2002 Lotus Esprit V8 - Incredible Nut & Bolt Restoration - Best Esprit ever built
In a fiercely competitive auction we were delighted to be the winners of this unique 2002 Lotus Esprit V8 Turbo, described by many as the world’s best, not only as a car but with the story and ownership attributed to it.
Many Lotus fans will be aware of Dany Bahar’s controversial spell as CEO of the Norfolk company. Included in this was his desire to produce for himself the ultimate Lotus Esprit that matched his ambitions of the quality that he was hoping to bring to the Lotus brand and what Lotus Cars should stand for.
It’s rumoured that upwards of £100,000 was poured into what was already a decent example Esprit.
This car is outstanding in all areas and cannot be faulted. Engine, Chassis, Bodywork, Interior were all replaced and/or upgraded and if not seen with your own eyes we strongly recommend a visit to our showroom where this car can be seen, and the huge paperwork and photograph files of the works can be enjoyed. Google is a great starting point as many articles can be read of Dany Bahars White Lotus Esprit.
It has been looked after and cherished by its two private owners since Bahar, with over £32,000 in invoices from the current registered keeper alone. It further benefits from a full-service history, stamped in the original service book, most recently receiving an A-Service in August 2023 from Stratton Motor Company as well as new timing belts/tensioners and new rear suspension, amongst other work.
This vehicle will be supplied with an oil and filter service carried out, an MOT where required and 3 Months nationwide Autoguard warranty with option to extend.
Finance can be provided by our independent broker Chatsbrook Finance.
Transport delivery is available up to 100 miles without charge. Further afield will be available upon request.
