I would value that at around 8-9k ?

 

I wonder what the chassis is like...

The more the merrier :yes:

The chassis looks as though it has surface rust so I'd assume it's gone in the usual places. There's a nasty crack on the door and black is a nightmare to try and match. But it looks complete and well worth restoring if anybody is brave enough.

 

The estimate is reasonable but who knows and of course there's the buyer's premium to add to the hammer price. Wonder if it's got a reserve?

Lotus Esprit [meaning] a 1:1 scale Airfix kit with a propensity to catch fire

They always put a low estimate to pull us in bet it goes to at least 6k plus premium

A good clean up, carbs refitted, belt done and tune up would see it back on the road. Have seen lots worse that are road going. Nice to see another JPS saved. The prices are higher as people are realising how unique they are.

I watched the auction live online from and hour prior and I didn't see anything else sell in excess of it's guide price infact most of the other classics didn't even get in to their guide brackets let alone over them. I think the auctioneer said there were 4 phone bidders, a few commission bids, bidders online and it eventually sold to someone in the room. Bidding started at 6k and went mad, it blew the rest of the lots out of the water in terms sale price in relation to guide but I suppose it was rather on the low side to begin with
