I'd assume since the guy made a worldwide cock of himself, he removed it.

Slightly odd that it's got 2 aerials. The roof mounted one might be for a CB radio so possibly being used as a US test mule? Also seems to have a black windscreen surround

LHD with what appears to be British plates.  Going by the cars in the back ground I would suggest Europe rather than USA that I initially assumed due to the Dodge truck.

Do those rear tyres look a bit 'skinny' like they are Goodyear 235 60 ZR 15?

 

The really good thing about this thread is that every time I open it I get to look at Danny's fab black dry sump before I scroll down! :)

Is it in Scandinavia for cold weather testing?

Yes, I think so.  A Federal spec UK registered car (federal side repeaters too).  It's Y reg so my guess is the photo was taken in 1982 during testing in preparation for the 1983 release of the Turbo Esprit Investors Special to the US market.

Anyone know what's special about this Esprit it, and where it is?

Typical German Autobahn petrol Station in these days, snow sticks in black/orange/black are German design, plates of the car behind says "KN", abbreviation stands for Konstanz, close to Lake Bodensee.

Esprit is Federal spec as mentioned before, not seen until yet: The door side mirror was moved rearwards for the US cars.
