    I wish the shot had turned out better. I was driving when I caught sight of this beautiful Esprit. Luckily we were both stopped at an intersection so I got this picture of it.

I can confirm it's not a Jim Clark Edition. I had a Jim Clark Edition, and they are all 1991 Esprit SE models with the low wing and early body styling. This is a later year that looks to be an early V8 (1997-2001). The color of this car is a metallic green, while the Jim Clarks were all full-on British Racing Green (a solid dark green with a hint of a yellowish tone), and they had yellow wheel centers and yellow pin stripping.

I was optimistic for you. Still a great classic Lotus to spot. Well done again.

Thanks West, I don't it is because the rims aren't yellow.
