  2. I know I m a bit late, but is there room for one more or to go on reserve list if someone cant make it on the day? Will be a 1985 Turbo Esprit, Peal white with a handful of reliability Mods......
  3. Today, was on way to an appointment and spotted a Red early stevens, poss SE, with later s4/v8 style rear spoiler. It Was outside The Standlake garage at about midday, looked very nice and shiny
  4. I wonder who this one might belong to. If anyone didn't see it, Classiccars show Ch 5 ~(7pm Tue) with Quentin Wilson and Jodie Kidd. The Car was used as part of something they did on the 928. they tied it in with an old arcade game from the 80s based on you driving a 928 police car, bashing the hell out of the baddies in a Turbo esprit. I never did manage to get past the next level to that there was a quick glimpse of a white early turbo, then it went into a cartoon sequence. Good to see the esprit on telly again..
  5. Yep, spotted travelling from Layburn to Bellaby, Yorkshire. looked like an early stevens, late morning. I was on way to Layburn ina black Xtype estate.
  6. Apparently the good news is, the Esprit may be still alive, in fact all three of them might be. Held up in a Police Compound it seems. Seach for: 'Top Gear Patagonia Special what happened to the three cars that were left behind ' There's a link on there that takes you to an Argentine Local article and it shows two pictures of the cars. Sorry, couldn't get the link to work at all for this. Anyone for a covert rescue Perhaps that could be the next Topgear special...
