Keep up the great work Bibs. Thanks!

2002 espirt v8  25th anniversary #63 Chrome Orange  sccdc08272ha10397 picked it up from koons chevy dealership in virginia - supposedly traded in on a c6 vette? now it lives at it's forever

2003 Cobalt Blue Esprit V8 SE (one of the Last 15 UK cars - with glovebox plaque)

Chassis No: SCCDA08283HC10504

Any ideas how many of these are left in the UK (or anywhere)? I see that one is in Australia now (previous page). I presume Dan Collins still has his JPS one? Interested to hear the whereabouts of the others.

 

But remember one thing: don't lose your head to a woman that'll spend your bread: Lotus Turbo Esprit (89-11); Lotus Esprit GT3 (12-14): Lotus Evora S (14-17); Lotus Esprit V8 SE "UK Last 15" (18-...)

May be old news but I was talking to UK Sports Cars (Canterbury) and they told me the Esprit Sport 350 No 009 they have for sale is being exported to Australia (probably on the boat now).

I was perusing the ever interesting How Many Left? site and wondered how many V8s were still around. This might well have been done before but I also looked back to the various web sites that cover production and knocked this up:

565745aab04fd_EspritV8NumbersQ22015.jpg.

So in summary, 1,502 V8s were made, 262 stayed in the UK, of which there's 169 on the road and it looks as though we have only lost 6?

Interesting :)

This could be done for the other models as well, but I can't be stuffed :P

Something of a thread dig I know but.....but the table above suggests GT3 is a 2.2ltr. I thought GT3 was a 2 litre?

Where do I find the complete list? 

I think I understand that Bibs is the owner and only authorized editor of data - therefore this thread, but I assume there is a copy of the file somewhere for reference and browsing?

Hi Peter, I am in Twyford. Perhaps we could meet up some time? My GT3 is going in for an ABS replacement at the beginning of September so anytime after that if you are interested.
