Lotus Esprit GT3
|Private or Trade||Private seller|
Esprit GT3, 1998 revised dashboard model. Current owner last 16 years. 52000 miles, black leather comfort seats, fully functional air conditioning. Rare model, only 198 made worldwide, ultra rare Chrome Orange, believed less than a dozen remaining in this colour. Always maintained with the intention to keep forever; just had £5000 major service less than 1000 miles ago with many new parts including all belts, fluids, stainless steel petrol tanks (£1000) and stainless exhaust manifold (£1200). Stainless fixings used whenever possible. This has been the most reliable car I have ever owned, ignore the rubbish you read from people who have never owned a late model Lotus. Not many GT3s left in this condition, I scoured the country twice over to find it myself. Signed underbonnet by Hazel Chapman and Clive Chapman, Colin Chapman’s wife and son, for added collectability. I advertised this last year but withdrew the sale because I loved it too much. However a bereavement forces re-assesment of priorities.
