Good find! I haven't seen one of those in years. I remember it being on the cover of Car and Driver back in the day.

I absolutely love these cars. I'd still like to get my hands on a 3.9L SC. My Father was looking at Esprits in the early 80's and we went to Rothrock. They were also Bitter dealers and tried talking us into one of them. The cars had beautiful body work and interior trim matched with an Opel drivetrain.

i allways thought of bitters as the worst stamped steel styling to rust out of ferrari, dodgy interior quality, and a bland drivetrain to make a car with little interest - never understood the fascination personally. i remember whenthey were new, wasn't impressed then - and the design has not aged well imo. - so many other great performance sedans from that era... why take that hunk
