1979 LO­TUS ES­PRIT ‘COM­MEM­O­RA­TIVE’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

This, one of the first lim­ited edi­tion Lo­tus Esprits, is known col­lo­qui­ally as the ‘JPS’, its now-iconic black and gold liv­ery an homage to the cham­pi­onship-win­ning ground-ef­fect Lo­tus 79s driven in pe­riod by Mario An­dretti and Ron­nie Peter­son. This car, the 99th built, is the last UK car and has just emerged from a pri­vate col­lec­tion, hav­ing been me­chan­i­cally over­hauled in 2007. It comes with a raft of old MoTs and a let­ter of au­then­tic­ity from Lo­tus.
