Carsten Elmose's 1981
Carsten Elmose from Copenhagen, Denmark owns a 1981 S3 in White, with a Beige and green leather
S3 Year: 1981 Colour: White Interior: Beige and green leather Driving Style: Normal Miles per year: 1,000 2,000 Owned Since: December 2005 Purchase from: Dealer Serviced at: Lotus Denmark Other Cars: Jaguar XJ6 1995, Maserati Merak 1972, Peugeot 504 Cabriolet 1983 and Fiat X1/9 1981 Previous Lotus': None Why an Esprit: Ever since I first saw the white S1 Esprit in “The spy who loved me” I have always dreamt of one day becoming the owner of a white Esprit. Have been looking for the right car for considerable time and found it in December 2005. My S3 is the one used by Lotus at the 1981 GSTAAD motorshow. It seems to have some “special” features (maybe because it was a showcar) like full-leather interior, aircondition and a special paint. If anybody knows about this or has seen the car on the GSTAAD motorshow (maybe even have pictures of it – please e-mail me – thanks in advance). The car has driven 46.000 kilometres and has only had one owner before me. The car is imported from Switzerland and has a complete and extensive service history – and is in a fantastic condition. Upgrades: None Problems: None – so far! Info:
As the new pictures shows my Esprit is out for spring. 2006 is my first season as an Esprit-owner and the feeling is gorgeous. I have never driven an Esprit before and it was an amazing experience driving it for the first time.
My Esprit is running just perfect and gear and everything works just great (even reverse!). Think I will be thrilled about the aircon when the weather gets better. So far no plans for improvements.
