It’s hi-time we had the one and only ‘hi-wing’ Esprit Turbo SE for your desktop and mobile. While always polarising from day one, the hi-wing Esprit is looking pretty darn cool in 2017. This one was caught in the wild in Hong Kong by photographer and Lotus owner Ben Molloy. Ben’s Elise S1 has seen more of the world than most. When he moved from the UK to Hong Kong he took the Elise with him and did the same thing again when he moved to Australia!
“This particular Esprit Turbo – along with several others – was a regular participant at events organised by the Classic Car Club of Hong Kong. I used to enjoy arriving a little earlier than the other members so I could take photos of the diverse and interesting range of cars arriving. I like photographing cars in motion – it requires more technique, patience (and sometimes luck), but is all the more satisfying when you get a focused, panning shot.”
Many thanks to Ben for his kind permission to share this shot. To download it for your desktop, smartphone or tablet – simply click the thumbnail below, then, once opened, right click and ‘save as’.
Smartphone wallpapers just don’t get a lot better than that!
After a 1000 mile tour of Tasmania there are a good number of PoTM worthy shots of the Elise Down Under that you can check out at Ben’s social media pages:
