Forget the Pork, that looks like one wonderful Esprit. Very nice.

Why does this always happen? Just arrived at Goodwood and no sooner got out the car and turned on the camera than some damn Porsche arrives to ruin the picture!

Your car is stunning Andy - but can't help thinking black door mirrors would look even better

Excellent pictures of a beautiful car. It almost looks like a toy car under that plane.

Like many of us, I imagine, I've been mesmerized by the Esprit since I was 11 years old and saw an S1 in 1976 at a show. Back then, it seemed truly otherworldly.

Others will disagree but I now think the V8 looks the best. That is awesome in black!

80s Turbo or last of the line V8??

Impossible to call. Would have to get both!

I'm always up for an argument. That 80s Turbo in white and red is without a doubt one of the most stunning production cars Lotus has ever produced. It's iconic. It's legendary. It's awesome. It's bloody fantastic. And it makes my heart skip a beat and yearn for it. 

The V8s are lovely too and driving would be totally awesome. A real brutish and visceral experience wrapped in a timeless shape.

Both awesome, but for me, the red and white 80s turbo wins, but, I would be chuffed to bits and very proud with either.

Your kind words are pretty much identical as spoken by a certain Mr MJ Kimberley when we were standing next to it at Brooklands :)

Interesting looking engine cover.

The sunroof makes the car look very light and airy inside.

Snap for the crook lock :)

The 'Lotus' was done by the previous owner. I kind of like it, it stops people saying 'nice Ferrari'....

Mark now wants a V8...

Hurry up, they're getting pricey :smoke:

I have had an SE and now a V8 both for years of ownership.  After driving and working on the the SE, the V8 is very nice.
