Proud new owner. I've been lusting after Esprits for 40+ years. After looking seriously for about a year and a half, finally found this one--#54 of 88. My appreciation was largely driven by aesthetics of the car--after driving one I've realized the feel and sound are just as awe-inspiring.

Looks great! Same color as the James Bond lotus. I remember the spy who loved me was the first bond movie I watched as a child so thought it was a super cool car then.

This one is Pearlescent White. Bond Esprit S1 was just white. I say "just" white, but that too was striking. I saw Spy Who Loved Me when I was 6. That's what got me into this situation I now find myself. I went back and watched it with my teenage son the other night. One thing I didn't recall was the sound of the engine in the movie... no post production messing with sound on part of Pinewood Studios--it's very similar to mine. Beautiful.
