Missing the undertray?

Serious $ figure though.

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

It's nice to see an Esprit get the appreciation it deserves. But at those prices, I fear there's not much chance of the car actually begin driven and enjoyed, more likely to sit tucked away in some garage until it again needs a lot of new parts just to get it running. Unless it was bought by someone like Harry of course. 🙂  

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Well, that's encouraging. I just paid $78K for a '97 V8 in mint condition, except that it has been stored for a long time and needs some work. I'll probably be into it for $90K when all is said and done (probably $100K including taxes and registration and the shipping costs to get it here, etc.) I expect to drive it daily. Sad that so many of these never see the light of day.  Once I feel comfortable with driving it and its reliability I will probably get rid of my daily driver car.

Yes, but that one has got a 5.2l V8 :rolleyes:
