Wanted S3 Turbo, blue, medium mileage and acceptable condition

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm looking to buy a Esprit S3 Turbo, either Giugiaro or Stevens, either metallic blue or ice blue. Maybe preferably Giugiaro, I'm more into the sharp lines.

I want to have it for very long time, so chassis, body and powertrain have to be in very good condition and medium mileage, preferably below 60k miles, but I could consider below 80k miles if it's worth

I don't mind if the paint or interior has some aging as long as the price reflects it.

To not make you waste your time, I could pay around £15k for one which needs either body spray or interior re-trim (but not both), £20k for one that either interior or paint has some aging but are good enough to keep running, or up to £30k if it's all in astonishing conditions

thabks!

Yes it was a nice car... he got some electric problems with the engine, though.

i think is definitely going to be a G Esprit, and Turbo. Unless someone tells me that there is more legroom in a Stevens version. I am quite tall and my legs are a bit on the edge for the G version, but I saw in a forum that there are some modifications that can be done to get a bit more legroom

How tall are you? I am 6 1" and I fit in mine fine. 

I'm 6.2. I do have more than enough headroom, the problem in the G car are the pedals. I have to put my legs in an awkward position to operate them nicely.

i found this page for possible modifications

another crazy idea would be to throw some big cash on some ultra thin racing buckets

To be fair the pedals are pretty close together and it is tight down there but I always drive in trainers and have no problem  

Is not about the pedals being too close to each other, it is much worse in a Pantera. It is about them being too close to the seat, and hitting the steering wheel with my knees when operating them
