1999 LOTUS ESPRIT SPORT 350 FINISHED IN METALLIC BLACK OVER TWO TONE RED AND BLACK INTERIOR 3.5L TWIN TURBO 350 HP RWD
TIMING BELT SERVICE JUST COMPLETED!!
There were plans to build 50 Sport 350 cars between the 1999 and 2001 model years; however there was first the prototype show car, then just 42 road cars (for Europe) plus 4 track cars for Japan and each of these cars had a unique edition number. There were also an additional 8 cars produced for the US market, but these were to a different specification and had their own numbering of which your car was number 7 of 8. Changes to the US Sport 350 from the standard US V8 specification included; body colour licence plate and rear light surrounds, revised engine programming, body colour centre console and door trim insert, unique trim as detailed above, the following aluminium parts; fascia panel, gearlever knob and trim ring, the following Sport 350 specification parts; front spoiler and finisher, carbon fibre rear wing, sport brake package with black calipers and magnesium road wheels with Federal specification tyres. No Sport 350 decals were factory fitted. The colours were limited to 4 in New Aluminium and 4 in metallic black (met. black unique to the Sport 350). The following is based on serial number sequence and data available to date for the Sport 350 for USA; Your car was the last out of 4 cars in metallic black.
There was only one other Sport 350 in Metallic black and that was for the UK. So only 5 total Esprit were ever made in Metallic Black and this was the last one produced! The original body colour was metallic black, Lotus paint code B13. The original interior trim was unique black leather with Portland grey leather seat centres, backrest and door trims, with black carpet and black Alcantara roof liner. Optional extras were; glass roof. The car was signed from production on the 20th January 2000. As seen in the pictures the interior trim was updated to a red/black color combo and the aluminum parts were painted red as well. The last owner has had the car since 2007 with 21k miles. He did regular services and had minimal issues during ownership. The only thing he worked on mechanically was the A/C compressor. There was a fitting on the compressor that gave him an issue but it was taken care of at the Lotus dealer in Denver. When we got the car it ran perfect and really did not need much attention. Due to time and miles we decided to do Full Timing Belt Service with Pulleys along with spark plugs, fuel pump, fuel hoses, rear tires and battery. This Esprit runs better then any Esprit I have come across and is certainly the best looking Esprit around! This very special vehicle is in great condition all around. Do not hesitate to call us about this Rare Esprit Sport 350, it will not last long!!
This Sport 350 comes with One Key, Certificate of Provenance and Recent Records!!
