Brilliant!

That is exactly what shows the genious lines and design of the Esprit! Compare that to this modern Eastern sportscar, and decide for yourself if the decades between them have done something positive for the sportscardesign. And then place a driver standing next to them and compare the height ;)

And then take a look at an early 1990'ies japanese sportscar.

And finally the italian ditto.

And then tell me, why I should buy japanese?

And I havent even spoken into weight, performance and driver experience...

Kind regards,

Jacques.

Those two last Photos are some of the best and most interesting Esprit Photos I've ever seen!

Five Racing Esprits next to each other. That's a sight to behold.

A few questions:

- How big and wide are Wheels and tires?

- Any chance of getting a similar rolld Cage these days?

- Who were the petrol and oil supporters for those 5 cars?

Kind regards,

Jacques.

I would think that Castrol sponsored the oil, judging from the pictures on these sites (also some more specs):

The other stickers might give you more clues!

 

I tempted fate...now my Esprit V8 IS in bits...(sob)

I popped over the Atlantic to LotusTalk to have a nose for any useful recent cross references and found that our dear friend @Jenna'sEspritTurbo has been hiding some pictures from us..! X180Rs anyone?

Stunning cars Alan and great the Esprit has racing heritage.  I have a signed pic of me and Doc Bundy at Goodwood too.

However, Lotus never galvanised the chassis's of the X180R so if you're in the market you need to look carefully.
