Stunning looking car but certainly no better than yours or Fabians Paul, you should add an extra £5k for yours being an original White/Tartan car. Then factor in the centre ash tray.......££££££??

I think it is time to just except fully restored S1's are now goldust. ?

Worth watching to see how quick this one sells and start stock piling early Turbos in your lock ups!

I am pretty sure I spoke to this guy about 2 years ago and from memory his name is Peter Wiltshire. It was half way through then he said he had an offer from Canada at 200k USD so I bailed out. I will have a check through my emails but I am fairly sure this is that car

Only the nosebadge lets it down.  Considering the level of attention to detail, thats surprising.  Bloody lovely otherwise though.

The decal looks slightly wrong to me, but I can't find one in focus from back in the day to compare it with to check. I'm probably basing this thought on a later decal.

Where have all the stickers in the front luggage compartment gone?

For that kind of money I'd want it perfect, and it should also come complete with a Bond girl of my choosing.

And which one would you choose? I'd go for Jane Seymour (or should I say Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg) :)

It does look really nice.  Is there a different air vent on the dash, passenger side?

 

No it's a later car with different vent arrangement. It was originally yellow apparently and I wonder if it left the factory with a tartan interior?

Very nice example and very nice trim. Not an accurate Bond car, though I like the number plate. Here's why,

front badge and Esprit decal were just a Lotus decal

no centre ashtray

vents on binnacle and dash are incorrect

is there a clock? 

Barbara Bach is missing?

 

 A very nice Esprit that anyone would be proud to own! Cheap for 75k?????
