Ebay (USA) - 1988 Lotus Esprit Turbo

Recommended Posts

Almost lost my lunch when I stumbled upon this vandalized creature:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Lotus-Espri...tem170195418173

The seller says the "Emblems and Batches were added to look more exotic". What?! Okay, stand back... :(

The Esprit is already very exotic - going to Wal*Mart and sticking cheap plastic :D on a rare beauty will not improve it! Few things are tackier than fake portholes. Even worse, the square Maserati-looking ones are stuck on the wrong sides, and in general clash horribly with the different Buick-style oval ones.

Right/left side wheels aren't mounted the same for some reason, the lines are curved opposite direstions.

And as much as I love the Lotus logo, the car does not need two of them stuck on each side! :D

If I had the money, I'd buy it, take the junk off it, and re-sell it. Bet I'd get more bids than he has...

Whew, rant over, off to bed with me :)

What a knob, he needs some lessons in taste, that's awful!

The wheels are correct by the looks :) I've never noticed that before!

OK let's just shoot the F****r who did it.

OH should be, shoot him somewhere death is not quick, but is assured, that way he can understand the suffering he inflicted on anybody that looked at the car.

Wasn't there a red Esprit in Denmark/Norway with Ferrari badges all over it and a cobra for a gearstick?

Holy F***

That is a true abomination. I wouldn't be suprised if the owner has been found swinging from a lamp post.

As for the 3rd one, is he a chav do you think?

Take a look at the eBay seller's other items for sale -- he has ten other cars, all with stickers and badges "to make it more exotic"!!! :)

This guy must be the craziest seller on eBay!

Here are some of his other cars:

...and he really needs to take the soft filter off of the camera lens! It's obnoxious just to look at the pictures, never mind the subjects!
