A Brief History:
Restyled by Peter Stevens the X180 is a modern, less angular, softer Esprit. The Special Equipment (SE) model also received side skirts with active brake cooling ducts, A new air dam with integrated fog lamps and cooling ducts, Revised exterior mirrors, and a rear wing. The changes were not only to the exterior. Interior changes include more room for the occupants and a revised center console, An uograded audio system, Heat, Ventilation and A/C got upgrades also. Body Panels were produced using a new process patented by LOTUS called VARI (Vacuum Assisted Resin Injection). Kevlar was also added to the roof panels giving the Esprit greater rollover safety. A center removable roof panel is standard. The process also increased production quality and torsional rigidity by 22%.
Enhancements to the drivetrain include: Type 910S Turbocharged 4 Cylinder Engine is mated to a UN-1 5 Speed Transaxle supplied by Renault, Revised rear brakes are outboard, Lotus/Delco multi-point fuel injection (MPFI) system replaces the old Bosch System. Chargecooler air-water-air intercooler. Power output was increased to 264 hp with 280 hp available on overboost. 0-60 mph acceleration times are 4.7 seconds and the top speed is in excess of 160 mph.
It has been said that the SE cars are the best blend of 4 cylinder reliability and light weight handling incorporating V8 styling.
We think you will agree that our 1990 Esprit SE is a rare opportunity to own an appreciating ICON.
