Senna Themed Esprit V8 (the old one.....)

Very cool, looks to be based on a 96 V8 judging by the S300 rear spoiler and large instrument binacle

You think that's cool? A Belgian Senna fan once held an exhibition, an Italian guy came by, he had a Senna liveried truck... Believe me that was cool.

I must search, to see if I have some pictures.

Found already a link on the web: http://raceminiatuur...enna-truck.html

Err

Like to know the engine mods - they claim they have raised the bhp from 354 to 492 and can still only achieve 0-62 in 4.3 and on to 175mph.

Top speed for a standard V8 was listed as 175 and the 0-60 time isn't that far off standard.

No need to apologise Cliff - my cool comment related to the engine and gearbox mods only! But as mentioned the quoted performance figures are pretty close to stock.

My mates teenage son thinks its absolutely fantastic. Exactly.....

Having "done" a JPS car, I think it could have been more considered graphically, and also with regards to it's choice of interior trim and wheel finish. I suppose the aesthetics took a second place to the engineering; surprised it's not faster though.

Glad to see the old girl in the "spotlight" - still a fabulous car, and a nice idea too.

Can't spot the interior but could be more subtle and gold wheels...

Scott is the Jedi master of special editions!

You can see the old-style dash pod through the windscreen but that's about it.

A bit over the top, but good publicity for Lotus
