1987 Lotus Esprit HCI


Fly to Alaska and drive thisbeautiful 1987 Lotus Turbo Esprit HCI down the Trans Alaska/Canada (ALCAN) highway!

-- Totally took this nextpart from another auction (had to increase the hp, the HCI is the most powerful of the G-body cars --

Red with tan leather interior, 2,174cc DOHC 16-Valve Turbocharged 4-Cylinder Engine, 5-Speed.

The Lotus Esprit became an instant star when James Bond and ‘Q’ chose it for the 007 films “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “For Your Eyes Only.” A Turbo Esprit for Roger Moore as James Bond was used in “For Your Eyes Only” with skis strapped to the back for a skiing trip to Italy’s posh Cortina ski resort. What more can be said, awesome!

The Esprit design was unmistakably from the pen of designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. The Esprit featured all-independent suspension and Lotus’s own 16-valve, four-cylinder engine placed transversely mid-ship, mated to a five-speed transaxle. Disc brakes were fitted to all four wheels, the rears being mounted inboard. In 2.2 liter turbocharged form, the Esprit HCI produced 220bhp and was good for a top speed of 152mph, 0-60 mph attainable in just 5.5 seconds.

Hand built in limited numbers; the Esprit remains one of the most iconic and popular thoroughbred sports cars ever produced.

-- Back to my stuff --

This is a fantastic example. Engine completely rebuilt and transmission serviced and in great working order.

Has studded snow tires and is massively stable in the snow
