1300 miles esprit


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

If you have a minute, have a look on, there is a 1986 HCI that was brought over by UK governement for the 1986 Vancouver expo.

The car has believe it or not 1300 miles on it!!

And I thought I had a low mileage car with 20K miles on mine...

The interior colors wouln't be my first choice though ... :thumbsup:



Something I learned about cars or planes, it all works until it doesn't anymore...sometime there is no way around it!

As the car's basically sat for 24 years it'll need work carrying out to it. I guess you'd need to replace the drive shaft seals and there'd be host of other things. I'd say the rubber tyres will have degraded too. Esprit's like being driven.

A stunning classic for the lucky person who will get it. It may need a little work to get back on the road, but, woaw, it just looks fantastic. Damned, shame I don't have the money any more nor the space in the garage!

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Looks amazing and really belongs in a museum or rarely driven collection. I hope whomever buys her has the deep pockets needed to maintain the car to the highest standards she deserves.
