1987 Lo­tus Esprit S3

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The Esprit was lauded by many as the best ju­nior su­per­car, and with good rea­son. Lo­tus showed a four-cylin­der en­gine was just as good as any­thing big­ger, and com­bined with leg­endary han­dling, the Esprit con­tin­ued Lo­tus’ driver-in­volv­ing theme. Five years in Cyprus has helped this car’s con­di­tion (de­scribed by the auc­tioner as ‘su­perb’) and ser­vice history back to the 1990s adds new-owner re­as­sur­ance. Said to be in an un­mo­lested/ un­mod­i­fied state and with just 41,150 miles on the clock, this 172bhp high-com­pres­sion 2.2-litre Se­ries 3 car is a more in­ter­est­ing al­ter­na­tive to a 308 any day of the week.
