Loads more new parts, too much to list...........
The car is quick for a DeLorean and as can be seen extremely well maintained
The interior is in very good condition and original apart from the seat covers, dash is slightly sun-burnt but not cracked and only noticeable in certain light/angle (one of the last jobs to do)
The binnacle has been recovered by Lee Pattison and is in mint condition.

This is one of the nicest and most ‘sorted’ turnkey DeLoreans in the UK, it is held in high regard by the community and probably the fastest non turbo car.

£45K ONO

Lovely cars but parts supply isn’t quite as ready available as the D, especially if you get a early dry sump! A few good specialists around though who make the parts in their sheds ;)

Good luck with the sale Dan and feel free to ask if you want any Lotus advice, for what it’s worth lol

Cool, assumed as much.

This Essex Esprit turbo is lovely, and considered as the pick of the bunch as rare as RHS although a few up for sale at big money currently, and this is considered cheap for that particular model, but I believe this one has sat for a while so might well need some money spent on it to bring it up to A1.

IMHO the best Lotus forum worth joining up for advice and infohttps://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/

Nothing as good as DeLorean Go ;) but a few ok vendors http://pnmengineering.com and https://www.sjsportscars.com

And you have got our very own Mr Dunster for parts but he is a bit crap ;) https://www.deroure.com

Has someone bled to death inside that Essex turbo? Wow that red interior is properly offensive.
I know it was the 80’s, but there really is no need
