Prices Soaring

Recommended Posts

Despite price levels on Ferrari and some other nice cars having been lowered seriously much or not even sold with hefty discounts, I still think Lotus Esprits are the bees knees af an affordable supercar. They are cheap to buy (still) and "cheap'ish" to run.

On another note, personally, I think a car that is affordable to buy and run. and with no need to finance, therefore without dept, is all the more fun to drive ;)

Either way - Lotus Esprit is the bang for the buck and should stay that way - a Little bit secret. I see absolutely no need for all kinds of "investors" and "profitmaximisers" to come to the table. It's a drivers car ;)

btw: VERY nice S4s you have. Just keep it and enjoy. Can you tell me a similarely priced sportcar that drives better? Or a more expensive one?

And: what suspension do you have on that red S4s?

Cheers,

Jacques

My GT3 is now Staffordshire Mustard Yellow, which I reckon must add 20% to its value.  :D

Which is told to be strengthening the rear tubular engine/gearbox frame significantly. Less flex under high load mean that you can install a bit stiffer springs as well as a bit stiffer arb's.

I will be installing one from a Sport300 on my car, as soon as I have the missing parts, the small special designed cups that have to be welded on to the existing chassis frame. And when I have repaired the engine crane in the garage, which I will use to lift the complete body shell. I have collected some special cushioned super strong nylon oversized laces to attach through the body Shell. Oh well, in due time.

Kind regards,

Jacques

This has to be one of the crappiest Esprit ads I've ever seen. Very sloppy.

"STRIKING GREEN LEATHER" - In fact it's so striking we never posted photos of it. "WE ANTICIPATE THE VEHICLE BEING READY C AUGUST 2017" - So, it's all done, then?

theres a yellow S4 in this auction as well. But am I the only one whom thinks some of the classic prancing ponies are cheap?

I think the 308 GTS would be a steal if someone could bag it near lower estimate, the 208 a little high, and the rest about right. 

It's nice to see Coy's giving the S4 genuine Classic/Collector status at last.
