2000 Twin Turbo Lotus Esprit V8 GT – Custom – 45,500 Miles
This a second owner, well cared for exotic car. Some mild custom work creates a truly fine road machine. This is a great “drivers” car in very good condition. It has the added advantage of recent & very thorough mechanical work ($20,000). All work & upgrades have been performed by a proper Lotus dealership so this vehicle is “ready for the road”
Recent upgrades and work include – Brand new Brembo factory brakes – all new discs, complete Brembo caliper assemblies & stainless steel brake lines throughout ($9000)- New rear deck struts and new engine cover release cables. New Clutch, Flywheel, & Timing belt – with an additional $8000 spent on all new seals throughout plus $2000 on High Performance racing “cats” with custom carbon fiber exhaust tips. The “cats” are a nice upgrade. They sound amazing and enhance performance, and they facilitate the passing of emission tests. (Same EPA emissions standards in Canada & the US).
Two owner car (Bought from original owner), always garaged, custom paint & graphics, never seen snow, no accidents, highway driven, meticulously maintained.
Additional upgrades and features include – 350 sport suspension roll bar. Limited slip differential. 600 watt Pioneer sound system and Boston speakers. Rear back up camera. Double core radiators with city driving setting. Carbon fiber front lip spoiler & carbon fiber rear diffuser. ReCaro seats. Star Shield protective body bra. Custom Turbo boost gauge.

Driving this vehicle is always an event as it is unique on the road and evokes interest & conversation. Car is presently located in Toronto under Canadian registration – Originally a California car with 45,500 documented miles – Hard to find another vehicle with so much current owner investment. You need to seriously look at this opportunity. Here you can have an exotic, head turning European Sports Car for less money than you would spend on most of the cars you will find out there. Another bonus is the expensive maintenance items have been properly taken care of.
Buy it, get in and drive. Take it to shows and she will get lots of attention, and she will most likely win you some trophies.
