2001 Lotus Esprit GT Description

You are bidding on a 2001 Lotus Esprit GT Twin Turbo V8. This is getting to be a very rare car, in fact in 1999 to 2001 there were only 204 of them manufactured, and only 60 from 2001 with the round tail lights.
This is no normal Lotus Esprit...this Esprit has been rebuilt with racing components to a level at which is truly breathtaking.
The owner wanted it fast. The engine has been rebuilt once with forged pistons, large 100cc racing injectors and upgraded Turbos all at a cost of more than $25000. But it was not fast enough.
Then it was rebuilt again, 800 miles later, with even more upgrades, including APS Head Bolts, upgraded cams for more low end torque, upgraded EMS, ECU and more powerful fuel pump.
Since the second rebuild (less than 100 miles ago), the owner has suffered an injury from a car accident and can no longer drive a 5 speed manual vehicle so sadly this must go.
This Lotus Esprit makes more than 550 bhp at the rear wheels. With a curb weight of 3000 pounds that means this car is a Ferrari, Lamborghini and Z06 killer in the 0-60, 0-100 and on any race track. This Lotus Esprit has a rear camera to make it easy to reverse, the radio has a remote control, navigation system and hard drive for MP3 and video files.
The interior is in good shape and features LED lighting, with LED projectors under each door with the LOTUS logo.
Currently the rear wing has been removed however it is included in the sale and can be installed at no cost if the new owner wishes it so. Mileage is an estimate, will update when available.
The owner is a Lotus Owners Group Member and has had 4 Lotus Esprit cars so he is very well versed in the way they operate and is meticulous about the maintenance on these cars.
Factory specs are:
Horsepower:350hpMPG:15 city / 23 highwayEngine:3.5L V8Curb weight:3,040lbsDimensions:170″ L x 74″ W x 45″ H
FINANCING AVAILABLE! This Vehicle qualifies for special financing through the Jacksonville Automotive & Motorcycle Museum with a 10 year payment plan with only 10% down WAC.

Forgot to mention that this car also has a brand new racing radiator with triple low draw high volume cooling fans so there is no worries about cooling. This is about a $3000 option installed.
Also the front spoiler lip a is real carbon fiber racing lip from a GT racer Esprit, so it is nearly indestructible. This is a $2000 option installed.
