  1. Anyone got a spare few quid?
  2. My old mate Paul (RIP) who owned this would be staggered by that price. Its sitting way taller than the early cars used/should do.
  3. Brilliant - Thanks for sharing Max - yes that was when Paul Dewey owned 017 and when we visited - that's my G HC Turbo behind 017 which I still own 😎
  4. The S3 Turbo looked great in BRG imo - Altair Green was Hazel's favourite iirc for the Elite -
  5. Daft as it sounds Leigh I'd never really noticed the twin Union Jack/Monaco flags on the sidepods - Essex really were at home in Montecarlo 😎
  6. Its now showing on Pistonheads for £95k
  7. Hearing No.017 made £82k at the hammer but didn’t sell.
  8. Driven that car many times - now on Harrys Garage review too (@20:50'sih)
  9. That is exactly what happened with the AutoArt Essex model when Paul had it Leigh. Paul's son bought one as a Christmas present to his Dad and we couldn't believe it even had No.017 on it! AutoArt never reached out despite us believing they used pics of it from when it was shot for the Esprit Book at Coombe a few years earlier so they would've known who the owner was. Not that anyone but Lotus has the copyright I'd presume but still....... got one too and they seem to be fetching alot more nowadays as well.
  10. @Leigh Greenham Presume you have seen these before!
  11. Great footage find Martin - love that era and some brill behind the scenes action though slightly sad to see Elio at Ricard. Thanks for sharing.
  12. Awesome! Not many Esprits still with their original owner - well done
  13. Looks nice - Got the original luggage Brian?
  14. Great to see the car being shown somewhere as prestigious as that. Anyone know which number LHD that one is? I don't have that Reg recorded anywhere?
