  1. Hope you got The Esprit back on the Road. I owned it around 1999. I still miss it. One of the best drives ever. I Purchased it from Peter Smith cars , it was around £28K at the time. I believe the colour is from Renault and a one off for Lotus At the time Lotus produced one V8 in Gold & this one in the Blue, with the new revised Interior. The Gold one became a Press car and the Blue one became a mule for testing. Peter had both in stock and I selected the Blue one because it stood out, especially the Interior. It was a great drive, but I always had an issue with vibration at specific revs on certain roads. Never really got to the bottom of it despite several visits back to the workshop. Lack of availability of parts, constantly on back order eventually took its toll and I switched to another manufacturer . Having said that I would buy another V8.
