It wasn’t long ago that the average value on a Lotus Esprit was in the $30,000 to $40,000 range. So you can see why it is now an eye opener to see this 1978 Lotus Esprit being listed by KC Classic Autos in Lenexa, Kansas for less than half that. When set up right these lightweight phenoms are the fastest thing on the road. (Click this link to see the ad.)
KC Classic tells us it has 46k original miles, and comes with an original Twin Weber carb setup (not the newer replacements) rebuilt last year. That original twin carb setup really gives the 2.0L engine plenty of punch. For those who know, this one will be our DEAL of the DAY next week. The asking price is only $14,900.
In the ad, KC Classic Autos says:
The 1978 Lotus Esprit is a classic British car for those that love lightweight performance and handling. This car has 46k original miles. The Twin Weber Carbs (the real ones, not the newer) were rebuilt last year and really gives the 2.0L engine plenty of punch. It also has new brakes, clutch, and Kenwood stereo. This car is amazing to drive.
