Up for Auction is a Beautiful 19. 00 Original Mile  Giugiaro Esprit S2 in rare Silver Diamond

- One of 553 1978 S2 Esprits Produced

- 2 Owner car . Spending its early life in Seattle. then Moving to Vancouver Island for the remainder.

- Enthusiast owned. regular maintenance including recent timing belt.

- Original Marcasite interior and deep pile rugs

- Original Speedline Alloys with no Curb rash

-  Dellorto twin carbs

- beautiful clean untouched underbelly

- One respray in its original color in the late 80's

- Full manuals included

This S2 runs. drives and handles incredibly. No starting. or overheating issues.  Goes through the gears nicely. Tracks and brakes straight. Handles like. well . a Lotus.

Interior shows very well. little to no wear on the carpets. the Marcasite is a bit dry due to age but still shows well.   Gauges . power windows. lights are all fully operational. The original Windshield is crystal clear with no cracks or pitting.

As mentioned the car had one respray in the late 1980's. It still shows excellent as the pictures and video shows. A couple of small door edge chips and a handful of small rock chips. There is no accident history on this car and obviously its been stored indoors its whole life.

When it comes to Early Esprits this car is somewhat of an Anomaly. It is an unrestored . low mile . well serviced turn key car. Ultra low mile unserviced cars are not always a good thing.

Happy to answer any questions. sincere bidders only please
