Lotus Esprit S1 - my first Lotus


Brainy

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have just picked up my first Lotus and I can't quite believe it but I managed to get a S1! It has no history other than Scott Walker rescued it from the back of the Lotus Factory where it had sat for 4 years after being bought for the CEO they then sacked. I got Morland Jones to re commission it and now I am out enjoying it as much as I can!

I am going to run it for a year and then I think I want to return it to its orignal Bronze colour with brown interior - I know everyone likes white but after 18 owners and no history it would be nice to start again with originality!

Any advice, or history of the car would be gratefully received and if anyone has a Roman Bronze car I would love to see it some time!

Matthew

Welcome to the forums.

 

There is a picture of that car which appeared on another thread very recently, but I'm sorry I can't find it.

 

Good luck with your restoration works.

:)

It's getting there......

Welcome to TLF Matthew. :welcome:

 

Nice car. Hope whichever way you decide to go works out really well. I think it would look awesome in Roman Bronze personally.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Thank you guys.  I am am member of a few forums and this is the best welcome I have had - really encouraging. I was chased down on SW London on Friday by a guy in a F40 who wanted to talk about the Lotus - so I know what you mean about attention! I don't think there is a Bronze one in the UK I think it would be the right thing to do!
