  1. £47k for an S4S is prohibitively expensive, yes they are the pinnacle of the S4 development and on the rare side, but £47k is optimistic to say the least, esp when there are 2 x V8, £35k and £38k, the latter with an engine rebuild. Bauke has a nice yellow S4S in the NL, no connection to me and it’s RHD, maybe worth getting in touch?
  2. This one is down the road from me, I can walk there in a few mins.. let me know if you’d like me to take a look.
  3. Attached (if it works) is an image of the underside of the RED S4S for sale. I’d very much like this one but the Exige S gets in the way (and the Mrs wouldn’t be too pleased).
  4. Well I really don’t know what to make of it for the money. If I was in the market for an esprit Id certainly walk away - but then I’m not wanting to do my own mechanics / restoration. Got a ton of photos - pm / txt me an email address and I’ll send them across: 07921 889025, [email protected] - respray look ok, you can see where it’s been masked off in some places, and some slight peeling where it’s been masked at the front bumper. - top corners of the windscreen you can see the seal isn’t correct and some paint. - drivers door lock didn’t lock, looks to have been for
  5. don’t know the history sorry but I’m only 20 minutes away. I should be able to take a look one day this week.
  6. White Esprit SE parked outside Allon White (Cranfield) this morning. gorgeous looking!
  7. Had a failure on a C350E, 2YO and 25k Miles as I was entering a car park at Heathrow. tried the sealant gunk (in the hope I had a nail) but the tyre had blown the inner sidewall so it came out as quick as it went in. long story short - Mercedes (RAC) recovered the car from short stay, took it to the valet parking place where the parking company sorted a set of tyres.
  8. Looks a wonderful car but I’m sure it was resprayed, can’t recall the original colour which was mentioned in the ad.
  9. There’s a motor manufacturer in Crewkerne who may also be able to help. They used to wind their own coils and assemble gear boxes on site. http://www.rotalink.com/our-products/8/dc-motors-optional-gearboxes.html
  10. Hi, I prevoiusly owned a Turbo Esprit, E666 TAH, an early Stevens Turbo in Yellow, apparently one of the show cars from Camel Racing sponsorship, the last time I saw it was on Ebay 2-3 Yrs ago and Cat C. So having seen this come up for sale with reg E666 HSG, I was wondering was there anything special about E666, or just a Reg assigned to a couple of Lotus Esprit http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/183201512274?clk_rvr_id=1515825706132&lgeo=1&vectorid=229508&testparam2=testvalue2_replaced&item=183201512274&testparam3=testvalue3&rmvSB=true
  11. Starlight black - one showing a set of bike wheel bags (not giant Bertie bassets) reflecting off the front clam, the 2nd showing light reflecting through the garage.
  12. Wow, wasn't this offered for sale at a recent auction? Sorry, here's the link https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/esprit/lotus-lotus-esp-tbo-s4----------------1994/7426298
  13. Wow thats empty! Bet you enjoyed helping yourself to more than a couple of glasses :0)
  14. Has anyone been to see this car to understand why it doesn't sell? It's been around for a long old time https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/esprit/lotus-esprit-s3-1984-a-great-appreciating-classic-recent-full-rebuild/4842054
  15. And UK Sports Cars increase the pricing. I'm sure this was sub £30k, then £32995 and now showing £33995.
