At 16 I started working for a small engineering company.... We make parts for Lotus. One day some guys from lotus came down to see the workshop and three guys turned up in three black Esprits.... And I thought one day Im going to have one of them...And that day is now here... And its fantastic...Must say after driving it for a few weeks I thought what the hell have I done buying this.... Cant see anything out the back, getting in & out is a art on its own parking is a pain with no power steering. Then driving down the high street I looked in the shop window and saw this beautiful car in the reflection and WOW... That’s why I brought it.... I’ve now learnt how to drive it and now I don’t no what all the fuss was about..... No problems as yet but hey I’ve only had it 2 months..... My esprit is a limited edition number 36 of 40 in pearlescant white. if any body has the same limited edition would be good to hear from you....
