Performance Clutches for 4 cylinder Esprits with Renault UN-1 transaxle MY88-99

These clutches are a must have, much cheaper than the OEM unit yet stronger, they will last much longer !

For Esprit S, SE, S4, GT3

+35% Torque € 599,–

For Esprit V8 only
Original AP Twin Plate V8 Clutch Kit € 1990,–

- This is THE original AP Twin Plate Clutch (= Twin Plates, two Discs, release bearing, clamp and spring)
- See original parts manual #45 + #44 + #49 below
- Straight original replacement for all V8 Esprits with twin plate clutch (JFYI, all V8 Esprits should have the AP twin plate clutch installed except some very early MY96 V8s that came with a single plate unit. But for these early V8 cars there was a conversion program launched by Lotus around 20 years ago. What I wanted to tell is that I donot know any Esprit V8 that still has the single plate unit installed ;-)


 

 

Steel Flex Braided Clutch Hose


SS Clutch line € 124,–

The Esprit has a plastic clutch hose installed from factory. This is called the famous "red hose". So is the "famous red hose syndrome" :o(
The plastic line tends to expand when its getting warm/hot. As a result, the clutch doesn't fully disengage, yielding to grinding during gear shifts.
With our braided hose you get rid of the "red hose syndrome".

We know it's not the cheapest clutch line out there, but we wanted this kit to use the best available stainless steel brake line material, to provide your Esprit with the best quality and most durable product. We do believe that because the Esprit is the best road car in the world, it consequently also deserves the best products !! :o)

- Replaces the "famous" red plastic hose
- No more clutch issues with heat expanding "red hose" and grinding gears
- Protects your gears and your tranny
- Must have for all Esprit owners, unless you live in Scandinavia ;o)
- Very easy to install
- Made from the highest quality stainless steel brake line material
- Ensure optimum operation in all conditions
- Will last forever
