Just wanted to say hello - recently  bought a JPS Esprit as a restoration project so imagine I will be spending quite a bit of time on here asking questions ...

Hi - it is domestic no. 44 . Been found in quite a few barns over the years it appears .

Haven't seen the car yet ... so limited pics . Needs body/engine and interior sorting, chassis has been done  . 

Do most people keep the engines standard in these cars ?

Most of it is in boxes and it has been off the road since the 1990's  through various owners .

Bibs - I've found out quite a bit of the history from here , old adverts etc . In 2016 Tocus had it, restored the chassis and suspension but sold it on - it has not moved since. 

Perhaps Tocus has some more info on the car?

As a teenager my neighbour had one, remember going round a roundabout at warp speed ... his caught  fire....  

I've never driven one or thought that I'd own one, but it will join an s1 Elise and others in the garage :)

Welcome to TLF.

It's a great livery. These days, it is probably politically incorrect being after a cigarette brand.

Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :)

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.
