  1. Hiya John Wow, that's a surprise. Someone actually asking about the Babe :-) I finished it and she got sold to a real enthusiast in Belgium who will finish where I have left off. Once we had our second daughter, I hardly drove her and also due the my workload in the company my days behind the wheel were counted. If you PM me, I can send you the email of the buyer so you can follow up It is really hard to combine work and pleasure if you are self employed with a family so eventually there was only one car left that could do it all. Dropping the kids off at school a
  2. Lotus Esprit S4 (1995) Date Added: 10 July 2007 - 04:03 PM Owner: Fandango Short Description: I had to wait 29 years for my first Esprit, but it was worth it !! Not only that it once was factory delivered with a V8 shade, which is special, the engine was highly tuned in 1996 by Alvan Motors in Belgium in cooperation with Lotus engineering. The engine was probably a earlier version of the factory X180R race car versions (Lotus project Nr P525), able to put out 420 HP and was one of 3 engines where 2 were raced in GT series Esprits. Unfortunately the engine blew up due to a leaking oil ho
  3. I don't have a nickname but when asked about it, I call her my " English Patient" due to the many mods I had done so far :-)
  4. I want the spirit back, the marque had in the 70s when the Esprit came out Exotic, rare and potent. Combine that with a superb build quality aka Audi and you got a winner again. No more Go Karts !!
  5. After all the mods I have done, and the ones which I need to do yet, I only refer to her as The English Patient
  6. They should add empire green yet and let's not forget the tasty norfolk mustard yellow for the Esprit
  7. Speed limits produce bad cars Speed limits produce bad drivers Speed limits will not increase safety Speeding fines are a firm part of every community's annual budget to help compensate for incompetent monetary management ...and worst of all : These waylayers are not seen in front of schools or Kindergardens where it is necessary NO, they ambush us during shift changeovers alongside dual carriage ways when we rush homewards after a long workday.
  8. Well, maybe Lotus wants to leave some room for future developements Never shoot all you bullets on a new product.
  9. If HWA is one of the obstetricians of this new engine, it's going to be a success. It was the most important thing left for Lotus to become a serious car manufacturer with a secured future. Can't wait to test drive the new Esprit
  10. Old wine - young women - fast cars : The 3 essentials in life If you have a G car in mind to tune, it's even easier. If you are lucky you can obtain a H plaque which is reserved for historic cars, older than 25 years I believe
  11. Absolutely right Günter Concentrate on the "inner values" when you tune your Esprit, as the outside is spectacular enough And besides, I guess all of us here are far away from pubescent hot hatch teenagers
  12. Nic Since the Esprit is a rather exotic model amongst all the registered super car models here in Germany, the TÜV can't really verify if your car is modified or not. Lotus has not even required about a so called "Fahrzeugchlüssel" ( model key code ) when applying for a ABE ( Type approval ) here in Germany The TÜV has generally nothing to compare your car with due to the rarity of the model. One could try to have all engine mods blessed by the TÜV but this could take ages here in Germany, if at all. Besides there are TÜV sections which are more donnish than others. I just had the proble
  13. At last, I have finally found a company that is caspable and willing to dyno my car properly. They develop, manufacture and sell their dynos to tuning firms exclusively. Normally they do not accept end user requests for dynoing. But the owner likes the Esprit so much that he invited my to a session, using their latest development. Here is a link to GRIP, a german online car magazine which uses this dyno on various plus 700 hp super cars. My Esprit will be used in another promo video of the company. Feeling very lucky, indeed I shall post my results here immediately after I have the re
  14. Good PR but the bloke drives the Evora like a stinking Caprice Classic. Not the full monty in my opinion
