Hello From Sunny Scottsdale, Arizona

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My name is Tal and I am looking for a 98 Esprit V8. I did some readying about the car and trying to get as much information as I can before I get it. I realy like the way the inside looks on the 98+ Espries. Always loved the way the looked and wanted to get one since I saw the Bond movie "For your eyes only".

any advise on how to find the "right" one? Any easy way to sort the bad apple for the rest?

Thanks and hello

Tal

Scan through the last few pages in Newbies section and you'll find several previous threads on broadly similar themes that may help too.

Welcome Tal,

As you will need a LH version, here is a link to the German V8-98 market.

The prices are quite steep at the moment due to the strong Euro, but at least it increases the market portfolio

Good luck with you hunt

Hi Tal -

Call Harry Appleby at Viking Motor Sports (Costa Mesa California) he's probably the premier Esprit mechanic in the US, and if one of his customers has a good car for sale he'll know. There was a really fast black 98 with tan interior at his shop a while back, I think the owner was asking $35-40K or something in that range. What ever you buy have it inspected!

fmxa,

Thanks for the information and I will give Harry Appleby a call today since I have any eye on a 2000 V8 with 30K miles and a new clutch just put in. The problem is that the car is in the east coast and it will be hard to get it over there for a PPI.

I will call him and ask his opinion.

Thanks again.

Tal
