1990 Lotus IsuzuVERY RARE COLLECTOR CAR HANDLED BY LOTUS FOR ISUZU, THIS IS ONE OF THE TOP 10FORGOTTENSPORTS CAR IN THE WORLD, AND IT IS VERY RARE ONLY FEW SURVIVED TO THIS DAY.
Designed by the revolutionary Italian legendGiorgetto Giugiaro, the one behind greats like the Lotus Esprit, the Ferrari 250 GT and many others,His concept called the "Ace of Clubs" was angular and sleek at the same time, very sporty, and thoroughly modern.The original Impulse was designed in Italy, built in Japan, backed by an American auto giant, and fettled with by the Brits – an absolute world product.The Impulse looked like a rocket ship.
This second-generation, 1990 Impulse XS, lacks the luster of its angular forefather, but with the memorable ‘Handling by Lotus’ package, it’s still quite a rarebird.The Impulse gotthe legendary rare Lotus Elan M1001.6L L4 DOHC 16VengineandLotus-tuned suspension packagewith softer springs, stiffer shocks and revised sway bars.
This car has had 1 owner for the last 12 years and it's in driving condition although some things need to be changed or tuned, after it's been parked for the last 2-3 years:- it needs new tires- needs oil and filter change- needs new battery, although the current one may still hold some charge- needs a brake check (new pads and bleeding?)- it hassome rust spots (seen in pictures)- AC needs to be checked and eventually charged- Driver-side inside door handle and lock are broken and need to be changed- dashboard is cracked, by sun heat.- carpet, passenger seat and ceiling cloth have some stains- paint has some blemishes and the clear coat is peeling off in some places.- radio antenna is broken
The engine was replaced with a rebuilt one and has less than 5,000 miles on it.Clean title never been inaccident (other than a light fender-bender - scratches could be seen on the bumpers)
The car belonged to my brother, who had a stroke 3 years ago, and always hoped he's going to recover to drive it again. Now, it's pretty clear he's not going to be able to and, with a medical debt of over $80,000, all the proceeds will go towards medical bills.
Please only serious buyer bid, bid generously, and the highest bidder will get this rare car in his collection, whether he gets it to restore it or as spare parts for other restoration/maintenance.
