1977 Lotus Esprit S1-Nice!
Up for sale and flash to the past is our 1977 Lotus Esprit S1 . Runs, drives, and stops great! 30,746 original miles, always climate controlled garaged kept when not in use. All original interior, time warp to 1977 and I can't tell you how great it feels to drive this car if you are stuck in the 70's and 80's like I am, lol. I've always been a huge fan of this car since the James Bond movie came out, most notably The Spy Who Loved Me August 3rd, 1977. Lotus 2.0L 4 cylinder engine runs like a sewing machine and the C35 5 speed transmission shifts through all the gears with ease including reverse. A true collector's car, stamp manufacturer date 3/77. Engine 1973 cc, 160 HP, light car overall 1,984 lbs, top speed 133 mph. Only 718 S1's in Lotus's production run so this is a rare bird.
Mechanical Maintenance: Oil/filter (full synthetic 15w50) changed 10/2/18, 500 miles. New gear oil, new fuel lines, and filters. Brakes serviced on 3/15/18, new pads. All electrics work the way they should: flip up lights, side marker lens, blinkers, and interior lights. All window motors, buttons, and windows work as they should.
Exterior: The exterior is in stunning condition! This car has beautiful design lines and eye catching no matter what angle. All original Calypso Red holds a strong shine and Is professionally waxed every 6 months. Newer performance tires (1,100 miles) and new wheel set to time period and give this Lotus a sporty look. No accidents or body damage to the frame or body. Car cover comes with the Lotus as well as original spare tire, manuals, and booklets.
Interior: The interior is all original fabric, panels, and headliner. All carpet in very good-clean condition, just a couple nicks. In amazing condition and has been well preserved. I was sold just as much on the interior as exterior because of its originality. The AC and heat work great! Original Lotus radio, late 70's equalizer and radar detector, and stock speakers!! I love it.
Paperwork and Terms: Clean, clear title and fully insured. All original manuals, booklets, receipts of maintenance follow with the new owner. This Lotus is located in beautiful Wilmington, NC and is available for showing. If you are wanting to ship, I would be happy to assist the carrier with loading but its ultimately the responsibility of the buyer to arrange.

No warranty expressed or implied. In great running condition at time of sale. Thanks for your interest in our 77 Lotus Esprit S1!
