Lotus Esprit V8 (1996-1998)
Without any doubt, the best car I've owned. And getting better with use! After looking at a few cars over the previous year, I finally came across this one in my favourite Azure blue. Although it had only covered a few hundred miles in the last four years, it appeared to have no major issues, so after a bit of hagleing and getting the L30TUS in the deal, I parted with the cash and took the car as it was, no service and no MOT.
So here she is new cambelts, tyres and a good thorough service and check over have given me 1500 miles so far this year, of he most enjoyment you can have with your clothes on. She is in very good nick for her age, but not perfect, and there are a few issues that need sorting, auxiliary shaft play being one, so I'm looking forward to this ongoing project, if I wasn't, I wouldn't have bought an Esprit.
