Appears to have been well looked after, plus he's got some manuals as well.

Might well be a good buy.

Gday crew,

Yes that is the one.

The owner personally imported it, has had panel and paint, some small maintanence items carried out. There is a oil leak left side, just inboard from fuel tank ( owners description), Cam towers? It is his regular drive car and its been garaged by both owners. Has doco's and seems nice and tidy, the true test is to view it, I have got the checklist provded by Lotus Esprit World. I will converse with the owner over the phone and email in the hope of answering most questions. I will probably fly over and have a look. Not sure about the price? I have looked at a few over the past 6 months and I have been left with mixed feelings. Can anyone shed some light on the short comings and hidden issues with the turbo S3?

Cheers, Mark

Gday Crew,

Does anyone know anything about this particular S3 HC Turbo, Rego-XZC 958, advertised on carsales.com.au

Why would a S3 need a new chassis? Accident?

Cheers Mark.

There has been a lot of talk about this particular car on the Aussie Exotics forum. Looks like a great find. The owner has put up a lot of the rebuild pics - and this was a total rebuild.

Have a read of

S3

Maybe I’m a bit late on this but if it is a HC car then it not Australian delivered (most likely UK and the salt on the road would have kill the chassis). If it was Australia it would be HCI (with K-jetonic fuel injection). If you decode the VIN number you will know. http://www.espritfactfile.com/VINDecode.html
