1995 Lotus Esprit S4s

In 1995, many modifications were added to the S4 to improve engine performance. The engine kept its 2.2 liter capacity, but enlarged inlet ports, head modifications, and a revised turbocharging system help realize 34 additional horsepower.

Externally, the S4s receives the bodywork of the previous S4 Sport 300. Such enhancements include a larger rear wing and bigger wheel arches.

Larger braking was also included complements of Brembo.

1999 Lotus Esprit Sport 350

1995 Lotus Esprit S4s Coupe LN910950929051T – sold for $52,250

Looking every bit the archetypal British Sports Car, this Lotus sits in rich dark ‘racing’ green paint (code 804) on alloy rims and with a warm ‘biscuit’ interior (code XX10). Manufactured by Lotus Cars works in September 1995, the Esprit S4S was originally imported to the U.S. and its tags confirm it to have been officially federalized. It has covered a modest mileage accrual of just under 27,000 miles from new, all that in nearly 20 years of potential road time. Not surprisingly the car is extremely clean throughout, from its updated Momo wood rimmed steering wheel and faux wood door trims to its full leather trimmed cabin. The external paint finish remains very tidy for its age. Auction Source: The Amelia Island Auction 2015 by Bonhams1998 Lotus Esprit – sold for $29,700
