Grown tired of that everlasting wait for the new Esprit to start rolling off the line at Hethel? Well, you can remind yourself of just what a long and illustrious history the previous model had in all its various incarnations at the Lotus Festival. Thelotusforums.com is planning a time-line with an example of each of the variants produced from 1976-2004, and with the cars pledged so far they are almost there! Just three versions are proving elusive, so if you are the proud owner of a JPS, Esprit S, or an S4S and would like to be part of the fabulous Festival, then Bibs at thelotusforums.com is waiting to hear from you.
News that the James Bond submersible Esprit from the film ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ is coming up for auction has naturally caused a lot of excitement but with the auction not taking place until two weeks after the Lotus Festival it will be just too late for the new owner to bring the unique Esprit along…
You can find the thread here or contact Bibs by email for more information.
