This is the 30th Lotus Esprit ever made. Chassis number 129G means it was an original RHD car first registered in September 1976 and 7 cars after the Bond car used in the film The Spy Who Loved Me. It is an original white car with the tartan interior which is now tax free due to its age. It was restored over a period of 9 years and every nut and bolt was replated with numerous invoices to prove the work done. It was restored to original spec and still retains the original pod wing mirror, centre ashtray, green tonneau cover, complete toolkit, jack, bag and handle (I don't know of another car which still has all of these original features). It even has the original owner's manual still in the plastic wallet from the original dealer. The only modifications are electronic ignition, 3 Kenlowe fans and an uprated starter motor with higher torque (the original starter motor has been kept and will be supplied). It has never had a sunroof and has never been in an accident. The chassis was blasted and repainted along with a full body off restoration with a photo record of the work done. There are probably only 100 RHD series 1 cars left now so this is a rare car and turns heads wherever it goes. This particular car was featured in the Spring edition of Practical Classics and was also on display at the NEC for their Restoration Show a short while ago. It has an MOT until July 2018 (with no advisories) and has just had a full service including the cam belt.
