1981 Lotus Esprit Turbo Dry Sump


1981 Lotus Esprit Turbo Dry sump finished in Monaco white with tobacco brown full leather interior .

This is a very rare opportunity to own a Lotus Esprit Turbo in the same specification as the one used in the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only" this is the same spec as the first Esprit used in the film . Only a handful were made using this colour combination .

The car sits on a set of Essex style Compomotive split rim wheels and like the Essex cars it has the single louvre support on the rear . The car does not have the iconic Panasonic roof stereo as this was an optional extra but we do have one that can be purchased separately.

This is a very original car and still has the original windscreen with the factory stickers on it, the current owner has owned the car for nine years . 

The Esprit benefits from a recent service with a refurbished water pump and new cam belt .

There is a large history file that comes with the car which includes the original service/handbook .

Any Inspection is welcome .
