1983 Lotus Esprit Turbo
Apparently, this Esprit was one of the first batch of 50 to be imported to the US after establishment of a new importer in the early 80’s–a reward for the investors in the new venture. The “Special Edition” script on the door is a bit cheesy – a brass plaque would’ve been more classy – but the gunmetal grey paint with grey stripes looks magnificent. The light grey mesh alloys are a wonderful touch as well. It looks well maintained, as well.
It’s on eBay in Missouri for $35k or offer.
