  1. Web site is Officially recognised by Lotus
  2. Hi Sport 350 Lovers The complete and official register of Sport 350 cars can be seen at Regards & best wishes David Frost
  3. With regards to #9. Just looking at my records and I see Taran did sell this car to John McCrae.
  4. Just to let you know (In case you didn't know already) a few Sport 350's have changed hands. #2, previously owned by Mike Sekinger has now moved to Germany to a preson who wishes to remain anonymous. #14, previously owned by Nick Holden and now owned by Allan Uber (Australia). #32, reviously owned by Daniel Waugh and now owned by Mike Sekinger. The only one that I know of that is still for sale is #9. regards & best wishes David
  5. The fact is - there are only 7 Sport 350's in the USA. Number 5 (Black in colour) was destroyed by fire. This model was salvaged and parts from this were used to build another Esprit, but it was not built as a Sport 350 and is not the car you have bought. I have full details on USA Sport 350 number 5 and know what happened to it. There is not much point giving out your vin number because all Sport 350's in the USA are accounted for.
  6. Following a tip off by Frank Hirsbrunner, we have now located car number 30. Number 30 has been off the radar for a long time, but has now reared it's head and surfaced in a Switzerland Lotus Dealers showrom. Pfenninger Garagen AG Lotus - Center Heinrich Pfenninger / Melanie K
  7. The cars that went to Japan are : 12, 31, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37 & 38 The track cars were 33, 34, 35 & 37.
  8. It might be a bit picky not to include the prototype as a Sport 350. It is liveried up as a Sport 350 and I am sure that the new owner would view it as a Sport 350. If you knocked the prototype off my list of 47, you would end up with 46. My records show all the Japanese cars have build numbers that fall in with the production run of cars that make up the Sport 350 numbers. I'll stick with my records which came direct from Lotus and have been verified by Lotus. They provided all the build numbers, vin numbers and engine numbers. Regards
  9. Official figures are as follows : 47 Sport 350's were produced for the UK market. This includes the prototype # 000. Of these 47 cars, 8 are in Japan, 3 are in Switzerland, 1 is in Belgium, 1 is in Austria, 1 is in Germany & 1 is in New Zealand. The last Sport 350 produced was #046. There is a #50, but this was actually built 22nd on the production line and badged as # 050 as a special request. There were 8 seperate Sport 350's made especially for the USA market, 4 black and 4 silver, but these all had the red engine covers - as opposed to our UK blue ones. Of the 8 USA models # 005 (a black model) was destroyed by fire. The majority of UK cars are Silver in colour, but there are also 2 white ones, 3 black and 1 blue one. Regards Dave

  16. Yes, this is exactly what several Lotus mechanics have told me, on how to expedite the ECU on re-learning.
  17. I'm having an OS2 sensor problem in MY '00 V8. It began with a trouble code that I pulled with a friends scanner. The code did not generate an MIL light. After I had the car checked at the Lotus dealer, the MIL light came on. Now it comes on every other day. I have a scanner, so I have checked the code, but no code is displayed. Are there malfunctions that give you an MIL light, but no trouble code? -- Ed
