1993 Lotus Esprit Turbo For Sale in Houston

1993 Lotus Esprit Turbo

Location: South Houston

Odometer: 43,000 miles

Price: $19,000 US Dollars

The 1993 Lotus Esprit is a bit unique. It has some updates from the 1989 – 1992 Turbo Esprit SE. The 1992 -1993 cars have larger cabin space and wider opening doors. It no longer has the glass back window and has a larger rear wing. ABS brakes were standard. Essentially its the last version of the Turbo SE cars.

I think the interior upgrades are much nicer than the previous years. I actually prefer the sloping rear glass window. The rear wing is more aggressive looking. Personally,

Its always good to discover something new.  I couldnt find a lot of information on these British Alvis cars.  They were a low production brand for a short period from 1963 to 1966.

This is a 3 liter drop head coupe produced by English Manufacturer called Alvis.    These cars were built between 1963 and 1966.  Their bodies were built by Mulliner Park Ward.

From 1963 to 1966 only 352 cars were produced but less than 100 Cabriolets.

This is a 1994 Defender 90. One of the coolest cars I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Defenders were brought into North America for 1994, 1995,and 1997 only. There have been very low mileage Defenders selling for over $80,000 USD.

This particular car is white and is number 451. Each car has a numbered plaque on the rear of the car. I had a 1995 beluga black car and miss selling it for way too cheap to a guy in Hamptons New York. It was number 2001 so if anyone knows where it is, I am willing to buy it back.

Lotus Esprit Turbo 1985 Project

Location: Miami

Seller is a private party

2.2 Liter Turbo Engine

5 speed manual

Giugiaro styles Esprit that needs lot of work.   It has not run in 4 years but owner states he has owned the car for 24 years but never got to the project.  He is now ready to let it go for 15k or best offer.

This is probably priced too high but could be a worthy restoration candidate for someone that loves Esprits.  It has the BBS wheels and the good thing is that its fiberglass.   It will still require a full resotration which includes full body work and paint,  engine work, and full interior restoration.

Anyone up for the Challenge?   I would love to see this restoration documented.

I have always has a fondess for Lotus Esprits.    This is an 1988 model.    Peter Stevens redesigned the esprit which debuted in 1987 also known as Project X180.    These cars are turbo charged and produce 215 bhp and 220 lb-ft  which gave it a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds.   Not bad for a 4 cylinder engine in the 1980s.    It also had a stop speed of 150 mph.

The 1989 Esprit was improved again with GM multi-port , electronic fuel injection and the addition of a new water to air intercooler which Lotus called the Chargecooler.   This raised performance to 264 hp with 280 available on overboost.   The 1989 cars had a 0-60 time of 47 seconds with a stop speed raised to 160 mph.

From Ad:

Original Left Side Door from one of the CUNNINGHAM D-type JAGUARs.

Original Jaguar D-type door with period race modifications by the USA Cunningham Racing Team, (a second outer skin to blend into the full-width perspex window and a swing down piano style door hinge replacing the standard Jaguar horizontal door hinges).
Color is Off White outside with white “meatball” and what looks like faint number “12”, Inside is dark blue or black over a earlier Blue.
Dimensions are 22″ x 16″ x 4″

I took photos of this door next to a Cuningham D-type in the Collier museum in Naples Florida.
This door matches that car exactly in size, shape and paint patterns, and the car in the museum has a replacement door, so this could be the original for that car.
I bought this door in England many years ago. A Jaguar Team mechanic that worked there when the D-type was new told me that he recognised the Alfred Momo drilled door handle lightening holes.
Condition is unchanged from when I bought the door. It shows scratches, paint chips and dings associated with racing, the perspex window is partially missing. The door latch functions as it should.
