Finished in Pacific blue with magnolia leather seats and blue piping, full Lotus history, just 18,000 miles from new. Power steering, air con. sunroof, new MOT. Power comes from the Lotus 2.2 twin cam turbo charge cooled engine, developing 264 BHP. Magnificent condition. Values are soaring!
Evo Magazine said of the S4 Esprit….
It feels small and very low, very Elise-like in fact. And it has a similar balance when you start to work suspension and tyres harder. The wonderful steering warns you in plenty of time that the front is about to push a degree or two wide, and if the turbo is still spooling up then it will continue to slip wide of the apex. Best to just back off and let the Esprit regain its composure. If the turbo is already spinning hard then the understeer slowly bleeds away as the tail lazily arcs into oversteer (in the damp at least), which is easy to catch or hold right until the exit of the corner. Incredible balance for a mid-engined car.
