Here we have something very special indeed in this super rare 1 of just 33 Elise Sport 190s.
Originally upgraded at the Lotus factory by the now sadly defunct Lotus Motorsport division the Sport 190 is now one of the rarest model variants in the whole range to date. Some research has uncovered maybe 8 to 10 remaining cars in the UK.
The car is fitted with the VHPD Rover engine which has Jenvey Throttle bodies and a carbon airbox as standard. Cable operated long travel throttle add to the experience with intoxicating noise! Unlike the early "PTP" built VHPD the S2 190 had it's engine assembled in house by Lotus and has a far better reliability record!
This car has been subject to a good degree of recent light restoration and maintenance making it a truly standout example. The car has been detailed/had the dampers refurbished/wishbones cleaned up and rust protected and a cambelt service in 2018. In addition we have added a factory Starlight black hardtop/fresh AD08R tyres and had the wheels painted black as per the original Press car. New OZ stickers were added too.
A remote thermostat was fitted much earlier in the car's life so it runs a solid low 80s water temperature and the engine performance is outstanding. Running a similar power to weight ratio to a 220 Exige S2.
The car is in exceptional condition all over a credit to its former owners. A very rare chance to own a very important car for Lotus' heritage and one of the rarest variants of the early lightweight S2 Elise.
Fitted with S2 Probax motorsport seats and Schroth harnesses.
A CoC is available for export for this car but we would look for offers in excess of the asking price to take such an important car away from the UK in this instance.
PX of other Lotus cars particularly sought. If you have a 111R or Exige and fancy something different we will offer very strong PX prices.
Finance available direct with us with rates from 4% - PCP style lease finance with balloon payments also available. We are FCA regulated Finance providers.
