Cigar Lighter Identification

Recommended Posts

Hi Chaps,

I have been given some cigar lighters by and Ex-Lotus Engineer who thinks they are original early Esprit fitment but can't remember exactly. Can anyone confirm from the photos? The markings say MADE IN GERMANY 12V GEPRÜFT

My S2 has an aftermarket one fitted so I can't compare. I only have the lighters, not the housing but if anyone needs one they might be for sale.

@pbharcourtI'll try and remember to bring one to the next gathering Paul and you can see if it's a match. I'm away next week so hopefully June.

Here a couple of photos of my old 1976 Eclat lighter, so slightly different. - 2 smoke 'curls' and a metal body.

Here’s mine from an ‘82 Turbo - look to be the same. If you’ve got any spare I’ll take one off you if you let me know how much as the paint has rubbed off a bit on the drivers one

On closer inspection the writing on the side is different - Geproft is written on mine. Look to be the same to me though.

If anyones desperate for a lighter and would consider a 'dummy' one that doesn't work, or actually wants a concealed pill box (if we have any drug traffickers on here perhaps ! ) these are for sale on eBay. Look a bit similar. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-Cigarette-Lighter-Stash-Storage-Pill-Box-Safe-Compartment-Cash-Holder-Key/383209263820?hash=item59390d52cc%3Ag%3Az3gAAOSwDCldoxo6&LH_BIN=1
