More about this vehicle

In excellent condition throughout is this spectacular Red Lotus Esprit V8 GT.
One of only 204 V8 GTs built, this car has been recently serviced, new turbo's, new cambelt, new radiator, with 3 large cooling fans, new handbrake cables and a huge history folder and the mileage is reading just over 60,000 miles.

Excellent condition with no absolutely expense spared.

3.5L V8 Twin Turbo putting out 425 bhp and 365 lbft of torque as dyno’d in 2010 (printout in the history folder).

Calypso Red with Black leather interior and air conditioning.

Mileage is just 66,000 miles.

Lotus reconditioned engine with Sport 350 ECU.

GTO uprated close ratio gearbox with Quaife ATB limited slip differential and new turbos at 55,000 miles.

Sports cats, front and rear uprated 320mm Brembo brakes with braided hoses, reconditioned steering rack, uprated radiator, custom oil catch tank, fully adjustable Gaz suspension with 2 extra pairs of springs giving countless permutations for setting handling balance to suit driving style. Polyurethane bushes all round, Sport 350 front splitter and front anti-roll bar.

This car has been the previous owner’s pride and joy but a move to London meant it was no longer going to be used and enjoyed.

The car has recently had over £10,000 spent on everything from new handbrake cables, new brake pipes, Flywheel, engine out service, new twin plate clutch, turbo coolant hoses, oil cooler, timing belt and tensioners, water pump, head gasket, new cylinder head bolts, rebuilt turbo’s and mode.

The car has had some paintwork in the past and the car now presents very well with only a few light stone chips to be expected.


Not many of these come up, and not many in this condition.

For any other questions or enquiries please don’t hesitate to ask.
