  7. I have always liked the 911, but this photo is a good reminder of why I like the Esprit more.
  8. Congrats! Beautiful car, and as iconic as Turbo Esprits get! Don't worry about the price -- there is a saying among buyers of old Ferraris that I think applies here: "There's no such thing as overpaying for it; only buying it a bit soon." 😁
  9. Holy moly -- another S1 owner in northern Ohio!!! β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜πŸ˜ƒ PM sent!
  10. Hi Mark, The S2.2 needed to be "federalized" when it was imported to the US. Typically that meant adding compliant bumpers, side makers, headlights, catalyst, and sometimes other safety or emissions equipment. However having seen many "grey market" cars from the 1980s over the years, regulations were not always consistently adhered to. This S2.2 received federal front bumper and side marker lamps, but for whatever reason kept its original rear bumper and does not have a catalyst. The importation tag on the door jamb identifies the car as Turbo Esprit (LOL) brought in a personal import in 1983. The Investor Special is 100% original paint and interior except that the rear bumper has been resprayed. The two-tone grey and silver was the standard color scheme for the Investor cars, but they could be specified to any color combination the investor chose. So a lot of them are grey/silver, but there are plenty in other colors. This one is Jupiter Red with black Connolly leather interior. Tony
  11. Hey Roy, Great to hear from you again! I know we were chatting a while back and lost touch. Yes, I am very lucky to have that S2.2. There were never any Federal S2.2s; officially, none were imported to the US. This car was brought in as a personal import in 1983. It might be the only S2.2 in North America. It is also left-hand drive, which only a small number of S2.2s were. I was looking for an S1 when it turned up, and I figured I would never have the chance again, so I jumped on it immediately. Yes, it would be great to meet some time! -Tony

  13. Hello all, Been a while since I have posted. Pictured are: S1 chassis 355H S2.2 chassis 324J Turbo Esprit Investor Edition #03 Tony K.
  14. Hi S22fan, 324J is the chassis number of an Esprit S2.2 that I own. It is a RoW car, left hand drive, and was imported to the U.S. in the early 1980s. What do you mean by what brand is it? (By the way, might be better to message me than take this thread off course!) Cheers, Tony K.
  15. Hi Giovanni, If you haven't gotten it adjusted yet, in addition to Paul's video, take a look at this thread: Cheers, Tony K
