Sport 350 Owners Now year 2020


Recommended Posts

Ok So if you are new to the Sport 350 ownership with these fantastic cars approximately  85 kg lighter than a normal UK car Welcome , if like me you still have yours that's Brilliant.

Well guys I don't come out to play as one would have said as a young lad, meaning now I'm the opposite end of young as in Old Fart. So it's the first time back on these pages for a long time.

Please confirm that You Own one of these cars again now !... Here now !  & also  my dedicated address is .......    [email protected] and questions etc.

In the UK now there is roughly 15 cars left of which 7/8 are road worthy, mine is Mot's/insured  but, the body is a bit naf so can't really drive it properly now. that is a 19 year spoilt love affair.  I have maintained my own car  since the warranty ran out in 2003, so I guess (hope) I know a bit about the way they were built and how to do jobs.

Some hard  facts. 55 cars built (00 included was the development car) 8 USA 8 Japan. 2/3  in Europe. ( I ran the registry for the factory for Brian Angus)

from memory now there are 3 cars in New Zealand and 2 in Australia (Melbourne & Sydney). regards Rob

I'm owner of Sport 350 #007 since 2012. Used it as a daily driver between 2012 to 2014 which eventually led to some very expensive repairs but hey, the car is to be enjoyed isn't it? Sadly it has been

Ah yes, I recognise the number plate of the previous owner who I understand had a small collection of Esprits. This car has certainly been well loved and will shortly become a globe trotter. Interesti

Hi Rob,

Good to see you on these pages. I still have mine, #29 or is it #26?? I'll have to go and check, senior moments coming thick and fast. It's not MOTd at the moment but I will sort that out soon.

BTW you might want to consider changing the title of this topic to "Esprit Sport 350 Owners Now year 2020", it can get confusing since they launched the Exige Sport 350, a great car I am sure but we know it's not as special as the Esprit Sport 350. 🙂 

cheers

-Chris

Welcome Peter!

I put a good few miles on your car before you owned it! It was a hell of a lot of fun :thumbsup:

Ah yes, I recognise the number plate of the previous owner who I understand had a small collection of Esprits. This car has certainly been well loved and will shortly become a globe trotter. Interestingly a year or so ago I got in touch with a Lotus owners group in Queensland Australia just to sound out whether it was going to be practical bringing an Esprit into Australia. I was a little concerned what I would do if I had serious technical problems. Turns out there is a good community over there and the chap that wrote back to me appears to have previously owned the garage that now looks after the car whilst it has been SORN.

Looking forward to getting back in the car and enjoying some of the winding mountain roads where I'll be moving to.
