1997 Lotus Esprit V8

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to offer a beautiful 1997 Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo. Lotus rolled out their first Esprit in 1976. The idea was a lightweight fiberglass body wrapped around a steel backbone which housed a mid mounted engine which delivered 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 with is augmented by twin Garrett Turbochargers. This set is was capable of 500+ HP. The standard transmission is a 5 speed manual Renault transmission. Tests in the day achieved 0-60MPH in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of over 175 MPH. With these stats, this 1997 model is still competitive against today's sports cars. This particular example is a clean stock example in beautiful red over Tan leather. It rides on OZ Racing wheels with summer tires in all four corners. This vehicle is an absolute joy to drive. The seating position is all business, the exhaust note is incredible, and the acceleration will excite even the most seasoned driver. The V8 has nice torque even from no RPMs and then once the turbos spool up an exhilarating whoosh of power is unleashed. 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.

This Particular example is possibly one of the cleanest low mile offerings we have ever seen. with only 16442 Actual miles and a clean carfax history, as well as a full service history, this is the one for a serious collector.

You can see this 1997 Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo in our Dallas showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please call 817-310-9400 or email Dallas@gatewayclassiccars.com with any questions.
