Porsche G50 in Esprit V8- Photos


Recommended Posts

I sold my modded Esprit V8. It is headed back to the UK. I never got around to installing the G50 conversion that I bought from Mike Seekinger out of John (Jack?) Hazzard's Esprit V8 race car.

These transmissions (G50/52) seem to fetch a fair amount of money from the mid engine kit car guys due to the fact that they can be made to handle 800+ hp.  I have the trans listed on eBay.

I did want to post some pics of the conversion kits for the Lotus community in case anyone is curious to see how this could be done.

The parts were rather crudely executed so I planned to use them as templates for my install.  The axles and flywheel were nice, so I suppose the rest is cosmetic.

I never personally ran this setup, or saw it in a car.  But I do know that it worked.

Anyway, a bunch of photos are included below.  Hope you find them interesting:

Many thanks.  Was hard to let go of.  I am certain I will regret it, but it was time to move on.  

It is headed to Lancashire.  Maybe you will cross paths with it at an event someday.

Regards,

Rod

Wow!  What a beautiful car.   Fantastic look and I'm sure it is great to drive with the mods.    I love the interior as well and the aftermarket wheel (beats the US GM wheel by a mile).     Does anyone know where I can get these exact floor mats??    Cheers!
