Lots of money invested to maintain the car at the fantastic condition it is in. The car lives in a garage all year round and has not intentionally seen rain for the last three years. Less than 5000 miles done in the three years. As far as I know the car has not been tracked, although I’m sure it would be a breath taking experience. Low mileage for its age – 63,300 miles.
The car has a complete service history presented in display book, ranging from all MOT certificates, service receipts and the original certificate of conformity issued by Lotus. The car has been loved and looked after by its previous enthusiasts. I have had the car looked after by the same Lotus specialist as the previous owner. The specialist knows the car really well and I would be happy to put you in touch if you wanted an independent view on the car!
The car is professionally clay barred and machine polished twice a year. Recent machine polish carried out and car will be presented as such. The paint work is in superb condition for a car that is 16 years old. Pictures do not do the mirror finish paint justice. Wheels are pristine, unblemished with no sign of any curbing or damage. Full refurb and paint in gloss black in March 2015.
The car comes with a soft top roof in great condition. I have also purchased a hard-top roof. The roof does require a respray to match the high standard I have been holding this car to, but is in decent condition. These cost £895 new via eliseparts. I am happy for the right price to include this in the sale. The hardtop roof does reduce noise and is a little more comfortable in colder weather, as well as giving the car a different look.

This car is fitted with ProBax leather bucker seats, and they live up to their reputation as the most comfortable seats in the world. A must for any Lotus Elise. Four upgraded Alpine speakers provide excellent sound quality. The car also has a sports exhaust system and along with the Hurricane induction kit you can’t help but smile when it starts up.
Pictures really do not do this car justice, first to see will buy. You will be getting one hell of a car. I will genuinely be sad to see her go.

Stunning to drive and the day-to-day-liveable spec coupled with loads of torque right through the rev range mean a car that I would actually have used every day if it weren't for my work demo Passat!
Oh and my car has been on Top Gear TV program - how cool is THAT?!
