the body. Side skirts parallel to the body were added along with big five air ducts in the front air dam and finally a rear wing. These additions meant the cars looks matched its impressive performance.
This Esprit we have for sale here comes with its original Vehicle sales invoice from Kelvedon Motors on the 18th March 1991. The cars original handbook is also included and shows the full-service history and a whole variety of garage receipts from all the work carried out on the car since 1991. Further to this, copies of all the UK V5 documents are present making this Esprit incredibly desirable with such a complete history. An unused original Lotus Toolkit is another time warp gem included in this sale. A CD of the Lotus Cars Service Parts List for MY 1988 onwards can also be found in the cars file.
If this Esprit wasn’t good enough already an aftermarket Larini Stainless Steel exhaust system (standard system included) has been fitted top the car. This system allows the incredible 910S engine to sing in harmony with the flutter from the huge Garrett Turbo. The addition of new EBC GreenStuff brake pads help the car stop as well as it goes! On the other hand, for comfort, the car is fitted with Air Conditioning, Clarion CRX111R stereo and boot mounted 6-CD auto change system, Composite Targa roof panel and a storage bag.
Competitive finance available, and part exchange welcome.
