Can anyone shed some light on this Esprit?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

When I was studying mechanics at college, we had a number of cars we used to work on that were owned by the college for training purposes.

There was also an Esprit there sans engine and gearbox there that I was told Lotus developed the instrument pack on this particular car and then was donated to the college minus the mechanicals. It was then hung sideways on a wall in one of the classrooms where it has stayed ever since (20+ years)

The registration is C875 CCL. Just seeing if it rings a bell with anyone on here and if they have photos of the Esprit in testing? I managed to get a snap of it before I left.

Sorry, I've just come across this thread... Better late than never! I was one of the engineers at Lotus who worked on C875 CCL back in 1987. I designed a twin-display electronic dashboard system
