  1. I really don't know, I mean, have you seen the torque figures? If there are 4 wheels spinning, they have almost no grip, then imagine there is a wheel on one side which get sudden traction (I understand it's running on slicks), wouldn't it make the car spin violently like what we can see? I also understand there was basically no traction control enabled on this car (not the street version), so ... seems plausible to me. But I don't pretend to be a pilot, and especially not on such a monster, so maybe I am very wrong.
  2. Why not, I mean, if a left wheel got more grip for any reason it would throw the car to the right, wouldn't it?

  4. Hi, are you referring to this? As far as I know the sticker is not original, and I don't think there were a more limited edition than the GT3 already is. I mean, pretty much any Esprit could be assimilated to a "limited" edition ^^' This GT3 seems to have had its stickers removed (could have been an option to not have them?), and has a Sport 300/S4s rear wing, which is not original on a GT3 (there were no wing at all, and the transom was different/longer to compensate the lack of wing). Also this one has the comfort seats, which is probably original (as an option) but not typical of a GT3 which was designed to have the sports bucket seats. The car looks fine, and the owner might be well known here since it has the 2018 Lotus 70th event sticker on the windscreen.

    I wonder why there are only 3 wheels nuts on each wheel of the coupe? I guess they probably wanted to simplify the car, and then add a bit of lightness.

    On the profile photo (first picture) it's pretty low on the rear axle, isn't it?
