Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this 1997 Lotus
Esprit V8 Twin Turbo. Lotus rolled out their first Esprit in the
late 70s. The idea was a lightweight fiberglass body wrapped around
a steel backbone which housed a mid mounted engine delivering power
to the rear wheels. The formula was one for a very sporty car which
was fine tuned over the years. In 1996 Lotus released a big
surprise in the form of a self-developed 3.5 Liter aluminum V8
featuring twin Garrett Turbochargers. Tests in the day achieved
performance numbers on par with the best contemporary exotics and a
top speed of over 175 MPH. This particular example is a clean stock
example in beautiful red over tan leather. It rides on the handsome
set of 6 spoke alloy wheels. The seating position is all business,
the exhaust note is sophisticated, and the acceleration will excite
even the most seasoned driver. If you've never driven a
turbocharged car before, it is a sensation you must experience.
This is a car that is for the driving enthusiast. With just 43,090
miles on the odometer this Lotus is ready for a new home. If you're
looking for a sharp exotic, this is the one you want to own!
Options include AC, AM/FM/CD stereo, targa top, spare tire, cruise
control, power brakes, power steering, power locks, jack, power
windows, power mirrors, seat belts, leather interior and alloy
wheels wrapped in radial tires. This 1997 Lotus Esprit is offered
