The charge-cooled SE Esprit derivative was the most powerful variant with the most accelerative power and the fastest-selling Esprit to date, with 264bhp and 0-6mph in under 5 seconds. From its formal unveiling on 10 May 1989 to the close of its debut year, the Lotus Esprit Turbo SE recorded production of 563 units.
There are two twin mounted gas tanks, with filler holes on each side of the vehicle. Although it has the status of being a "supercar", gas milage is still respectable at 17 city and 28 on the highway. Tires are Toyo Proxes 4's in excellent condition and with plenty of miles yet to go on them.
Flaws are at a minimum for a car that is 23 years old and has not been restored. If you haven't driven a turbo yet, your are in for a treat, at the way it kicks in the power and gets up and goes from its four cylinder engine. Front and rear vented disc brakes.
The standard equipment for the Esprit SE includes: tilt/removable glass sunroof, air conditioning, electric windows, central door locking, electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, three phase ice warning system, front fog lamps. 'SE' full leather interior with polished burr elm instrument panel.
The Lotus has had 3 owners. As with most "supercars" seating is for two, and styling included a walnut burr fascia; leather trim; lift-out/tilt glass sunroof, and air conditioning. The car has been well maintained with regular oil changes, but no major service that we know of. The current owner purchased the car in 2011 and it had 22,825 miles on it. You can see he has driven it very little. Car Fax shows the mileage to be correct. Four way adjustable shocks were installed in November of 2011.
