Charcoal Grey (I think), Rare Turbo Glass Back, Oldham

Recommended Posts

I have never seen an Esprit or for that matter any Lotus in Oldham since I started working there 4 months ago. Friday evening, in a taxi heading for the airport in the pouring rain, I am on the phone with Murray Motors in Edinburgh, arranging to pick up my Esprit tomorrow morning after its service/MOT, when this drove right in front of me and we followed it down the Oldham road towards Manchester, around 5.15pm.

 

I finished the call and managed to get a picture as we turned off Oldham Road onto the M60. Anyone here? Have to say it looked very tidy despite the gloom.

 

Coincidence? Fate? Serendipity? Its all a bit weird if you ask me. :huh:

As long as it's black rather than Charcoal Grey that is......

Thought it was black initially and said so to Craig on the phone. But we drew up alongside it just before I took the photo and it was definitely grey. Agree it does look menacing though. Hard to believe it is nearly 30 years old....

Hi, I grew up in chadderton near that junction and only ever seen a red v8, a yellow v8 on broadway in and a red n/a near Hollingworth lake. My red SE gets a run to the parents house on a sunny day, the sunny day becoming a rarer sight than the grey lotus ha ha.

I thought I saw a grey one for sale advertised in the salford area recently so it could be that one?

I've just looked at the photo for about the fourth time. Why do some people say that Esprits look dated? That looks brilliant, I reckon.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

That car does look good.

 

I ocassionally have my car up in the North West, pottering around east Manchester. Never see any Esprits round there, although i did catch a red final edition v8 on King st Manchester quite some time ago.
