Lotus Esprit S4

Ah, the old story. You buy the car, and then find you don't have the space to keep it. That happened with this one - the owner's had it since last year, and bought off a guy who'd cherished his Lotus Esprit S4 since 2001. In total, this late S4 has a mere 36,153 miles on the clock, and a comprehensive history to back it up. In many ways, these late Esprits are the ones to have - because handling and performance are well up to modern supercar standards, and yet, underneath, they're still a known quantity to Lotus specialists. With new tyres, MoT and tax, it's ready to enjoy - such ability and road presence for a relatively modest amount of money.
