Anyone Interested In This Esprit


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Chaps, 

anyone interested in this car, it’s is from a clients chum. Now I haven’t seen it but apparently from a large collection currently located in France. The car will be back in the country next week and will be avaliable for viewing in Henley. I have been asked to get some offers before it goes to market. I have said, if I am to commit anyone to this it will only be done subject to inspection. 

Please PM me if interested, I can also get it inspected at cost (if required) 

Below is the email from my client ( both I nor he are car dealers) and the pictures

Engines in though mate so that’s you out 👍

Probably worth about £22 - 25k.  Should be worth more but Steven's cars are still valued lower compared to other models. Should be worth more as it's the original, elegant and uncluttered design

Should be worth more as it's the original, elegant and uncluttered design just how Peter Stevens intended.

Looks great and perhaps a perfect match for James 'Jimbo72' who posted an article on Chat very recently looking to buy?

Minimum £20k for private sale as there is nothing that requires contingency for repairs/upgrades by the new owner - I would suggest retail from specialist would be £25k.

Have to agree. That car looks to be in unbelievable condition. How often has it been used though?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Sparingly I would say but serviced every year. It is coming over next week now from France I honestly thought I had heard the last of it. 

I will once again try to get a guide on price

Looks lovely. I'd prefer it without the SE wing though. Nothing against the wing, dearly love the SE, I just prefer to see the Turbo being proud to be what it is.

Is that a scuff on the nearside corner off the bumper?

Jonny I don’t think so as I have the high res pics looks like a reflection to me.

i haven’t seen it so could be. Agreed on the wing easy fix though
