1988 Lotus Esprit Turbo For Sale in Virginia Beach
Location: Virginia Beach, Virginia
Odometer: 25,500 Miles
Here is a White on Black 1988 Lotus Esprit Turbo found in Virginia Beach. It has only 25,500 miles and seller states it is in excellent condition. It has been given a new paint job and the wheels have been powder coated. This car has been seen for sale for several months. Maybe the price can be negotiated. I would assume it has been passed on so you should investigate further before purchase. A Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) would be recommended but it does look to be cosmetically nice. I would love to take this car for a test drive and check out the engine and overall condition. It could be a diamond in the rough. Perhaps with minor repairs, this could be a fun daily driver or track car for not a lot of money at all.

1993 Lotus Esprit Turbo

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,

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.
