No engine. no transaxle. Tragically they were lost when pulled for a rebuild by a previous owner.
This car has had a color change performed. Originally it was a "Roman bronze" car. Current Ferrari red paint has a few chips put presents well and looks great over two-tone tan interior.
The original interior is one of the nicest I've seen. Most interiors I've seen have aged terribly and been redone. The car is missing the windshield trim and the vinyl dash has peeled back from the windscreen slightly. It is also missing the shock/dampers for the rear hatch as well as the rear valance and shift knob. It is otherwise complete.
I have the ignition key.
The chassis is in great condition. The vinyl wrapped federal bumpers are very nice but the euro spec bumpers are practically a mandatory upgrade and readily available.
The fuel tanks are in good condition.
I wonder about the congressional tag since this was an Oregon car but I found it in the car and thought it was interesting so it will be included.
Buyer must arrange for shipping.
There were very few guigiaro esprits produced718 s11060 s2
The s2 in my opinion is the most desirable due to its featuring numerous improvements in build quality and usability yet being without the body kit that would later compromise the guigiaro esprit's original body lines.
There you have it. a good condition ultra low production hand built exotic sport car that will continue to appreciate in value.
This body design. being arguably the most iconic put forward by the man voted car designer of the century. is one of the few remaining quintessential super cars to remain even arguably affordable.
Engine/transaxle available from several UK vendors for approximately 2500 GPB ($3600 USD) plus shipping. While this car is obviously an ideal candidate for non-stock build (Buick 215/rover v8. ford 302 etc) I would urge potential buyers to keep this car original. as values continue to rise you will be glad that you did.
This was my dream car and if I had the space I would happily keep it forever. It is a truly gorgeous automobile design.
