So you want a sports car eh? A.... classic? British? For a low price and a pretty low mileage? Then this red Esprit S4S is what you want!

Well, where do I start? The Esprit S4S is a great British sports car for what it costs and is considered by many to be the best 4 cylinder car Lotus has built. It's also a very beautiful car, at least to people like me. Just take a look at that stunner! Unfortunately, when it was new it sold only a handful, making them pretty rare and even more rare as time passes. Okay okay i'll stop blabbering about how great of a car the S4S is and i'll tell you what you came for. It has 49,000 miles on it, in great condition, and it's on sale for just £28995 from a seller in Lowestoft, Norfolk. Yep, just that much.

Alright sure reliability may be an issue, but of course the owner made sure the car was in great condition before selling it. The seller has had the Esprit for 3 years and during that time he had the gearbox completely rebuilt. He has also replaced the following parts: timing belt/tensioner, flywheel/clutch, clutch fork, clutch master/slave cylinders, rear crankshaft and driveshaft oil seals, rear dampers/springs, rear brake hoses, engine & gearbox mountings, battery, brake accumulator and ABS pressure switch. He sent it and got it back from Esprit Engineering with new lower link bushes, a full set of new Continental Sport Contact 3 Tyres, and a MOT that will end March 2020 with a B Service and in-depth check over.

The Eprit S4S's specs are:

0-60 mph: 4.3 sec

0-100 mph: 14.8 sec

Top Speed: 168 mph

1/4 mile: 14.2 sec @ 111 mph

Keep in mind that it has just 301 horsepower.

The interior, with very great looking cream seats with red accents. Just imagine being in it! The pure driving experience, the feel of the steering wheel in your hands, and the sound of the engine! This example, I forgot to mention, has those highly sought after OZ Racing rims. If this car doesn't tempt you at all then I don't know what does. So hurry up and get this Esprit S4 before someone else does! At such a low price, you will definitely make a fortune because of how rare it is if you decide to sell it in the future.

    • Thanks! Would you get the Esprit? Or another sports car like a 911 for the same price? I think I know the answer but I want to confirm it....
