This is my third Esprit and if I sell it will probably be my last as my bad back makes it increasingly harder to get in out of these cars.  If you want a Bond style Esprit but don't want the hassle and unreliability of the stock engine/box then this car is for you. Insanely fast. 110bhp more than the Esprit Turbo. no unreliable gearbox. exhaust manifold. timing belts and turbo!!The car is not in showroom condition but is very presentable and with a few more man hours could be a real show winner. Private number plate included. The car is just sitting in the garage getting dusty (didn't use it last year at all). not desperate to sell (quite happy to have it sat in my garage) so please no silly offers - they will be ignored!Car will be mot'd if sold.
modifications include.
1981 S3 Lotus Esprit fitted with an Audi 4. 2L V8 engine and 6 speed manual box (aka the Hilly conversion!)Stainless steel twin exhaust system
Turbo body styling including skirts. turbo tail and louvre. Outbound breaks on rearBorbet A 17" Alloy wheels. 10" wheels on rear. 7. 5" on Front. Remote central lockingelectric window modificationelectronic speedoprogrammable ecuThatcham imoboliser fittedrecent leather full interior refit
There are some jobs to finish off (some of which I may get done!)o/s drivers capping rail trim needs fitting. small patch on rear quarter needs paint over (can be blown in without respraying whole quarter panel)no electric aerial (was going to fill the hole anyway as it has an active antenna fitted inside)engine bay needs tidying up with paint or carpet to make it look presentable.
