Club member Lillie has a lovely 1992 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE ‘High Wing’ for sale. Read on for the details.

1992 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE High Wing

For sale is my 1992 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE ‘High Wing’. Only 172 of the ‘High Wing’ version of this model are believed to have been produced, and this one is understood to be the only Australian delivered example.

Today, as ever, it is still a head-turner. In very good condition throughout with 77,270km it continues to drive superbly. It holds registration valid to October 2024.

This S3 has a 2.2-litre turbo “charcooled” engine which was the first fuel injection water cooled model. From factory they put out 197kw (264hp) and 353nm reaching 100km/h from a standstill in 4.8 seconds.

The leather seats are in very good condition, just the sleeve over the gearstick and the sleeve over the brake handle have some small wear and tear holes in them, but other than that the car is in very good condition.

In 2023 the brakes and shock absorber seals were repaired. In 2020 the following repairs were done:

  • Timing belt
  • Fan belts
  • Brake hoses
  • Oil seals
  • Clutch, clutch hydraulic line, clutch master and slaves cylinders
  • Cooling system hoses
  • Gear box mounts
  • Water pump and charge cooler pump renewed
  • Headlight pod motors serviced

Included is a second set of wheels, four new tyres as well as a parts list manual and service manual.

Asking $78,000.
