This is a Lotus Esprit, 1989, 2.2 litre high compression engine. Lotus only built 167 high compression cars so they are EXTREMELY collectable for those who know their cars. The car has the original owner handbook and all old MOT certificates in a huge box file with all receipts for the work carried out.

Total in receipts so far is 89,000€ (450,000 Dhs) so as you can imagine it is ABSOLUTELY IMMACULATE.


Please note that receipts are available for all work carried out. The below is presented as an overview of what has been done to the vehicle since the ownership.

Reverse sensor replaced (2009)

Brake light sensor replaced (2009)

Drivers and passengers side window lift motors replaced (2009)

Remote central locking system installed (2009)

Full re-spray carried out in 2009, absolutely immaculate color of ALPINA white, code 300. Respray was carried out by local paint-shop which specializes in Ferrari/ Lamborghini/ Lotus. Cost 3500 Euro.

All surrounding rubber has been replaced on the car during the re-spray. Before the re-spay the car was totally stripped down (doors/ bonnet/ boot/ headlight pods/ wheels etc. etc. etc.), therefore the result is amazing.

Interior roof lining replaced with black leather (2009)

New carpets installed (2009)

Momo steering wheel installed (2009)

Momo gear knob installed (2009)

New 18 inch original LOTUS AWI monoblock alloys installed. Suspension tuned and wheels re-aligned upon installation of new alloys. Original alloys (16 rear and 15 front) are in immaculate condition and available. (2009)

New CD player installed (2009)

New adjustable suspension set up all around (2009)

New temperature sensor installed (2009)

Radiator fans have been re-manufactured and re-painted (2009)

Radiator fan mounting plate has been replaced with stainless steel item (2009)

New air-con pump installed. We decided to use a micron Denso Sard compressor which does not affect the cars performance at all, furthermore the new compressor vastly out performs the original factory one which was completely useless at 45 degrees in Cyprus (2010).

New windshield installed (2010)

Stainless steel engine lid fastener installed (2010)

New engine lid mounting screws installed (2010)

New gearbox surround-lid white retainers installed as the originals where badly cracked and somewhere missing (2010)

Heads where re-painted to RED collour during the process, exhaust manifold removed and re-painted black, all exhaust and engine screws/ retainers replaced with new items during rebuild. (2010)

Lower air inlets have been covered in see through stickers to avid stone chips to the body work, this is an area which is close to the ground and suffers from stone chips extensively (2010)

Thermal tree replaced (2012)

Reverse gear selector replaced (2012)

Clutch slave cylinder replaced (2011)

Clutch master cylinder replaced (2011)

Clutch red hose conversion carried out, so no more sticky reverse issues when the engine is up to full operating temperature. Also gear work much smoother. (2011)

All water hoses replaced with new items (2011)

High performance aero grade stainless steel exhaust hand made by Ferrari specialist on the island, the sound and performance difference is in one word AMAZING. The development process took over three months and 3 exhaust systems where binned before this one was finally developed. (2012)

New exhaust olives (connectors) installed (2012)

New Kamp;amp;amp;amp;N performance air filter installed. (2012)

Air flow has been re-routed from behind the boot rear wheel-well to directly from behind the driver’s side rear window, this has resulted in a much nicer sound and slight performance increase as the engine now breaths cold air instead of the hot air from the boot (2012)

Carbs disassembled and completely rebuilt, new floaters installed. Carbs have been retuned using vacuum gauges. Process has taken nearly two working days. (2011)

New hand-made fuel pipes manufactured and –installed, every single component in the fuel system has been rebuilt by Lotus master technicians. (2012)

All air-con hoses and connectors have been replaced with NEW items. (2012)

New air-con radiator installed, works much better now. (2012)

Brand new water radiator has been hand made on the island and installed, the new radiator is a dual core radiator which helps the engine run at about 5 degrees lower operating temperature. (2012)

Driver’s side seat leather repaired with new parts. (2011)

Complete passengers side window surround frame flown in and installed, the original item was beginning to rust and I couldn’t justify a cheap temporary repair.(2012)

Both driver’s side and passenger side doors have been re-aligned so open and close perfectly now (July 2012).

Engine bay gas struts replaced. (2009)

New front and rear tyres (April 2013)

Engine oil and filter replaced twice a year, the oil that I prefer to use in these high temperatures here on the island is Valvoline 10W60 fully synthetic motor oil. This oil is race proven and by far superior to Castrol 10W60 which I used in the car previously.

Full CAMBELT service carried out including Oil, Filter, etc. etc (December 2013)

New stainless steel downpipes fitted. Custom made with enhanced gas flow.
