It's the first time its very seen this car, it's very batmobile / fast a furious, not something I thought anyone would do to an esprit? It's a head turner but can't think what buyer it would attract, and esprit lover will want a more standard one, a boy racer wouldn't want the up keep of a fragile esprit, and a poser would by a porsche????

I can't be 100% sure but I think this was the car prior to being abused. Truly was a credit to the owner, back then:

Only long term members will probably remember, but I don't think Karl telling everyone he spent £50 a year on servicing helped sell it.

WOW this is an old topic, not been on here in a long long time

well i didn't think it would sell eithier BUT it did sell in under 2 weeks when i advertised it (i did sell cheap though, quick sale :cry:).

the guy that bought it spent alot on doing thing that EVEN I wouldn't do to it, he then decided after about 2 months to swop it for a hot rod.

the last time i saw it on the net i wasn't happy tbh, it was at an auction and it was sold for alot more than i sold it for and it was battered, front splitter smashed in and a total mess. 

it wasnt to everyones taste (and no ones taste on here) but it stood out and got me in magazines/TV/meets/Shows etc etc, so it did its job.

yes it did only cost me £50 a year to service, GT3's are amazing cars, they never go wrong (Remember my friend owns a garage ha ha). If anyone owns a GT3 and spends a fortune on maintenance your unlucky, i owned it 10 years and i NEVER had a major issue. cant even think of anything that cost over £150 to fix.
