How many Sport 350s ?

Recommended Posts

As a recent new owner to a sport 350 (no.16) I thought i had done enough reasearch to answer most questions but was stumped last night by a fellow Esprit enthusiast who asked how many 350s are left in this country (GB)

I know a few have recently broken for spares,some exported etc, sorry if this is already covered in another thread but could not find the answer tonight.

Accurate nos. or a near guess ???

Impossible to say but 30ish would be my guess.

Thanx. Bibs.

Lets see how many cars are known by forum users out of interest.

Please post up here any known Sport 350 Esprit.

that might give us a better picture. or if anyone knows of "dead" cars that may help

Those figures are inaccurate, some 350's will be listed as just 'Esprit'. I know for a fact that there are more than 4 300's too!

I actually ran the sport 350 register for some 8 years.. time runs by us all and things change.

A couple of year ago there was just 16 left in the UK.

I would say from my own experience of owning my own No26 car since mid 2001 when the engine was not even fully run in. My car sat in the showroom as I haggled over the price for some 2-3 months, I actually paid £50k for it. Today having been very active about the model as it stands. slightly stiffer a little louder, less sound proofing lighter bottom half of the body etc account for this, but overaul a nice step forward in many ways over any other V8 Version. Yes the Sport 300 may have better overaul balance but that car had a huge amount of money spent to create the race car it came from.  You either love the Sport 350 or you may well prefer one with out the wing etc and leather, depends on your cup of Tea. After some 12 years, even this morning going into my garage to get some thing, I'm hit once again by the car I Love. beauty is the beast.. 6 gears about 500bhp, a 50mm gear shift, with the clutch or Not. FUN Yup. I should post what my eyes saw this morning, half draped in it's working cover, as I attempt to Improve the Radius Arm Mountings which the poly ones are Naf
