Holy cow, that electrical thing under the bonnet looks something that resembles the gubbins of an Enigma machine :P  So hope that  the suspension system on this car is sorted out and made to function again :)

Says it needs recommissioning so perhaps not?! Someone called Andrew selling unless its a dealer?

I wish the seller well but at that money I would expect the work to have been done - even with the cars history.

Hi Guys, 

Didn’t even try. Got a email from Brian Angus sayin he just changed the fuel, fuel lines and battery and fired straight up before the factory out it on display. I wanted to get the belt done and then do it. 

With two young children and a business everything is just being wasted on me I’m affraid. My Elise was used once last year , Europa three times and the other not at all.   So it was time for the active and the electric Evora to go.

I really hope they sell and go to a good home.  Would be great to see the active car running again.   Just fabulous history.

I would have thought that Gaydon is probably the best and only place for this.   A bit of history but of limited appeal to most I would  have thought.

(thanks to the moderator who did the merge and sorry I missed the topic in the first place, actually I was almost sure I had seen a reference about this active suspension Esprit in the signature of someone here!)

@phil flash > this thread might be of some interest to you ;)
