Peter Allen's 1981
Peter Allen from Bolton, UK owns a 1987 S3 in Black, with a Black interior.
S3 Year: 1987 Colour: Black Interior: Black Driving Style: Fast Miles per year: 2,000 4,000 Owned Since: Feb 2005 Purchase from: Private Serviced at: Haven't yet! Other Cars: Mercedes C220 Previous Lotus': None Why an Esprit: Dreamt of owning one since I passed my driving test 18 years ago. Had to be an S3. Never considered anything else. Upgrades: Blue Flame stainless exhaust system - not fitted when pics were taken. Looks totally original but sounds beautiful with an intoxicating crackle on the overrun. Non original gearknob which I intend to change. Problems: Bonnet hinge detached due to tired glass fibre. 300 quid for new bonnet so I repaired the old one. Time will tell how good my GRP skills are. Info: One of the very last S3's built. Has the HC engine and rake adjustable seats. I have Lotus paperwork confirming only 20 more were built after mine.
