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

I've always fancied a green car, so when the Evora was announced I had a word with my local dealer ( then Frosts in Brighton ),  who told me if  I ordered a car in BRG they'd want double the deposit ie 20% on the basis that 'if you chance your mind I'll be stuck with it!'. That stuck with me and when I specced my next car and I took a swerve on a deep green, again resale was  a concern...  next time around I won't be so concerned, still my all time favourite colour for the right car. 




Currently having an illicit affair with another marque, be back in the fold one day... B-)

I have two green classic sportcoupé 's. Somehow , I just like green on a sportscar.

First is the esprit S2.2 in the carlton's very dark empire green. I bought it this way....and kinda like it a lot.


The other one is my 1970 Opel GT in some nice VW corrado pearl green with BMW white stripes. This one I did spray in a self made paintboot in my garage. People thought I was nuts, but in the end it became beautiful. I did however use professional PPG automotive paints and with a lot of elbow grease, it was coloursanded and with a rotary polished in multiple stages to highgloss. Look also at the "OPEL GT" logo, airbrushed in the bottom of the doors and I let it sink deep in the green colour, by spraying a last thin coat of green over it, before finishing the doorpanels with 3 layers of clearcoat. No wrapping or stickers on this one. All details are  painted36274627861_1121e9fd6e_b.jpg
