Just a heads up for all esprit enthusiasts, I am extremely reluctantly selling Essex 007, would love it to go to a forum member but in reality I can't be afford to be too choosy, if I could sell my motorsport Elise then this would be remaining in my garage for many years to come.

The car is now on auction on Ebay, £10,000 starting price so get your bids in if you want to own this rare car.

I will reiterate the following points.

22 Essex Esprits produced.

Believed only 12 remain worldwide with 5 or 6 in the UK.

The first two off the production line were initially painted in the Essex colours and were supplied to the production of the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only". The more astute of you will notice that the Bond film Esprits were painted white and bronze, however, whether they were painted white, bronze, dayglo yellow, tartan or sky blue frigging pink does not alter the fact that they were Essex production models, this is well documented.

My car is limited edition 007, and has the 007 stickers on the side, if you cannot see a connection with James Bond 007 then I feel very sorry for you, I am sure your mummy still has to tie your shoelaces.

Rant over.

On Ebay for final time before entering COYS auction in London on 7 December when the reserve will be considerably higher.

£12,000 starting price and no reserve, prices can only increase i the future with only 5 examples in the UK and 12 worldwide, could be many years before you see another for sale, no more dreamers please, you know who you are!!!!

Too bad I happened upon this ad about a year too late :(

I am looking for an Essex also - I am in Australia, but able to consider cars which are currently abroad. I suspect this thread has long been quiet, so I will not check back here regularly. If you have any information which may assist what could be a long search, please email me at [email protected]

Many thanks, Paul

I met the guy who bought this car, it's actually on it's way to Australia right now! Lovely chap, he's lived in the UK for a while and is heading home with some brilliant sounding machinery. Don't be surprised if it surfaces down under sometime soon, it's currently in a container on a ship headed for Melbourne.
