i think the 5th gear programme wont actually show much as i had to do a demo run for them so they got it on camera. i would think there should be alot more on the channel 5 one off special programme

once again proven to be exactly true : the Esprit still is, after that many years, (quote Jeremy Clarkson) an extremely fast car (unquote)

Been on a trip this weekend to Luxembourg, made a guy in a BMW 750i completely look like a fool, LMAO :)

He thought he was fast B)

still on the Esprit forum though, lol

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

what do they do 0-60 in again, something like 3.5 secs? (Noble)

but then they weigh about 400kgs less than an Esprit....about 950kg if memory serves.

If I could knock off that amount of weight my car would probably be that quick too.

Have you sold the S350 then?

I pop my head in once in a while. There are only 2 Noble forums, one's mainly US based and the other is on PH and there are not that many posts, well, not compared to here. I have to do something instead of working !!

Right then, said Fred.
