Yes Roy - I think there were 15 'official' LHD Essex cars including three development ones. 

This is one - came up on YT years ago though not sure which number it is.......

Ahh - was it one of those Jim Loose cars? Roy if you look back to Page 6 on this thread you will some info about the LHD Essex cars registered to Essex Petroleum - 

Essex Motorsport took delivery of Export Essex's (LHD) numbers 002 and 007 - the latter believed to be Thiemes own personal car and still thought to be in his possession somewhere locked away in Paris - so that Essex is one of those two - Chassis SCCFC20A0AHH10302 (LHD - 002) or SCCFC20A0AHH10303 (LHD - 007).

Forget the 3 development cars they're a can of worms and pencil in 8 LHD Essex Turbo's including LHD 007 which is suppose to be owned by Mr. Theime if he's still around but never confirmed.

I am still amazed that we have still not found or seen any images of Mr Thieme post 1981/2 imprisonment and subsequent release. All I aware of was that he has a place in Paris and possibly Monaco still.............

Unless he really is Hugo Drax!

Found a couple of interesting ones on Twitter - Thieme's Cessna Citation 500 -

and - I think we mentioned about this a while ago but this thread has been going so long I can;t remember! 😝  British GP and Brands 1980 - not quite Essex but this is the Red Arrows Display that (I think?) blew off the cover on the Essex hospitality bus............ and probably Mr Thieme's Panama Hat! - they would never get away with that now!
