Hi folks , as im in new zealand its a bit tricky to get a serious handle on what represents a fair value for a good gt3 , which we would like to bring to nz ,would love a heads up from some of the "locals" and maybe a pointer as to whos a trust worth dealer as i will be off loading a pile of cash for something ive never seen to a guy ive never met !!!

Three key things to look for: Full documented service history with no/few gaps... These cars need regular, annual care without skimping. Large pile of receipts for the things that need doing

Hi Johnny and welcome. GT3's seem to range from £25 to £40k at present. It's unusual for Esprit's to be sold at dealers other than the usual suspects who will have been in the game with Lotus for a long time so it'd probably be easier if you see a car, to post it on here and we can give you an appraisal of the car and the dealer. You may even find the PO on here or a local member willing to go and have a look for you :)

thanks for the reply Bibs  , i would love to chat to a gt3 owner or any one who has had a later model esprit , as an esprit virgin i have read a lot but never really heard it from the horses mouth !!  ive only ever seen 2 esprit in nz, managed to get a short ride in one and i was hooked but that was years ago...  i have seen the offerings on the uk sports cars in kent site, who seem to be reputable , esprits seem to be increasing in value at a rapid rate , do owners advertise cars on this site ?, am i right in thinking at the moment as the uk is in lock down no one is supposed to be traveling unnecessarily ?   .  regards  john g

There's a link to the classifieds in the menu at the top of the page but you're right, there aren't as many Esprit's as I'd usually expect.

Being a Canadian stuck in NZ with my own Esprit back home tucked in for winter and enjoying the NZ Lotus Club here - I have been looking at Australia for a possible clean car - there are a few GT3's I have seen lately for sale in Ozzy.
