Lotus Elise S2 K-Series Long Tail Roof 1.8 120BHP
Lotus Elise S2 K-Series engine long tail roof
This car has been my pride and joy for many years and after making the decision to start a family i'm afraid its time for the car to go. I looked at selling the wife and child on the internet and keeping the car but apparently thats illegal so I guess the car will have to go...
I've owned the car for a few years and whilst owning it i've been through with a fine tooth comb removing all the annoying little things that my S1 had. (Full list below)
It was sorned for 2 years when my son was first born due to not having the time to drive it.
This is a true drivers car. There are no driver aids, nothing to keep you on the road other than Lotus' amazing engineering and your right foot.
You will never find a car that drives like a Lotus, no matter how you try and put it into words you just have to drive one and experience it for yourself.
As worded by Mr Clarkson they "corner like its on rails"
So down to a description of the car :
It has a full service history either by Lotus themselves or Lotus specialist's
Original hand book, tool kit and 2 sets of keys
Original owner specced the lotus sports exhaust from the factory, paired with the upgrades listed below makes the car sound superb.
Upgraded head gasket to resolve the dreaded K-series head gasket failure
The car has recently had a full respray carried out to bring it up to show standard. As you can imaine with a car this age and being made of fiberglass they do deterote.
Upon getting the car ready for the road again it had all oils, fluids and filters replace to get it recomissioned.
Original plates fitted due to private plate being retained.
The work I have had done to the car :
Upgraded door striker pins to remove the annoying rattle when driving along
Bluetooth stereo fitted with mic hidden behind instrument cluster for hands free
Upgraded K&N cold intake fitted to improve airflow to engine
Original throttle body removed and replaced with upgraded throttle body for increased power
Replaced brake master cylinder
New rear callipers
Braking system removed and replaced with upgraded braided hoses and filled with performance fluid
Drilled discs with upgraded pads
3d LOTUS badge on rear fitted when car was resprayed
Full set of rare Yokohama Neova's fitted to the car last MOT which have barely been used.
New battery 3 months ago
New alternator and belt
The car has always been stored in a garage, never outdoors. It has only ever ran on 97 octane minimum since owning the car. Everything that has ever needed doing has been done. As i said, it was and is my pride and joy and I will be very sorry to see it go.
When coming to purchase the vehicle please bring a friend to restrain me whilst you fill out the log book and drive off.
