Why an Esprit: Living near Hethel as a child and seeing The Spy Who Loved Me when I was 10! Always said I'd have one – all my friends doubted it would ever happen!
Upgrades: Recenctly had £14k mechanical and cosmetic restoration with SJ Sportscars in Credition. She's had new brakes, new flywheel/Clutch, recon Turbo, wastegate, new manifolds, new stainless exhaust, multiple seals, water pump, alloy fuel tanks, new carpets, new door handles, new body trim, new front bumper and lots and lots of other bits... Some areas of bodywork re-sprayed – still some paint chips to sort and some scuffed rims to address - but she's running better than ever!' Problems: Things seizing up through lack of use! Info:
