Where's the limit? I mean, considering what even 5 year old Porsches are going for (values on the up, god help me...) and what the air cooled cars are fetching now, I guess we can just keep sitting on our cars for another few years before cashing in. The only question is whether the Esprit will even out with the other exotics, or whether it will consistently be outpaced. I'd love to be able to sell the V8 for a Testarossa or XJ220 someday, hopefully soon before the state bans cars and internal combustion engines... 

Edit: ok the XJ220 isn't gonna happen. But a beater Testarossa I can run into the ground would be nice.

Are they really going to sell at those prices?!?! If so then I had better wrap mine up in cotton wool and put it in a container...

Firstly we are aghast when Esprit prices get left behind as classic car prices rocket but then, when they catch up, we're aghast at the prices being asked...

Why, yes, exactly!  :P

It's a well known fact that black esprit a all ways fetch the most money.  

Jokes aside this is thereabouts for the uk market for a very good low mileage g car. One with sub 5k came available a couple of weeks ago at 50k sterling and went with in a few days.
