Lot No. 734 -
1992 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE 'High Wing'- ex Press Car.
Sold for: £21,780
An iconic Lotus Esprit SE 2.2 Turbo 'High Wing' ...This lovely Esprit was first registered in September 1991 and is a particularly well-known car. One of two original factory press cars, this Calypso Red example was much photographed in period, has appeared in a number of contemporary road tests by motoring magazines. It featured on the cover of 'Performance Car' in November '91 and we believe that it was used by Lotus in their displays at various Motor Shows and Motorfairs at the time.
This sparkling Esprit has covered a mere 59,000 miles and the service records display 9 service stamps with the last at 57,000 miles which included a cambelt change.
Our vendor is a gentleman who has a passion for British Sports Cars, and who has previously owned over 20 Lotus cars during his lifetime and he enthusiastically tells us it that, in his opinion, this car is “the most rewarding Lotus he has ever driven”.
Included in the car's documents file are a valid MoT Certificate until December 2016 and a Lotus “Certificate of Vehicle Provenance”. Sensibly guided, this car represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a really nice example of a rare model with lots of history that has patently been well cared for.
