eBay watch: 1970s Lotus Esprit series II sports car

Esprit1

It was good enough for James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me, so this Lotus Esprit series II sports car should be good enough for you.


Actually, the Bond car, as well as employing some poetic licence about its underwater prowess, was an earlier version, but much the same in looks. This 1979 series II is still a head-turner though, especially in that 'Monaco Red' finish and with a recently re-upholstered red and white leather interior and alloy wheels.

According to the seller, this particular model has 91,000 on the clock, but does come with £4,000 of bills, which includes a re-conditioned engine. It is also sold with a 'very rare' genuine factory service manual.

Right now, the car is up at £3,100.
