@Bibs Indeed it would but I couldn't afford the handbag that such a purchase would require.. 

You reckon that he’d fit in it??!? He even struggled to fit into single seaters when he was supposedly in his prime.

Yes Sir. Indeed I would. That wing looks superb there on THAT car! :)

I do admit I am not a huge fan of big spoilers as they, errm, spoil the car!

I love my 410 Sport, the GT410, the Esprit S1/S2 and S3, and the Esprit GT3 - I love them as the ducktail just gives them such a classic look, obviously my subjective opinion.

The only Esprit I would have with a wing on it is the Sport 350, but even then I'd be tempted to remove it. I HATE all the other spoilers on the Esprits.

There is a trend, as I also love the ducktail type spoilers on the RS200, Manta GTE's, GT40's, Lancia 037's etc.  I've just got a ducktail fetish!  :ph34r:

 

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

The wing on the 350 sport is possibly my least favourite of the esprit variants (not too keen on the v8 one that hangs out the back)

What about fitting this - the ducks could land on both these.
