Description Lotus Esprit S3 Turbo HC 1987

Reluctant Sale of my Late S3 Turbo HC I had wanted this car for so long and now due to unforeseen circumstances I must sell after spending thousands in recent months and many many hours labour.
I am the 3rd owner from new and I know both other owners. FSH from new the car is original in terms of original paint and trim etc. Over the years many thousands have been spent on the car. Both previous owners are friends and owned the car for approx 14 years each. However the car has only covered approx 2500 miles in the last 14 years but has been MOT'd every year and used every year from new. Vast service history. The car comes complete with the original tool kit, sunroof bag, wind deflector, original handbook with early service stamps plus many invoices for all work.
In the 2500 miles covered in the 14 years prior to my ownership the radiator has been replaced the waste gate diaphragm replaced, full new clutch, gearbox rebuilt with replacement crown wheel and pinion, vacuum pump, water pump, reconditioned brake callipers fitted etc. replacement dampers, on top of normal servicing. The car has wanted for nothing and has been garaged all its life.
Work I have carried out includes :-
I removed the engine to replace exhaust Manifold but ended up doing many more jobs that are best tackled when the engine is out, in brief:-
Replacement Manifold fitted.
Replacement waste gate adapter with fresh machined and case hardened valve seat (better than original specification)
Engine stripped and checked while replacing the cylinder head due to damage around an exhaust manifold stud while removing the old exhaust manifold. The new head was supplied by Garry Kemp. The head was then rebuilt with valves lapped in and checked.
All new gaskets etc.
New thermostat
All new belts and Cambelt tensioner bearing.
All new engine, gearbox oil and coolant fluids and filters.
Exhaust stainless flexi replaced
Carbs overhauled ultrasonically cleaned and rebuilt with new rebuild kit from Euro Carbs Dellortto official UK distributers.
Gear linkage bushes replaced
New Chassis alloy coolant and heater pipes replaced.
This is a brilliant drop dead gorgeous crowd stopping car which looks so much better in the flesh than in photos the red is simply stunning the best colour for a turbo in my opinion.
Must be seen with its original paint work and the service history must be viewed to be appreciated. An unmessed with example with all original gleaming paint work and the most common G car issues sorted. It would be virtually impossible to find an example that has just had a major mechnical overhaul with all its original features and documentation. Must be seen!!
