I do not know it personally, but it has been making the rounds on craigslist a few months back for a higher price (I believe 16K?). At 14.7K, it probably is reflecting a definitely soft Esprit market. Earlier craigslist ads mentioned the high cost of the HRE custom wheels and given it's a black car, the prospective buyer should inquire about the state of the AC system (in additional to the usual Lotus Esprit specific questions about Service C, timing belt, etc). The upgraded transmission description should also be asked about since it is a Citroen transmission-equipped car (does it have an upgraded circlip, etc.).
It's a pretty cool looking car with the black out treatment, although those bright wheels are an acquired taste.
