[SOLD] 1996 V8 for sale


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine is selling his 1996 V8 Esprit. He's had Esprits for 18 years now and fancies a change so here's your chance to own this beautiful car.

It's a 1996, one of the cars produced as company cars for the Bugatti directors so was originally LHD however it's been converted to RHD and a MPH speedo fitted. The old KPH speedo is present with 15k on it so the car has covered less than 30,000 miles in total. A set of carpets is required to complete the interior but other than that the car is perfect.

Liner work has been done, a recent (days ago) cam belt change carried out. I've known the owner of this car and the car for a couple of years and personally vouch for it, you may have seen this car in my pics of Le Mans last year. Cliff is a superb driver and looks after his cars with the utmost care. He's a professional master mechanic, has built Esprit's to race (including V8 engines for them) and in fact has worked on other V8's in a professional capacity. This car is mint.

Think its always good to get good Esprits on LEF/LEW for sale first so we can always have first look.

However, IMO If that is put on Pistonheads at that price, would be gone in 24 hours.

i guess i have quite a bit of experience having sold 2 esprits in the last year.....but (and i hope i'm wrong - dont get me wrong) unless there is someone with the money just waiting around for that particular car, its still a buyers market....and i think you would all (unfortunately :P ) be very surprised at how difficult it is to shift even such a good looking (if u like green) and great value, well looked after car.......

we are few and far between us esprit fanatics i'm afraid......

anyway good luck to ur buddy Bibs in selling his motor...hope it turns out good for him.... :)

((in fact it occurs to me i've sold 4 esprits over the years now :( and what a folly all of them....thing is its all i really want and all i'll ever want short of winnning the lottery etc...off to sulk now sry))

is it really an 'transformed' LHD car !? As it looks as if there was never an hole drilled for wiper-motor mounting points, relay section and so on... .

Or was that all 're-laminated' and over-sprayed !?

Anyway, imagine -as the pound does fall into the deepness ->17k Euros (or less :respect: ) for an V8 !

Bibs told us last week or so -car is still available.

*streetz* ??? Hey, is a small world :)

But notice: My carport is full with my own V8, and i have now an wrecked Elise S1 together with the Esprit. So not much space in the garden left ... . :)

And by the way, we need an steering rack, dashboard, pipes & hoses , some reweld work on the frame and other bits and pieces to [re]transform that car into an *Berlin ready* LHD boy-racer :)
