Ashorne, United Kingdom


1999 Lotus Elise S1

The vendor has owned the Elise from new. 73,584 miles has been covered and the maintenance books have stamps going back to when it was new, together with the original purchase invoice. The Lotus was last MoT'd in March of this year (expiry 20 March 2022). The car was in good hands and last serviced in March 2019 at 72,638 miles by Lotus South West.
The Lotus comes in a stunning combination of Nautilus Blue, with Cream leather interior. It has a detachable steering wheel and the headlamp covers too.
The car has it's original engine, please don't be confused by the VVC inlet manifold. The vendor configured this to allow the car to breathe more easily. To conclude the car is "matching numbers" and we have been informed that this is a minor change that can easily be reversed. Other work includes a new radiator (2010), new shock absorbers (2019) and is sat on good condition Toyo tyres all around. The body work has stone chips on the front and "trolley scratches" on each rear wing. The vendor has not repainted the car as the rest is original. Photos of damage to the bodywork can be seen in exterior photos.
The car also comes with a bespoke cover and a rain cap. The car is and has been kept in a dehumidified heated garage.
