Car description

Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this very nice Esprit Turbo in the perfect colors. This car was just purchased from the state of Arkansas from it's previous owner who needed some room for more toys. This car appears to be very well-preserved and completely original, except for a very nice seat recovering some time in the recent past. It's a lovely original, just in the lightly used condition you would love to find one 32 years later...The bodywork on this car looks exceptionally good and all factory correct. The paintwork is in generally very nice condition for original paint. There is a small scratch down low on the driver's door and a few minor spidering spots. There's a small tear on the corner of the LH front bumper and some waviness on the top of the bumper bar itself. The paintwork overall has a very good gloss to it and a very honest appearance.The car's interior trim is original save for a seat redo in black vinyl. It's in overall great condition. It could use the original headliner reglueing and possibly a few small pieces of dried leather replacing at some point.Mechanically, the car is in excellent health overall. It starts easily on the key, has good clutch bite, revs well and smooth with no noises or issues. The remote gearbox linkage shifts well and is easy to navigate. Brakes feel very good, up to the mark. The car rockets along the road when the turbo kicks in. It's great fun, making all of the right noises. Overall, there's no noted mechanical issues and the car feels very strong and reliable with good oil pressure, running at normal temperature. Tires could use replacement at some point down the road due to some age cracking...The car's engine compartment and front stowage compartment all look fairly clean and original. The car's underside appears quite good like a 32,000-mile car should.This handsome black on black Esprit Turbo offered for sale here is a great original, nice driving car with low miles. These cars are currently extremely good value for their looks and performance, compared to other cars of the same era.
