thanks guys so nice to be able to enjoy her! Funny having had the car for a month and not really having driven her, I know that is a tiny amount of time in comparison to some but still was itching to let her loose! Car drives so nice it is like she has just left the factory!! The only thing I'm missing from my old esprit is the sports exhaust as the car is stock as a rock as she should be but I'm kind of thinking I could possibly maybe potentially modify the exhaust??

Be interested to see how yours sounds when she's ready Barry but will be more than likely doing something to enhance the sound on mine. Byproduct of the quieter exhaust is I get to hear the turbos better but do prefer the slightly more yobbo noise of my last esprit ??

That's interesting as it was for sale in Scotland, near Edinburgh if I remember correctly and I don't think it was a Lotus main dealer. This was about 4-5 years ago now and they were asking £27,000 at the time and I think it had a little over 30000 miles on it. I am sure it was the same car as I recognised the number plate and I am sure I was told it came from a collection of black cars from a Lotus fanatic. If the sale actually did fall through I am so disappointed the dealer did not ring me back as I specifically asked them to.

Hi Marc, saw this one come up for sale recently and thought it might have been this car, also starlight black was quite a popular colour on the last editions 5 out of 15 I think.

Hi Guys,

Not been on here much but I am thinking I might have to sell the esprit, I am due to be moving and the mrs is giving me grief about the size of the garage and the bills we have coming.   Anyway I wanted to tell everyone before I start getting pms telling me how stupid I am (I know this already) if they see it advertised in the future.  Also in the unlikely event anyone wants it please pm car is now sitting on around 8k miles with full Lotus history last couple of years carried out at Bell and Colvile.

Cheers

Brooke

I would definitely have to prostitute myself to pay for the divorce, Ian...

I LOVE THAT CAR

But no...mine is a better colour anyway. And sounds so much nicer.

My choice of a black Esprit would be a Turbo Esprit with gold wheels, like Purso's old one/Dan E's.

sounds interesting but not really in the market for one of those :) plus the current model starts playing up when these scenarios crop up!

Lovely looking car with a very low mileage. Is this one of the lowest mileage Esprit going around.

What you really need is a proper 4 cylinder Lotus. All the best classics are ?

I've got double that in just the one car. It takes you two Esprits to get the eight cylinders...  X 

That’s not a problem for Barry, he usually has more than one kicking around.

To be fair - I reckon it’s best to have two - gives you a far better chance of having one you can use while the others broken
