Description

First registered in 1995 and finished in Aluminium metallic paint, the S4s model was only produced for about 1 year and this is 1 of only 72 cars ever registered in the UK.
Fitted with the 2. 2-litre turbo from the S300 that has enlarged inlets and hybrid turbo, this produces approx 300bhp. There are other changes and differences between the S4s and previous models that makes it the pinacle of the 4 pot esprits and possibly one of the best overall production models.
Typical excellent handling and positive accurate steering from a Lotus Esprit and the midengined weight balance makes it easy to drive in a spritied manner.
The car has been currently owned for 21 years and stored for the last 15 years.
Numerous historical receipts for work on the car are available that document changes and servicing in the past before storage and recently during renovation from storage to MOT.
Current MOT until June 2025
Some aesthetic and mechanical modifications have been made to the car generally to fix known issues, modernise components or replace hard to find parts.

Priced taking into account known issues repair to a standard state, but buyers could use the opportunity to customise and replace with higher spec options, either for comfortable GT touring spec or a fast road performance option.
