  1. Financial pressures meant I had my car listed a few months ago, in the end I held onto it – but the pressures have come back so sadly it’s back on the market. Cover star for Absolute Lotus (main feature) in August 2021, it’s a 2011 2+2 manual in Ardent Red with black (wrap) roof, sills and splitter as per the black pack on the Sports Racer. 345bhp supercharged. Also like the Sports Racer, it has Sports, Premium and Tech packs – so includes niceties like full recaro leather, sports mode, raised rev limit, reversing camera, rear parking sensors, cruise control, Bluetooth, leather armrest, heated seats, subwoofer, tyre pressure monitoring and gloss black forged 19/20” wheels. Car is in excellent condition, with Ian Stent, editor of Absolute Lotus referring to the car as ‘factory fresh’, and ‘one of the best Evoras I’ve ever driven’. There are some tasteful upgrades from stock to bring the car up to date, including: Upgraded Pioneer Avic head unit with *CarPlay* Premium Pack Sport Recaro seats (black with red stitching) Retrimmed leather steering wheel Upgraded aluminium gear knob Custom matching red mats (originals remain underneath) 2bular 3rd cat bypass pipe Other notes: Excellent gearbox action – no stickiness or recalcitrance. New clutch in 2019, only 6k miles ago. New aircon compressor & condenser, reversing camera, gas struts and stainless mudguard brackets at last service. New passenger window regulator since then. Discs and pads good condition all round, front pads recently changed. Tyres good condition all round. Car does not leak or squeak! (Not a given with Evoras) Some stone chips but paintwork generally in excellent condition. Passenger airbag nice and flush. Full Lotus Service history including £6200 full C service at PJ Lotus in 2019 (to include new clutch) and £5000 spent at at Bell and Colvill in 2021/2022 for most recent services and to get the car exactly as it should be. Full details available on request. Solid history of what work has been done and when/where, car is also well known to Lotus Silverstone. Happy to share full health report from B&C on most recent service. Mileage: 66k. Two keys. Two previous owners (in addition to original selling dealer, JCT600) . Viewings / inspection welcomed. Car is in NW London. Finally, bad bits: very few compared to most S1 Evoras! Wheels have a few scuffs. Trim on passenger door by window has come away slightly (common fault). Couple of repaired chips in the windscreen. That’s it! If you want an S Sports Racer but don’t want to pay Sports Racer money, this car is about as close as you’re going to get. £34,500 Either call/text/whatsapp me on 07813 829428 or email on [email protected] The post 2011 Lotus Evora S – Manual / 2+2 appeared first on Click to view item
  2. The time has come to part with my very rare Eclat 2.2. 71k miles. Sadly due to loss of storage the car has to go. I bought the car in Nov 19 and during lockdown spent countless days improving the car as I intended to keep long term. Work included: New starter Full carb rebuild Cambelt summer 20 New alternator New coil / leads / plugs Full front suspension rebuild including springs and shocks Front and rear brake rebuild (nightmare of a job!) New servo Rebuilt master cylinder Interior strip and partial refresh Headlight motor repair New battery Replaced fuel gauge and sender New headlining Refurbished wheels and new tyres 2021 I’m sure there is more, I’m just checking the files! The car interestingly was bought with bucket seats and since found whilst playing with the engine that it has been upgraded so must have been used as a fast road car in the 90s. I have no paperwork for this but it has high compression and is very fast! The paintwork is good, though there is a small bit of crazing on the roof. There are small bits that need touching up but it really does shine well. Interior has not been completed and does let the car down to an extent, though the headlining has been done. I won’t get back the money (or time) I’ve put into this so looking for an enthusiast to move on to. Car was MOTed in Jan 21 before becoming tax and MOT exempt and has been driven this summer with no issues. The post Lotus Eclat S2.2 appeared first on View the full article
  3. I’m selling the BOE intake from my Evora S, as I’m returning the car to stock for sale. This makes an amazing difference to the sound of the car- you get a real addictive supercharger whine, much more so than you get from the stock intake. It tidies up the engine bay a lot too. Good condition other than a bit of paint rub/small dent where it was mounted against the brace in the engine bay (you can just face this side down so you never see it). It includes a vacuum pod which means the exhaust valve will operate as normal (without this vacuum pod your exhaust will be in loud mode basically all the time), the ITG filter inside, and all the clips etc you need. Very easy to install, it only takes 10 minutes to get this in once the old airbox is out. £300. Collection from Swanley (London/Kent border) preferred, but UK postage available at additional cost. Thanks, Joe The post Evora S BOE intake (+ vacuum pod) appeared first on Click to view item
  4. I am selling the 2bular valved exhaust from my Evora S. It’s this exhaust, with stainless pipes, and includes the decat pipe. It’s been on the car for approx 10,000 miles, it’s in great condition. It completely transforms the experience of driving the car- it’s nice and civilized with the valve closed but an animal with it open! Easy to install if you have even basic mechanical knowledge. Collection from Swanley (London/Kent border). I can look into postage at additional cost if needed. £1,200 ono Thanks, Joe The post Evora S 2bular valved exhaust appeared first on Click to view item
  5. I’m considering selling my 430. Arguably one of the highest specs out there: Full front, sides and carbon ppf (including roof and side sills) Aim dash with fully integrated aim smartycam Full alcantara dash Colour coded supercharger (yellow) Colour coded wing end plates (black) Colour coded steering column (black) Colour coded tow strap (yellow) Lotus track exhaust GF Williams mirrors (and Originals that are body coloured) Focal sound system upgrade including sub covered in acoustically transparent material Lotus 3D letters USB charging point on drivers side as well as passenger 9.7k miles One owner (I have owned since new) bought from bell & colvill 69 plate 1 of 2 in this colour from factory with the other in Australia Just serviced and always maintained by bell & colvill B&C and octane collection value it between £92-94k Message me if you’re interested. I’m in no rush to sell, but I have my eye on something else and will let fate decide if I move on…… The post Exige cup 430 appeared first on Click to view item
  6. One of the first final editions, registered in April ‘21. Supplied to me new in Elise grey with bronze wheels and spoiler uprights, tan interior with yellow stitching throughout. Other options include; Alcantara Steering Wheel, Interior Colour Pack – Body Colour, Alcantara Sill Covers, Yellow Brake Callipers, Air Conditioning, Floor Mats, Full Carpets, Cruise Control, Sound Insulation, Stereo & Speakers, 2 Piece J hook Brake Discs Ceramic paint protection, Soft top PPF to front clam. Reluctant sale but I possibly have an Emira incoming, also, after falling in love with this Exige, I want to “tinker” with one and don’t feel a genuine 390 FE is the right car to mess about with. more images and videos on my Instagram @the_last_exige The post Exige 390 final edition appeared first on Click to view item
  7. 1981 Turbo Esprit Dry Sump, black with full black leather, this car was rebuilt mechanically around 7 years ago by renown specialist GST Performance under the supervision of its previous owner @bazza907 in my ownership it has only touched by either GST or our very own @Sparky, in fact tomorrow 6th Aug it is having a full A service and Carb rebuild. I have replaced the original cooling fans with the PNM upgrade but have kept the original cowlings and fans. It has 2 new Vredestein rear tyres i do however still have the original Eagle NCT’s. Mechanically the car is in excellent condition the body is good too fair, with the original paintwork. Interior is also excellent, It comes with both indoor and outdoor TLF covers, a new battery, including trickle charger, I have the boxed Lotus certificate of provenance which will also come with the car, i may change my mind about that though. I have this week registered it for Historic Road tax status so that no longer needs to be paid, the current MOT runs out 14/09/22, even though it is exempt I would be happy to put a new MOT on it should the new owner require it. It’s been an absolutely brilliant car, but it is time to move on to a more modern Lotus, then sit back and watch Esprit’s go stratospheric, which is what normally happens when I sell a car. Absolute Lotus Magazine featured the car in an early edition if you would like to read some more about it. thanks for looking Please get in contact should you require anymore information. Now not looking forward to all the, “don’t sell it” comments on the forum!! The post 1981 Dry Sump Esprit appeared first on Click to view item

  10. A rare opportunity to acquire a Final Edition Lotus Exige 390 Sport, finished in metallic white. The 390 has 397 bhp, 47 more than the 350 Sport it replaced, and has the same charge cooled supercharger as the sport 410. It surges to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 172 mph. The 390 is also the rarest of the final edition Exiges (less than 40 were made for the UK I am reliably informed). At a recent Lotus drivers’ club meet I was told more than once that the car sounds ‘epic’, and it really does, especially as I had the button for keeping the exhaust valves open at lower revs reactivated. The car was registered at the start of August 2021 and so still has 2 years left on its manufacturer’s warranty. It had its running in service in September of last year. This is a very reluctant sale prompted by the fact that I am moving to the U.S. The car is in excellent condition and comes with its hard top and the following optional extras: Black forged wheels Metallic white paint Essex Blue interior colour pack yellow break callipers Alcantara/leather seats Alcantara steering wheel Sound insulation Cruise control Dab stereo plus speakers Air conditioning Floor mats Full carpets Reactivated button for keeping exhaust valves open at all revs (sounds fantastic). Soft-top conversion (soft-top not included but available for an extra £1000). This is, to my knowledge, the only 390 available for sale today. No time wasters please.

  14. An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a NA Evora IPS 2+2 with an incredible specification. Stunning Solar Yellow paintwork with black ‘Sports racer’ wrap. Don’t rule out an IPS without trying it. Forum folklore says early Evora manuals can be a lottery of poor shift quality and expensive clutch changes, the IPS does away with all that. The IPS is an effortless cruiser and in auto mode it feels like the ultimate GT. In contrast you can select ‘Sport’ mode which provides a lightning throttle response and awesome auto blips on down changes. If you want full control you can select manual mode and perform all your own shifts using the lovely metal paddles. This car has all the Packs (Sport/Tech/Premium) meaning double DIN radio headunit, extended leather, heated front seats, leather arm rest, Black painted brake calipers, cross drilled discs, Sport Button, reversing camera, cruise control etc. Best of all, it is a 2+2. The 2+2 Evoras are becoming highly desirable now that the new Emira has been released in 2 seat configuration only. Sought after Lotus Sports Exhaust (Janspeed) which was an expensive factory option. The sound has been further enhanced with a Larini 3rd Cat Delete Pipe (original 3rd cat supplied with car if purchaser wishes to return to standard). These 2 modifications give the Evora the sound it was always crying out for, a lovely burble on startup and intoxicating howl at high revs without being obnoxious. It has the larger 19/20 inch Forged Alloys which came on the Evora S (optional extra on NA). Alloys were professionally refurbished last week and finished in Matt Black powdercoat which looks stunning against the Solar Yellow paint (see final image for example of the newly refurbished wheel, all other images were taken before the refurb and illustrate the wheels with grey paint and diamond cut face) Original Alpine radio headunit has been upgraded to a far superior Pioneer model with Apple Carplay and Android Auto but still retains reversing camera functionality. MOT until 12 March 2023. Exceptional Full service history from Lotus dealerships and highly regarded independent “Back On Track”. The big 4 year service, including Transmission Fluid was completed last year (August 2021) by ‘Back on Track’. This years service was completed last month (June 2022), also by ‘Back on Track’. 2 x ‘Continental Sport Contact 7’ Rear Tyres fitted on 1st March 2022. New cross drilled front and rear brake discs with Ferodo DS2500 pads fitted in the last 1000miles. There are a number of common faults that present themselves with used Evoras, failed dooor locks, headlight lacquer peel, warped airbag cover. This car has NONE of those issues, it is just ready for its new owner to use and enjoy! This car has been my daily drive this year and has performed faultlessly, covering over 7000miles in this time. I did advertise the car back in March when I got a new car but decided I would keep the Evora until the start of July so that I could take it on one final road trip to the Le Mans Classic in France. The Evora covered the 800mile round trip effortlessly. I am a firm believer that cars need to be both used and maintained in order to give reliability, that is exactly what I have done with this car and I believe it is all the better for it. Sensible offers only please, I can’t imagine another NA IPS 2+2 with all the packs appearing on the market any time soon. This car is priced fairly given the incredible specification, condition and spot-on maintenance. The post 2011 Lotus Evora NA IPS 2+2 (Sport | Tech | Premium) appeared first on Click to view item
  15. For sale is my 2014 Lotus Evora S. • Sport Racer (all packs) • Manual • 2+2 • 15,200 miles (it will be used so will go up a tiny bit) Fully loaded with all the extras as per the Sport Racer spec, and in a very rare Daytona Blue- this was a specially ordered colour not available on the factory options. It also has been upgraded with the GTE carbon spoiler (I will also include the original spoiler) by the previous owner. The car is in fantastic condition all round. The bodywork, wheels, and paint are excellent, as is the interior (No dashboard warping either). There are no faults- everything works as it should. Vastly over-serviced based on mileage, always by Lotus themselves or a Lotus specialist. Its most recent service was in May at Bell and Colvill. Services at: 1,018 / 7,078 / 7,500 / 8,571 / 13,943 miles. Tyres are Michelin Pilot Sport 4S’s all round, with 6mm left on the front and 4mm on the rear. Plenty of life left in the brake pads and discs, as you’d expect at this mileage. Both keys and all paperwork, original brochure etc supplied. Smoke free, pet free. There is no finance on the car. I’m happy to answer any questions you have, just get in touch. I don’t think you’ll find a more stunning example of a supercharged Evora, it’s a fantastic car and turns heads everywhere it goes with the bright colour and GT4 wing. Unfortunately I need a more practical car and don’t have the space to keep this as well. Any test drives will be driven by myself, unless you have evidence that you have fully comprehensive insurance on the car. I’m based right by J3 on the M25. You may notice from a HPI or MOT check a discrepancy in the mileage- this is due to the instrument cluster being replaced under warranty at 4,583 miles (due to a sticky speedo), so the odometer reset to zero at this point, and the Odometer on the dashboard reads 4,583 miles less than the cars true mileage. Lotus can correct this if you like. I have all the receipts from the Lotus dealership and a stamp in the service book relating to this for peace of mind (shown in the images too). More pics to come once it’s been cleaned properly on the weekend! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Full details and specifications…. Sport Racer spec includes the following packs: • Sport Pack • Tech Pack • Premium pack • Premium Suede-tex (Alcantara) trim pack. Sport Racer features: • Black leather Recaro (heated) sport seats with red piping • Black contrasting details: roof / wing-mirrors / front splitter / alloys / side-sills / diffuser / light bezels & badges • 19/20″ forged ‘design’ alloys (immaculate, no chips) • Power folding, heated door mirrors • Reversing camera • Slate-grey suede-tex with red stitching • Gunmetal dashboard panels • GB badges on the sides Sport pack: • Valved exhaust • Sport mode (increased RPM limit, sports exhaust on, sharper throttle response) • Cross-drilled brake discs • Red AP racing calipers.

  16. This Exige started life in 2014 as a Roadster with Premium and Race packs. It was previously owned by a Lotus enthusiast and Hangar 111 customer. The vehicle has been serviced and maintained with no expense spared since new. Performance-wise it is exceptional, and earlier this year ahead of the sale, Hangar 111 stripped the bodywork, repainted and PPF’d the front clamshell and sills to remove a few stone chips that it picked up over time. The whole car has just undergone a complete paint correction and wax polish by Hangar 111’s detailer and it looks immaculate. The carbon fibre is genuine pre-preg from industry leaders Reverie and is genuine carbon – not a coating, a print or a vinyl. It has a natural satin finish and looks amazing next to the grey metallic paint. The interior is ruby red leather with black leather dash and steering wheel. The hard top is fully lined. Reluctant sale but space is needed for new projects! Please note that the private number plate is not part of the sale. Must be seen and driven! Recent Works Completed: Stone chips repainted on front clam and sills Complete paint correction by detailer Paint Protection Film application – Front, Splitter and Sills New windscreen (was a small stone chip in centre) Brake Discs & Pads Complete AC System Replacement & Regeneration Full Service & MOT New Battery The car has the following upgrades fitted: Komo-Tec EX460 – 456bhp/500NM JRZ Race Suspension – Road/Track Setup Springs and Damping Lotus Sports Exhaust Hard Top Roof (Colour Coded) Soft Top Roof Reverie Pre-Preg Carbon Fibre Front Splitter Reverie Pre-Preg Carbon Fibre Rear Wing with Alloy Uprights Reverie Pre-Preg Carbon Fibre Side Scoops Pagid Brake Pads Avon ZZR Semi Slick Tyres Viewing strictly by appointment with Hangar 111, please contact us to arrange.

  17. This 2014 Exige S V6 Coupe comes originally factory specified with Premium pack. Having covered 19700 miles, and with three previous owners, the metallic Carbon Grey paint, with red leather interior, represents the overall cared-for condition of the car. First registered in June 2014, the vehicle has been correctly maintained, with a documented Lotus service history. It has just been serviced and as such is ready to go for summer motoring. The vehicle has a soft top conversion, and an excellent condition soft top roof is included in the sale. In addition to the standard specification, this particular car is fitted with the Komo-Tec EX430 performance upgrade. This includes optimised exhaust manifolds and sports cat, upgraded supercharger pulley, carbon fibre air intake, and optimised ECU remap, to deliver approx 425bhp and 345lb/ft. This gives the car a serious performance upgrade. Viewing strictly by appointment with Hangar 111, please contact us to arrange. The post Lotus Exige S – V6 EX430 appeared first on Click to view item
