1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE Found in New Jersey

Posted on 0 6

1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE


Spotted in New Jersey is a 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE for $24,900 USD.   This is my favorite color combination of white with tan leather interior.  The seller states the car was just serviced and is a nice driver.  It has 44,000 original miles.   The driver seat is showing more wear and tear as expected.  The passenger seat looks like it had very little use.  Overall the interior looks good or its age.   The Peter Stevens body style produced from 1987 to 1993  seem to be creeping up in price these days.   Recently a red 1989 Turbo SE sold for $29,700 USD.

1978 Lotus Esprit Champion Edition


Spotted in Miami is a 1978 Lotus Esprit Champion Edition  for $20,000 USD.   This is 1 of only 99 made in the US. Car has been in storage for over 20 years, Engine and transmission are functional, the seller tuned and started her up about a year ago, took her around the block…not bad for 20 year stored car!  The car is mostly complete, all glass is intact, interior is there, wheels are flawless (in primer), the body was repaired and primed several years ago when the seller began a full concourse restoration on her but with way too many projects going on at the moment, we can’t move forward on this one any longer.  The seller is ready to sell and is motivated.

1974 Jensen Interceptor

Found in Los Feliz, California is a 1974 Jensen Interceptor for $13,000 USD. This car requires a new paint job but the seller states it only has 80,000 original miles. The car does not run due to a faulty wire harness. I was able to find a new wire hardness for sale for $575. Lets hope that is all it needs to be drivable.  The Jensen Interceptor is a Grand touring car which was hand-built at the Kelvin Way Factory in West Bromwich, near

1979 Maserati Merak SS with Bora Dash


Spotted in Maryland is a 1979 Maserati Merak SS with Bora Dash for $35,000 USD.   The seller states there were only 970 Merak SS examples built with only 314 that came with the Bora style dashboard.  The 1980s dealer invoice shows it was purchased for $17,325.  The car is currently not running.  It will need a full restoration but I think this car would be fun to restore.  The seller also confirm that the tool kit is included and the undercarriage is in good shape.  The body however will need some work. Notice the rust on the front and rear panels.

1 of 3 Radical RXC3


Spotted in Pasadena is 1 of 3 Radical RXC3 for $169,000 USD.  This is a British closed cock pit road legal car that debuted at the 2013 Autosport International Show in the UK.  Completely homologated for California roads and a blast to drive in the canyons – nothing can keep up with this thing.
