Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this 1997 Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo. Lotus rolled out their first Esprit in the late 70s. The idea was a lightweight fiberglass body wrapped around a steel backbone which housed a mid mounted engine delivering 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 featuring twin Garrett Turbochargers. Tests in the day achieved performance numbers on par with the best contemporary exotics and a top speed of over 175 MPH. This particular example is a clean stock example in beautiful red over tan leather. It rides on the handsome set of 6 spoke alloy wheels. The seating position is all business, the exhaust note is sophisticated, and the acceleration will excite even the most seasoned driver. 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. With just 43,090 miles on the odometer this Lotus is ready for a new home. If you're looking for a sharp exotic, this is the one you want to own! Options include AC, AM/FM/CD stereo, targa top, spare tire, cruise control, power brakes, power steering, power locks, jack, power windows, power mirrors, seat belts, leather interior and alloy wheels wrapped in radial tires.
