If you mean the M100 is not that fast please think again as a Mk 1 standard Esprit barely makes 120 mph and a M100 tops over 130 mph

My Esprit V8 is remapped to 440hp and the M100 won't live with that, but it will go on without any reliability problems for well over 100,000 miles.

Sorry Chris mines too noisy for the track. Will be in the Elise again. I'm sure they'll still be plenty of Esprit around though 😀

Going but lacking 1 Esprit 


Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

I will have to pass on that one as I dont know of anyone who has that mileage on an M100. As far as I have experience of is my first Excel did 150,000 before a rebuild. My first Ford Diesel done 250,000 before rust got it and Ann's Octavia Diesel is currently on 175,000 with no rust problems as yet. Unless yours has that mileage, if so we have another 130K to go.

I am taking my Turbo Esprit. Probably not going on track but I will take my tin can to reduce the db to under 100 in case I change my mind.

No, before you get carried away about speed, who cares? An Esprit is just better looking!
