Sold my Esprit S4s last week (still on my drive). I've bought a Lotus Esprit V8 GT twin turbo. It's a V reg in titatium with only 27K on the clock. It's had over 10K of engine rebuild which was an issue with the V8 including a new block and crank. This was done at 21K.
The colour isn't as bright as the last two cars I've had. A bit more stubtle.
The last car was a 2.2 single turbo. This one's a 3.5 V8 twin turbo. Power was restricted to 350BHP due to the Renault gearbox it uses.
I have plenty of mods to do on this car. I'll take my time as I have to keep this car for a few years. Last night I fitted clear side and front indicators, programmable wiper relay, relay to light up all 4 headlights on main beam and brighter bulbs.
I've only got one picture at the mo


It's got a different interior to the last car. It's also got a higher rear spoiler which has a built in stop light.
V8's also have twin exhausts. I will be taking the back box off and replacing with straight through pipes though not 100% sure yet. I've found a receipt with the car for over 500 for a sports exhaust so may keep it on.

Just bought these off Ebay last week. They are alloy button covers.
I think the buttons are Peugeot ones though not sure.
Only cost me 21 for 7 button covers in satin finish

Stuy,

It sound nice at the mo. I'll have to do a before and after sound off. It now sounds like the car should have done. My last one always sounded a bit tinny!

the're only small T25 turbos so not that greedy!
Will plan to put bigger ones on but this car doesn't have an intercooler or chargecooler like my last one. This will lose boot space.

Iam looking at lighting up the engine bay through the oval vents. Got a tip off from a frien that you can buy Cathodes instead of neons for 5 for a pair on Ebay. Ebay Link


Problem is I need red, so I'll have a look and wait until they pop up. Only down side is that they aren't water resistance. Good side is that they drawn very little current.
