Andre Cauchon's 1985

Andre Cauchon from Quebec, Canada owns a 1985 Turbo Esprit in Red, with a Cream interior.


Turbo Esprit
Driving Style:
Crazy....but with the lotus, I try to be more user friendly!!!
Miles per year:
2,000 - 4,000
Owned Since:
August 1996
Purchase from:
I purchase the car in september from a friend who have it for 7 years, dont have much time to play with my new toy, because in Quebec the cold wheathers and the snow forces me to store the car
Serviced at:
l do all the work myself, I'm a mechanic
Other Cars:
Austin Mini rally car with rear wheel drive and 165hp and a Toyota Echo 2004
Previous Lotus':
It's my first lotus, here it's very rare, its probaly the only one here in the country
Why an Esprit:
I love this car, I've had about 92 cars and this one is so beautiful! it,s like my baby and I take care of it, I think the look is so attractive
Upgrades: The car has had some money spend with the previous owners, and he didn't drive it that much, more time at the garage than on the road. The car is in the original form, minus the bumper and louve paint red
The only thing not working is the front and rear bonnet shock, and the rear tyres are worn, I'm having difficulty finding hi-performance replacements. Some times at cruise, the carburators have flooded, and the dash has some vibration at 200 and more, don't know if it's normal with a fiberglass car
