I have owned and meticulously maintained and improved on this esprit for the last 9 years and have loved driving it (mainly on weekends).

Body is in great condition with newly fitted 94 model bumper, interior is immaculate, great JVC sound system with cd/dvd player, glass removable sunroof and much more, loads of receipts. I also still have the original wheels and bumper and lights. I have fixed all the usual esprit problems, rusted fuel tanks, rebuilt elec window motors and rebuilt the engine, inspections will not disappoint, selling due to expanding family otherwise I'd keep it. A beautiful and easily maintainable car and certainly one of the finest examples of its year.

1983 S3 Turbo Esprit QLD

Brought from the UK in 98, having spent 3 years under cover in Germany.
This car starts first turn of the key, although not driven, its regulary started, the car is totally straight, electrically and mechanically sound and the trim is good.
The down side on this car is the paint, we paid for a good job but the guy did not put it in the oven, it looked great when we got it back with all new decals etc. at about 12 months later we noticed crazing but the painter had gone with at least 5 other unhappy customers, hence as we had done everything else we decided not to repaint and that could be left to the new owner to do.

Due to the car being sold unregistered although it had been registered in Qld and the condition of the paint ( the spot on the front bumper is where just caught it with a trailer), the pricing reflects this.

The car is great I love it it does everything it should goes round corners, out accelerates most
and the yellow duco with white leather, it turns more heads than BRAD PITT on a nudist beach
But most of all this car has never let me down. And I don't care what people say look after it and use proper parts. These cars are great if you don't like mine buy someone else's!!! JUST BUY ONE.

generally the car needs a new owner with a bit of enthusiasm a good spring clean would do it wonders
