Brookspeed are pleased to off for sale this very rare Lotus Esprit V8. First registered in February 1998 this particular Esprit V8 is finished in a stunning and very rare colour combination of Titanium Silver with Red Leather Interior and Alcantara Headlining. Being 1998 registered and not to be confused with earlier V8,s for sale, this car is the more desirable facelift model which includes a number of improvements and refinements over the Pre 1998 V8 models. The first owner of this particular car is understood to have been Lotus Cars themselves where it was a Lotus Directors car until July 1999 and has those maintenance stamps to support. The current owner and Lotus enthusiast has had this car in his collection since April 2016 having bought it from a good friend of his and who had owned it since September 2013. The car is accompanied by a comprehensive and full service history file with nearly every MOT certificate including the first which was completed in January 2001 together with supporting invoices for much of the work completed since. Much of the servicing has been undertaken by Lotus Main Dealers or well known Lotus Specialists and the car has a total of 18 Service Stamps in the service book. All servicing and the majority of works undertaken by the current owner have been completed either by us hear at Brookspeed or by renowned Lotus specialist Esprit Engineering in Downton near Salisbury, the latter having completed Major and Minor Services and with a Major Service, Replacement Cambelt and replacement Springs and Bilstein Dampers all round including shims (as original Lotus Fitment) to the car at 77,785 Miles and a further recent Full Service completed in March 2022 at 79000 Miles. The car has now completed just 79,184 Miles and everything is in complete and working order including the AC which has previously been overhauled and holds perfect charge. The car is in completely standard and original excellent condition with the exception of a Stainless Steel Sports Exhaust. Standard equipment includes Electric Windows with Full Closure Alarm (with 2 keys and alarm fobs present), Remote Central Locking, Power Steering and Electric Mirrors. The original Alpine Sound System remains and will be provided with the car albeit the current owner has replaced the original Alpine head unit with an up to date plug and play Alpine unit with Bluetooth Hands free. The car also has the benefit of the preferred removable/tilting solid body coloured roof panel (many others have a glass roof). Overall, we really believe this particular Esprit will not disappoint. It starts first time every time, runs perfectly and is an absolute pleasure to drive and certainly stands out amongst other cars within our showroom. Finance Packages Arranged. This car is located at our Chandlers Ford Showroom SO53 1JH 02382 511115

    • For the two years of Covid, Brookspeed serviced & maintained our 2016 BMW 218SE Convertible. On each occasion, Martin collected the car from us in Ocean Village, drove it to Chandlersford and brought it back that evening MoT'd and serviced (and cleaned!).When we decided, a month ago, to give up driving, Martin offered to sell the car for us. He picked it up, did all (and I mean all) the paperwork including advertising online and now (less than four weeks later) Brookspeed have sold the car a... Read More

    • A BIG thank you to Rob and all the staff at Brookspeed. I can`t thank them enough, I got 5 star plus service from them all. I sold my car using their sale or return service, I got an excellent price for my car. I also used them to get a full service on my Porsche, that also was excellent. I would highly recommend their service`s to anyone. I will definitely use them again. Many thanks Mike Bailey.

    • This garage is absolutely amazing and have always given me honest advice, looked after my Audi's and I wouldn't go anywhere else now! Lovely people!

    • Excellent service department run by true knowledgeable enthusiast's, you can now buy your next used Porsche there too.

    • Great service for MOT and annual service for my much loved Boxster S. I had an issue with the battery a while back and they advised over the phone before dispatching a technician to my home to resolve the issue. Took a donation only for their efforts - fantastic service and I thoroughly recommend for anyone who loves their car. They will too!

    • Really pleased to find this Porsche specialist- they are very knowledgeable and went to a lot of trouble to explain what needed to be done. Technician was very clear when he explained and showed me under my Boxster what required attention and certainly was not there to find work, more so to save me money! The office staff were so helpful and really friendly too. The owner of the business was happy to spend time with me as well so in a summing up I’d say that I would highly recommend this c...

    • Just got car back from major service - very thorough inspection of car. Staff very friendly and informative. I was kept up to speed and consulted always beforehand if some unexpected parts were faulty and had to be subsequently replaced. Never seen a cleaner car when I picked it up too! Outstanding service!

    • I got my first ever Porsche (a 2001 boxster) a little under a year ago. Whilst I did not get this car from Brookspeed, I visited them for some "novice" advice. Considering I had not made an appointment/did not get my car from them, they were brilliant and were very attentive and very objective. Having spent a great summer driving this car, I've been back to them over the summer to get an indicator stalk replaced/fitted, have a new exhaust and, more recently, following my MOT advisories, had new ...

    • I'm lucky enough to have been the proud owner of a 2001 986 for three years now and have been using Brookspeed throughout my ownership. From the initial pre-purchase inspection (which helped significantly with the negotiation with the dealer); minor and major servicing; to my most recent exhaust fit. Dealing with them has been a real delight; Martin, Ian, Janine, Jason, Simon and the rest of the workshop crew are all very friendly, professional and willing to help and offer sensible advice whene...
