Description:

1990 Lotus Esprit

Thanks for looking. If you are here then I'm sure you are familiar with the Esprit and all its attributes. I purchased the car in 2011 locally here in the NY area. She did need some love but many crucial upgrades had been done as well. I will list everything below:

To be transparent, will list what I discovered post purchase. I hold a clear NY title, hen I purchased the car the same was given to me. Upon looking into the history of the car there was a mileage discrepancy early in the Esprit's life. The car was registered with 100,749 when I assume it should have been 10,749. All the other mileage entries after this one coincide with the current mileage of 50,389. Carfax shows a branded title that may be due to this mileage discrepancy as it states "Exceeds Mechanical Limits title issued". Carfax also shows no total loss or structural damage. That being said the car runs and drives great, o check engine or warning lights on. All gauges work. HVAC is not cold but blower works. The car does need rear tires soon, ronts have plenty of tread. Driver's door has paint chipping at door hinge (touched up). Passenger door does have a 1 inch paint bubble near door strip. Power delivery is great and she is loud. Let me know if you have questions or want specific pictures, tc.
