Mechanically, the car is comprehensively serviced, and everything is fully up to date, complete, and in proper running order ---- including A & B services, recent cam belts, and auxiliary belt. All consumables and fluids are fresh, and the car is ready to drive and enjoy.
Cosmetically, the car is outstanding, with the exception of 2 very minor blemishes. There is a small scuff on the passenger side rear wheel, and there is a small scratch on the passenger side door sill (see photos). These occurred while the car was being transported recently. Both are trivial and easy to fix, but neither has bothered me enough to do so.
If you are looking for an original, unmodified, late-edition, Esprit --- I honestly believe you will not find one in better condition than this one --- and particularly in this highly desirable color combination.
This Esprit needs absolutely nothing !!
