New Charo car on Copart

There is a 1986 Esprit listed on Copart right now that is another burn job.
The unusual thing about the car is that it no longer has the Lotus engine as it was converted to electric power at some point before it burnt.
I would have to say that this one looks too burnt for even Charo Bill to restore.

I wonder what the white sticker on the bonnet says? "CAUTION - Hot Surfaces"?

Would of liked to have seen this before the fire, that's a lot of LiPo cells up in smoke. Dibs on the radiator under tray!

Always protect your wiring with a fuse or circuit breaker!

The listing shows that it sold so some of (the few) parts that are salvageable might start showing up somewhere.
