  1. Its now showing on Pistonheads for £95k
  2. Hearing No.017 made £82k at the hammer but didn’t sell.
  3. Driven that car many times - now on Harrys Garage review too (@20:50'sih)
  4. 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.
  5. @Leigh Greenham Presume you have seen these before!
  6. 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.
  7. Awesome! Not many Esprits still with their original owner - well done
  8. Looks nice - Got the original luggage Brian?
  9. 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?
  10. Ohh dear - whats happening to them now then - Did any of them sell?
  11. Bazza I bow to your expertise - what's been done wrong with it with the resto?
  12. That interior Pic is of Paul's 017 car which is the one in the auction - It was from the Classic Car magazine's Esprit test in '96 - I remember he wasn't happy the picture made the leather look more lip-gloss red than it was when published. Also that's Paul's son who inherited the Essex pictured riding in James Grantham's test and development G car wearing X180 alloys, with Paul driving 017 behind.......
  13. Great to 'see' you still on here Leigh - I still love your car. The Elite seems to have really come of age now................ Stay well
