In 1989 Lotus made a huge leap ahead with the birth of the Esprit Turbo SE. This model featured a Chargecooler (water cooled intercooler) which boosted the power from 215 BHP to 264 BHP with a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds! Keeping the power anchored to the road are 215/50/15 front, 245/50/16 rear tyres and a very neat rear spoiler and deeper front spoiler. The interior featured deeper more snug fitting seats. This car was an instant success and became the flagship model costing a whooping £49,000, that’s equivalent to about £95,000 today and is still one of the best looking cars in the world!
This lovely Esprit Turbo SE is finished in Pacific blue with magnolia leather upholstery. The mileage is only 57,000 with full Lotus service history and recently serviced by us including new tyres, steering rack and rear dampers. This car is fitted with a sports exhaust and drives as well as it looks.
