Actually a body and chassis and a bit more. The body was originally silver according to Richard. Anyway I’ll do a full full write up in due course. The car was acquired almost 5 years ago believe it o

Testing this week - will keep you updated on how it runs. And promise to do a full report on the process

Let’s just say it didn’t leave Hethel as a production car. Not S2

The first 3 Esprits were made at Ketteringham Hall weren't they?

It is an Esprit isn't it?

Definitely not a St. Tropez, but is it a targa top, or was the body shell manufactured differently?
