I am very conflicted about the sale but thank you for the kind words gents. The other word I have to say is about how Gerald put it together as Alan said it is so taught but also sitting stationary on the m40 in the heat after enjoying the car around Henley and Marlow the water temp Crept from 88-90 and sat there. tMy v8 fluctuates more than this car.  Testament to Gerald/gst!

Simply stunning!! :thumbsup:

Interesting to see that both the indicator and windscreen wiper stalks are upside down and therefore must have been reversed. Has the owner got frustrated with having the indicators on the right side of the wheel and thought of a crafty way round it? Interesting..........B-)

 

I decided to do exactly that to mine today. I had enough of accidentally wiping the windscreen, and then owing to the weird way the Lucas intermittent wipe works, never being able to turn it off again the first time.

Simple to turn the stalks over. The only other issue is the two roll pins which do the indicator cancelling have to be moved to the other side of the steering wheel boss. Easy enough to drill new holes, the boss is made of aluminium.

How nice is it to have a car that's a bit out of the ordinary, yet does not attract resentment from others?

Well put, Simon.:)

Beautiful car!

Too right Simon, Esprits do not attract resentment, only enthusiasm and interest. Unless they are red of course...

:sofa:

 I still absolutely adore this shot of yours, my definition of a British supercar:

This being due to the usual unwashed masses often confusing the car with that "other marque" from Maranello. Once educated, most are properly won over. B-)

Thanks Alan, yes I like that shot too. I don't see it anymore as I now have the Exige in that space. I've put the Esprit away for a while as I like to keep it clean!

It felt great to be in it again this weekend; both cars are real events and attract positive attention in equal measure.

Cheers Simon

Boys with toys: my SE next to my dad's '73 450SLC, returning from a local classic car run in the sun.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

One might almost say that the reasons for putting the car back on the road are manifoldly evident.:thumbup:
