Hello, I have been looking for a new car to drive around on the weekends and came across this on eBay.
1998 Lotus Esprit | eBay
I was wondering if I am missing something or is this a pretty good deal? I can't find a lot of information on the "R3" trim and the nitrous worries me of course. What else can I expect or lookout for? Should I stay away? This thing looks gnarly.
Here is the description:
VIN# - SCCDC0822WHA15576
MILES – 62577
