He sold it back in March and it left the country. Those pics are meant to be embargoed but it's been a while so I thought it would be ok to post 'em :blush:

I note in December issue #78 that the next issue is shown as having a feature on the Lotus Esprit. There is a photo showing what looks like a silver Sport 350 and a black late V8.

In a panic at the M3 services I dived into the mags in the car section to find Octane 79.

Bugger!

I have to ask myself - 'do I feel lucky'?

Illi (or Bibs), the rear tires on that beauty look humongous. Are they 295's like the 350?

Killer pics, Illi!thumbsup.gif

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

Did you notice the good looking young blonde driving the 350? :)

No, but I did notice the blonde on page 108 :).

Interesting that they rated the 300 over the 350, saying it was more communicative. And Roger Becker thought the V8 was an engine to far for the Esprit and never got the driving pleasure from the car.
