Essex Esprits

Recommended Posts

Just been reading this months Classic Motoring magazine which has a feature on the Esprit (nice pic of GBO4W) According to them 57 Essex Esprits were made (really?) apparently running old Triumph suspension, is this right?

Yes, as do all S3s/Turbos until 1984/85.   Those Triumph uprights/trunnions have been used on many many thousands of low production sports cars, including TVRs/Elans/Sevens etc.   Pretty high maintenance but get the job done...

Didn't know that, guess because mine is a 1986 model, but I'm sure that only between 20/30 Essex's were made including number 100

Where's Bazza when you need him..
