My seventh Lotus and the best I have had, in my view the best of the bunch. I'm selling due to a back injury that means it is that it is getting very little use.
Was a Castle Lotus demonstrator then one private owner up to 5,000 miles and the second from 5,000 miles to 7,500 when I bought it. I sold it in 2014 at 12,789 miles and bought it back again two years later at 14,000 miles. I know each of the previous owners and suffice to say they are 'nearly' as fussy as me when it comes to their cars which means that this has been treated beautifully and regularly serviced strictly by Lotus main dealers. I have all the history, service invoices etc right down to the original purchase invoice + certificate of authenticity from Lotus. This is a unique car in this colour and build specification.
Lotus Motorsport really went to town on these final S2 Cup 260 models to a level that has not been repeated since, especially in terms of the carbon interior . Far too much to list here but if you know your CUP cars then you’ll probably already know most of it. In summary though, it has all the right bits – Armourfend, Accusump, Lotus variable traction control/launch control, HANS FIA spec seats, Torsen torque sensing Limited Slip Differential, CUP plumbed in fire system and engine cut off switches (internal and external), air con, Ohlins fully adjustable suspension. Rear factory fit roll cage, driver and passenger Schroth harnesses. Oh and oodles and oodles of carbon (full roof, engine cover, rear spoiler, front splitter, sill covers, dash).
Has been set up previously at Back on Track at Guildford and drives fantastically. Please note with the fully adjustable Ohlins suspension this is perfectly agreeable for on road use - rides beautifully (better than a standard Exige).
Lotus Motorsport up-rated gear change cables and engine mounts were fitted by Lotus at around 3,000 miles which has really tightened things up nicely and rectified a couple of known weaknesses on the Exige. Currently running the Lotus stage 3 exhaust and TRD airbox but the stage 1 exhaust also comes with the car if you want it a bit quieter.

To complete the package the perfect registration X26 CUP will be included. A really special car, very rare with low miles and lovely condition. Any inspection of the car is very welcome but no time wasters please or trade interest unless it is at the asking price! A safe investment - the prices of these are only going one way - just like the S1 Exige and 340R already have.
Overseas interest is welcome (particularly EU) and i can accept payment in sterling or the euro equivalent of the asking price. The car can be viewed in either UK or France by prior appointment.
