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 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.

New car Alan, thought I'd build a Copper Fire version, it was red originally but the interior colour suited the colour change perfectly.

Great result @Final Edition

I'd agree with @Bibs the light makes it. Photography is ALL about the light. Sets off the colour really well IMO.

The car has turned out great.

Stunning!
