  1. Hi everyone, fantastic to see the thread, brilliant car. The car with the original Marina door handles was the motor show car if I remember correctly? Back in the early 90s pretty certain it was for sale at London Lotus centre in Chiswell Green. We knew the MD of the dealership from the village pub and I loved lotus so much I did my A-Level business studies project on the dealer and ended up working there on reception during school hols while ther receptonist was on leave, which as a 17yr old surrounding by Esprit was obviously great. Pretty sure it or another sport 300 was displayed so sold and about to be shipped to Japan. After the original show car was shown, Lotus then announced the Esprit S4 and the 300 received similar updates so recall being told only one like that or at least not many. They seemed to have a great relationship with Hethel and get all the management cars to sell on. Great to see the Carfection video, the Esprit deserves more recognition other than those in the know and Hollywood and if had a Porsche badge surely be worth significant 6 figure sum.
