Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo

 

First registered 2000

 

Engine now produces 600 Horsepower due to:

O-ringed block

Forged pistons

Red Race ECU

High flow roller ball bearing T25/T28 turbos

Custom made intercooler kit

 

Gearbox has been upgraded with single shaft gear with straight cut 1st gear and hardened 2nd gear. Entire gearbox assembly has been cryogenically frozen for hardening and strength.

 

Differential has been upgraded to Quaiffe limited slip diff with higher ratio crown and pinion. Entire diff assembly has also been cryogenically frozen for hardening and strength.

 

Recaro race seats fitted and Momo sports steering wheel.

 

Upgraded, fully adjustable springs and dampers from Germany.

 

Upgraded Willwood brakes - 6 spot front, 4 spot rear.

 

Exhaust is now a straight through unit with 2 small high flow cats.

 

Rear tyres are 315/35/18 to keep the power on the ground. Wheels have been polished to a nickel plate look for effect.

 

Includes 6 stack Panasonic CD unit with Kenwood amp. Total of 8 speakers now operate within the cabin.

 

It has a removable roof and a full size boot - one of the very few practical supercars around.

 

This car will outrun almost anythign out there. It is quicker to 100 MPH than a Lamborghini Diablo and will eat almost ANY Ferrari!

 

Save hundreds of thousands of dollars over one of these cars that are dime a dozen and buy something truly UNIQUE!

 

Only $119,950 (Plates not included)

Seen this car advertised in current car mags too.  I'd rather put the money toward a nice red 355.

That car has had all the modifications made by Paul McCreery, so you know they are done well.

It's a '96 or '97 build though. By 2000, the Esprit has gone through 2 different changes.

I clicked the fees thingy..

seems a bit rich to charge 6.6% plus another $66, when all other vehicles have a capped sale fee of ~$280

Fee for buying this car could be another ~$1500 or more.

I wonder are they negotiable on fee?

Just seems greedy to me, when they are clearly happy to accept a few hundred bucks on most turnover. Their costs are no more for this car than others.
