The ad says it is both THE James Bond car and "

the same as the 007 car". Which is it?

Hopo,

I believe it was fitted with a wet sump engine by Lotus as I believe several were when there were warranty issues with the dry sumps.

"Commemorative Black Lotus Nose Badge"

I wonder if Joe public will ever start to understand the black badge myth? Hell maybe I should just go with it maybe invent something to go with my "special" black and gold Lozenge badge??

There seem to be many threads on this car now, maybe we can merge them all? The car was for sale in Perth in around 2007, me being in Melbourne it was too far away to look at. Then the current owner (who shipped it across from Perth) showed me the car 2 years ago when he was tentatively looking to sell. He still wanted a lot of money for it at that stage. I had a drive of it, nice guy who definitely got into the the whole Bond aspect of the car and was happy to chat.

The car I believe won its class at Targa Tasmania at some stage in the 2000s too.

Brian - I'd lay off it for a while you're already looking a bit wired

I'm new to esprit ownership so still learning. I saw this advert and first though wouldn't it be in a museum.... Then saw several pictures doing quarter mile runs and thought...... This guy really can't have much experience creating a desire when selling some thing? I'd get those photos off and get more of it gleaming to try to fetch a price tag at half of that !!

I agree the quarter mile pictures should not be there, also the other photos are period shots when it had a red interior. Some current nice pictures would help this a lot.

Still £75,000 - a bridge too far methinks!

fully agree.... £20,000 - £25,000 maybe...
