Esprit Picture & Video Thread


Recommended Posts

Photo,  just now -  Another MOT (+10 years no advisories) and another run over to N Yorks.   HC was high and CO low, so I'd clearly turned the mixture down a little too much - but still within limits.   A/C continues to work perfectly  (anyone still think an Esprit wont benefit from A/C this summer?)   Unfortunately there is a noticeable increase in NVH from the Alunox system, I have largely reduced this by swapping back to a mild steel silencer mount and adding a 'damper' (bracket) between the turbo & cam towers.   I guess it wont be helped as this is an all  'polybush'  car.  However the confidence that gives on high speed bends is worth it.

NB Front bonnet is not clipped down on photo - it doesn't stick up!

So after pestering my dad for a year to find  pictures or videos of his Esprit he owned many years ago ,

And today he finally climbed into the attic and found them, 😀
