The LOTUS ELISE S1 is a very special car, special because it was what saved LOTUS from bankruptcy back in the 90's. Special because they dont make cars like this anymore due to modern manufacturing regulations which add weight and additional equiptment and also the higher cost to create such a bespoke sports car completely out of Aluminium.
The Elise S1 today is still praised for its pin sharp handling and its ability to entertain the driver behind the wheel. No car handles like the Elise because no car weights as little as the Elise and has a structure so rigid theres is less than 1% flex on the chassis from end to end. As the famous words of founder Sir Collin Chapman "To Add Speed, Add Lightness"
This Motorsport Green Elise is a one of a kind Elise, it has had more upgrades and parts put into it than the total asking price of this car. Throughout its owenrship life it has seen 3 loving owners who have spent time and money on improving and restoring this little Elise. We have had the pleasure of working on this car for the past 6 years and know its history throughtout. All parts put into this Elise are the best you can possibly find and buy. The engine itself is a 135hp unit that has been ported and built by LOTUS Motorsport UK. (engine was shipped to and back) The exhaust is a custome built F1 style full stainless steel with 2 back boxes that produces a sound unlike anything possible from a 1.8Liter displacement engine. The wheels are also special equiptment Technomagnesium alloys. The interior is covered with Nappa leather and red alcantara suede. Seats are orignal Lotus Exige items which are ultra lightweight yet supportive. The list of this cars built is extensive and can be provided to the new owner.
Recently the exterior paintwork has received a Cilajet paint sealant that warranties it for 5yrs. And also a clear film to protect the front end from chips. This is possibly the most desirable Lotus Elise S1 currently on the maket.
