Words & photos - Daniel Bevis
Holy cow, Dean Meeson's S3 Esprit has evolved again! As if its conversion to air-ride and Alfa Romeo V6 power weren't enough, Dean squirreled the thing away from view and, when he emerged, knocked the show scene slightly off its axis with this fresh new look. Those astounding wheels are custom one-offs, featuring Excel-inspired centres painted in Land Rover Kaikoura, with really deep lips. And that new paint job? It's actually a wrap, if you can believe it.
There are numerous other detail changes too - I wrote a feature on it for this month's Fast Car magazine, you should grab a copy. Go on, off you pop...
