WANTED Esprit V8

Recommended Posts

42 year old surgeon looking for an Esprit V8. MUST HAVE things are - a full service history with the following things checked or done: re-cored radiator, cylinder linings, no gearbox issues, garaged, driven in dry, preferrably mileage <35,000miles, A/C working, no intermittent electrical faults and owner must have way of preventing a flat battery if car is not driven for 2 weeks.

DESIRABLE - the higher wing (not the S4S/ Sport 300 wing), federal centre exit exhaust, round tail lights. Colour is irrelevant if car is mechanically sound. I will consider any V8 with or without all these features.

If its any use Stratton collected mine today to sell. Maybe give them a bell.

It has all you ask and more apart from the Novas alloys. C service just done. 20k miles

if you want a complete run down let me know or look in my garage section.

Needs must but I was pretty upset to see it driven into the transporter.

:(

I may be selling mine and ticks most of those boxes. It has 36K and FLSH. It's booked into PNM this weekend to have engine removed to have manifold studs redone, cambelt change and turbo oil and water pipes changed, along with a service. It's also having the air con O rings replaced. It should be back in about 2-3 weeks.

However I would be looking at offers over £30K.

Some of the items/ work done over last 10 years of ownership of my V8 GT finished in titanium (a shade lighter than the picture above:

OZ Novas with matching Dunlop SP9000 tyres in excellent condition

Hi Spec Monster 6 front brake kit with 323mm drilled discs and alloy bells

321mm drilled disc and alloy bell rear kit

Rear round light conversion

Centre exit genuine Lotus exhaust with 200 cell sports cats

2002 front spoiler

Hi level rear spoiler

Clear front and side indicators

S300 carbon fibre centre and front console

Forge alloy turbo actuators

Forge twin dump valves

K&N filters

radiator upgrade to triple core by PNM

engine rebuilt by Lotus at 21K at cost of £10.5K including new block and liners etc.

clutch replaced by PNM

LH fuel tank replaced PNM

garaged and battery always put on trickle charger (I must add that battery hasn't been changed during ownership so could probably do with changing but that's up to new owner)

No known gearbox or engine issues

No known electrical faults

 

Selling due to lack of use (only did 100 miles in the last year)

 

 

Regards,

 

 

 

David

How about 21,000 miles, alloy tanks, straight pipes, never driven in wet, new tyres...

 

Mine's still rockin' the original '96 engine it was born with though :D

 

Edit: significant other part owner will lynch me if I attempt to sell.

Having seen David's Esprit I can honestly say it is without doubt one of the nicest I have ever seen, my favourite colour too. If I had over  £ 30k to spend I would snap it up !
