1991 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE Jim Clark Jim Clark LE

CLICK HERE FOR A WALK AROUND AND COLD START VIDEO The names Jim Clark and Lotus are virtually inseparable. One just would not be complete without the other. Each of Clark’s two Formula One Drivers’ Championships was at the wheel of a Lotus, and in 1965 Clark and Lotus turned American open-wheel racing on its head by winning the Indy 500. With that kind of history, Lotus capitalized on Clark’s legacy and in 1991 they celebrated the 25th anniversary of the...Indy win by offering a special edition of their mid-engined road car, the Esprit. Limited to only twenty units, the Jim Clark Edition Esprits were all 2.2 liter Turbo SE’s finished in green with yellow wheels and accents with a yellow interior. These were sold alongside the normal Turbo SE and the X180R that was inspired by the then-current Esprit race cars. This is a seriously rare version of a car that was already a big deal in its day. Even though it only had four cylinders, the Esprit Turbo SE, with its chargecooled version of Lotus’s 912 engine, could keep up with just about anything in the early ’90s. This Jim Clark version is number 12 of 20. It's a two-owner car and the most recent owner owned it since 1994 and purchased with only 1266 miles! In addition to the special trim, it comes with a commemorative numbered dash plaque, and a Jim Clark Indy 500 replica steering wheel (for display, not on car). The car has been meticulously maintained both aesthetically and mechanically. The owner was even known to drive the car with plastic coverings on the seats to preserve the yellow leather interior. Always garaged on a tender and only driven on days with no forecasted rain. It starts and runs beautifully! Both the hard top and the glass top come with the car.
