ACBC's Esprit - For Sale

Good question. I know they did work on the ventilation for Chapman with special pollen filters etc, as he suffered from bad Hay fever so this could have been that extra ventilation specially for him.

Would be good if @Bazza 907 could confirm on what the Essex model has?

I’ve just checked mine and both sides of the roof surround (rear panel above window) are actually shaped and I’d never noticed before, but there are no vents so think your suggestion could be correct.  @stradman Did you request an archive certificate/build spec sheet for the car from Andy Graham in Lotus Archive Dept? Would be interesting to know what records they have on the car.

Hi Gents,  Car has been sold back to Lotus now and will eventually become part of their museum after a very light sympathetic restoration as well as use for some marketing and publicity purposes.

That's a cracking idea, would be ace to be back where it belongs!

@nello - yes, this one

Fab news that it is heading to Hethel. The factory will be thrilled. Well done all.
