resurection of my beloved GT3


Recommended Posts

As some of you may know, along with Nigeniga in his Europa S,  I was involved in a crash on the M20 back in May.  Niges Europa S was sadly destroyed, and my Esprit was damaged.  Although the damage did not seem that bad and was virtually all cosmetic, the car was writtten off.  Devastated I thought long and hard about what to do, but the car simply means too much so I decided to buy the car back and get it repaired.  The initial assessement was done by Beaconsfield Workshop, who are Lotus approved and also a Rolls Royce & Bentley approved bodyshop so its in good hands, I have seen their workmanship and it's excellent. 

So to kick things off below are some pictures of the damage after the crash.

Hope you can get it all sorted out again.

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

I thought that the GT3 was wingless?

That GT3 is a lovely looking car Adrian and I really look forward to seeing it restored back to its former glory. Good luck with the restoration.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Very impressed with the quality of the fibreglass repair by the chaps at Beaconsfield, it's genuinely invisible and the paintwork is stunning. Lovely guys too, I can see why you're happy Ade. Looking forward to seeing it all back together again :)

It's going to look absolutely brilliant in the sun as well as in the shade ;)  !!! Even if you cover it in one of Bibs covers (which are brilliant in themselves), it's still going to look absolutely in flying colours.

Kind regards,

Jacques

Nobody does it better - than Lotus ;)
