Description

The Lotus Elise was introduced in Autumn 1996 as a two-seat, Rear wheel drive, Mid-engined Roadster. The S1 Elise was built around an aluminium chassis with a hand finished fibreglass body which weighed in at just 725kg. This ‘Light Is Right’ philosophy made for a very agile car with an exceptionally low centre of gravity. The S1 Elise is powered by a Rover K Series 1.8 litre engine which produces 118bhp and propels the car from 0-60mph in just 5.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 150mph.

The Lotus Elise S1 offered here at Autostorico is a 1998 “S plate” which is finished in Yellow Mustard metallic with Green leather interior. Having covered a mere 5,913 dry miles this as new, three owner example, was supplied through Haydon Cars Ltd, a Lotus main agent. Over and above the standard specification this truly stunning car benefits from the following factory options; Leather trim, Cobra Alarm system, Radio fitting kit and Carpet mats.
Supplied with a history file including original book pack, order form, Invoices and MOT certificates.

This is the perfect opportunity to own an unmolested British Sportscar classic which will certainly appreciate further over time.
