Esprit Production Figures Lotusespritworlddotcom Displays a Factory Excel Spreadsheet of figures for Esprit Production from 1976 to production end. This is the same file one could find in the factory, used to keep a record of production numbers. It's not perfect, as it doesn't give figures for every different model, but does give a yearly figure for most of the different engine types. You'll see what I mean as you read on. These figures are the closest you'll get to finding out the official numbers of Esprits made. At the end of production in February 2004, Lotus had made only 10,675 Esprits over a 28 year period with an average of only 381 Esprits made each year. Remember, that figures for the whole world, with Esprits being shipped from Norfolk to Europe and America. Only when you start looking at the production figure to you real see just how rare Esprits are. Consider that the most made in one year is 1058 in 1988. Which is low, but considering over the rest of the 26 years, yearly figure only topped 500 on 5 occasions and with these numbers spread across the world, I'm surprised anyone's ever seen one! 10,675 Esprits that have been made in total, we would have lost quite a few from crashes, engine fires and generally wear. I guess there are only around 9,000 Esprits in the World. A truly rare automobile. Production of the Esprit finally finished on 20th February 2004 when the last car was past from Production to Sales. 1998 Shows a TOTAL OF 301 ESPRITS WITH ONLY A MERE 142 V8s.. IF BROKEN DOWN BY COLOR COMBINATION, THIS IS A VERY RARE LOW PRODUCTION CAR! Call us with any questions..
