Ex-Dany Bahar Lotus Esprit for sale

A specially fettled Lotus Esprit V8, built for Dany Bahar, has come on the market.

In 2010 during Dany Bahar’s reign as CEO of Lotus, he commissioned the factory to extensively rebuild a 2002 Lotus Esprit V8, and according to The Lotus Forums, it’s for sale.

The factory work included a fully rebuilt engine and gearbox, full respray in pearlescent white, and a unique re-trimmed leather and suede interior – all done less than 1000 miles ago.
