Hello from Italy

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, my name is Italo and I've always admired the lotus engineering ethos in road and sportscar design.

I live 5km from the Monza race circuit, and go often to watch classic and sportcar racing events.

I also like bespoke and specialist sportscars and kitcars, and with a few friends we're in the process of building our bespoke seven replica inspired sportscar design.

One day I would love to have a classic Esprit, but for now I will have to just dream about it......:)

Ciao

Italo

No I don't like the Europa, Evora or Exos.

You're a lucky devil, Italo, it must be great being so close to Monza!!

Good luck with the Seven thing, hope you get an Esprit one day, your work building it will come in handy when maintaining the Esprit ;-)

Great location to live Italo. If it wasn't for the Seven I don't think Lotus would be what it is today, that car gave it a great road-car reputation and even selling the designs on brought money in to build the Europa which then was replaced by the Esprit, so starting with a Seven styled car is a sensible starting point, yo can go to a covered in car later on, just enjoy the open topped car in the great weather.

Welcome to the forum, Italo.

This is a good place to learn about the Esprit to decide which one you want and to make sure, that when the time comes, you buy a good one.

I would like to thank you all for the very warm welcome in this forum...... :) , and will try to save for my dream lotus Esprit, or go wild and create my own version of a modern Esprit design........

Benvenuto Italo.

One day your dream will come true.

Grazie Brian.... :)

Good luck with the Seven thing, hope you get an Esprit one day, your work building it will come in handy when maintaining the Esprit ;-)

Thanks Dom, will sure have some experience after we're done with the seven, to move towards more complex sportscars.....
