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.
