Smile V8 Esprit needed for film shoot in CT!

Hello all,
I am working on a small film project in southern Connecticut over the summer, and would like to find a V8 Esprit for a few shots. It will be a short sci-fi/fantasy trailer video.

Ideal would be a V8 (with newer dash) in grey, silver, or yellow.

Glad to compensate with gas/travel money, some high quality footage/photos of your car, some YouTube fame, and of course some Esprit camaraderie. It should be a lot of fun.

I had my own '99 Esprit V8 that I was hoping to use for projects like this, but alas it was not to be:

Glad to answer any questions. Thanks for any support!

Mine is an '03, but it is Nightfall Blue/Magnolia.
Providing there are no troubles going or coming home from Birmingham, it could be available should you decide Blue to be acceptable. I'm in the mid Hudson valley area.

Best of luck with your project!

Rick

Thanks, Rick and Big Bird! But unfortunately this particular project needs a light colored car.

If no one else goes for it maybe I can switch the whole video to Black & White so we can use your car.

.

I have a white 97 Esprit with magnolia interior in Florida and a trailer/truck capable of transporting it anywhere.....OK ok....not Hawaii or lower Slebovia.......

... We can start the conversation with this idea.........they've made officially one million Porsche 911s but only about 1000 Esprit V8s remain....so who cares about Porsche...........not one of them passed me and the Esprit at the April 2017 SCCA Driver's School at Daytona!!.....but who cares about Porsche in this conversation. Are you interested ?

Please do not ask about the car appearing anywhere that might be a conflict with the Pro Series which I drive in sponsored by Primus Racing which you can check by looking up Southern Continental Challenge Series. Dude!

Thanks eyerace, but we need the updated V8 interior, which I think is post 98-99. Unless you've updated yours?

a small project? a trailer? a few shots? ....and your video included a shot of the car's dash that lasted maybe a half of a second? ......and a 97 is somehow not what you're looking for...........ideally.

ideally.

really.

really?

My bad on the wording, but the interior is actually really important for the footage we need.

Hi David! Thanks for the offer, but I will have to do some testing to see if I can film a blue car and then change it's color well enough in post-production.

I'll give it a try and post the results.

I did some quick testing, and technically I could film a blue car and change the color (though it will be a lot of work to get it just right):


For example, you can see the red lawnmower and tail lights turning green. B&W is too dark as well.

So I'd still love to get an actual yellow/silver/grey car (yellow being the real ideal), but the blue conversion is a good backup!

Might be headed the 3D model route. This one is decent, though right hand drive, so I have to fix that!

OK. Here is an option for you. I have a '97 yellow Esprit. David T has an updated interior. I don't think you see the interior and exterior at the same time. Are you interested?

Yes, I believe that could work! A yellow exterior like yours would be perfect. I'll followup via PM. Thanks!

Hi adaman,
Thanks for reaching out. I tried to PM you but did not see that option (maybe since your account is new?). Maybe you can try to PM me instead.

Same at this end, can't see a PM option. Frustrating.
