Hi Jeroen, have you tried @johnpwalsh of lotus rescue, I know he knows of a couple of LHD S1's. He is currently working away so i am not sure what his internet access is like. Might be worth sending him a PM

@Bibs - I'm going to take this off Dan. You going to Duxford? I'll give you the cash there if you are.

There's a red (originally white) S1 on Gumtree UK. Just search 'James Bond' (seriously). On at £15k though.


Not worth starting anything now...🍺

Import one from the US. the steering wheel will be on the correct side for you and it will be cheaper than finding one in the UK. Win win!

Oh yes I'm trying hard to find one!

But it's difficult to find one for realistic fair prices.

Are you a member of the Yahoo S1S2S3Owners group? The US cars tend to come up on there quite often as it's mainly an American biased group. Somebody finds one on Bring A Trailer and then posts the link there. I think you're a few years too late to pick one up for next to nothing now though. I paid £2,000 for my white\tartan S1 but those days are long gone.

As an example this came up on the Yahoo group and although not 100% stock it wasn't a bad car for under $10k... http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1978-lotus-esprit-4/

Now on its way to Belgium.

The first one we picked up in the States in January this year cost 23K and needed a lot of work. The second one as just over 30K. To find one anything worth buying is going to well over 10K now.

I would say the $10k one would be worth it so think there will be a couple of cheap cars still in the states
