  1. This S1 is coming up for sale soon at Bonham’s - looks tidy - does anyone know it?
  2. You’ve been spotted again @jonroberts - were you towing the guy on the bike?
  3. Great to meet you guys finally and once up, driving at stupid oclock in the morning is fab!
  4. Hi Chris - I think I should be able to make this, so please add me
  5. New set of Pirelli’s and the sun’s out - the perfect vehicle for some essential shopping - I may be some time
  6. Me too - like buses these white S1s
  7. @Bibs @Sparky @Dan E We shall be discussing this bullying on our weekly Zoom - I have already brought this to the attention of the head of HR, Benny, who is not impressed and takes this sort of thing very seriously
  8. Afternoon folks! I made this little film on the Esprit S1 for a virtual Facebook car show this weekend and thought some of you might be interested in seeing it too. I sent it to MJK before posting and he gave it his blessing, which was quite the honour! Hope you enjoy
  9. Yep! Here's a few more from the shoot - did you clock one of the front sidelights giving up the ghost half way through the shoot!
  10. A little late to this party but here you go - in order of purchase with year of manufacture listed 1996 VW Golf 1.6 mark3 - it worked 1998 MGF - surprisingly fun and super reliable 2002 Lotus Elise S2 - proper fun and only one dead battery 2005 Lotus Elise 111R - great car but got through three front clams courtesy of dreadful London drivers and their parking (first crunch happened the first day I got it with 50 miles on the clock ) 2007 Jaguar XKR - an awesome machine and as fast a car as you’d ever need 1985 Mercedes Benz 280SL - slow, thirsty and wallows but turn key reliable and glorious with the roof off 1976 Fiat 130 Coupe - beautiful to look at and drives very like an old Jaguar with an amazing ride but loves to roll in the corners - gets a huge amount of attention but boy do you have to keep an eye on the bodywork and never get it wet! 1976 Lotus Esprit S1 - love love love this car - iconic IMHO 1978 Porsche 928 - in its purest series 1 form (teledials, no spoilers, pasha trim) - very solid but doesn’t feel super quick and a bit clinical - my least favourite car 1980 Jaguar XJ-S - in its purest pre HE form, it’s surprisingly capable and will happily cruise well above the speed limit if you’re not careful and whenever you stop at lights you have to check the rev gauge as there is zero noise from the V12 - does like to drink though! 1980 Lotus Essex Esprit - just epic and as fast as anything else on the road in the real world even if it’s 40 years old - I will never tire of the turbo whistle when you put your foot down

    James Bond S1

    This BTS pic of the sub looks real to me too
  12. Hi Lex - being pedantic but just to say my car Essex #007 isn’t SORNed but very much taxed and on the road
  13. Many of you I’m sure know this but I just saw that Lotus Cars’ PR team posted this explanation on Twitter .....
  14. As the real things are in lockdown, I've been trying to recreate pix with my models!
