  1. A rare opportunity to purchase one of the officially recognised last 15 UK Esprits (its status denoted on a brushed aluminium plaque on the glovebox). This Esprit features on the cover of current issue of Absolute Lotus magazine. This V8 SE was delivered in March 2003 and is officially recognised (certificate of provenance from Lotus Cars) as the final Cobalt Blue-coloured Esprit delivered in the UK. Has matching blue/grey full leather interior. It has covered 23k miles and is believed to be one of just 11 of the final batch of 15 UK Esprits that remain in the UK, as three have been exported and one written off. This Esprit is currently on a personal plate that is NOT included in the purchase (will revert to SL03 GDK). It has had two previous owners and has full documented service history and full paperwork provenance. Lotus main dealer annual services and recently maintained by renowned Lotus specialist Max 500 in Guildford who carried out a B Service and timing belt change in June 2021. The car will be offered fresh from service with a new MOT. Full details of the service and maintenance history and documentation available to view to serious enquirers. Open to sensible offers from serious potential buyers. The post 2003 Lotus Esprit V8 SE (final UK batch) appeared first on Click to view item

  3. I have been clearing out our loft prior to moving house, and just found these. They are brand new, unpainted, and fully electric. SJ lists only the LH version at £390, and the right hand is I believe no longer available. The post Citroen CX Door Mirrors – Brand New appeared first on Click to view item
  4. A Lotus Elise S1 in the best colour of metallic Azure Blue, with a Viking Blue leather interior and a blue soft top. The current private plate will be retained and replaced with an ‘R’ registration. Supplied with all the available options when new and with further additions along the way, the comprehensive specification includes… Metallic paint Leather interior Auxiliary driving lamps Radio fitting kit Cobra Category One alarm K&N air filter Elemental shower cape Battery conditioner Bilstein suspension upgrade Red mirror covers – for enhanced visibility to other road users Owned by the same family since 2011, the vehicle was purchased as a gift to the owners’ daughter to be enjoyed when she would be old enough to drive; the plan being to enjoy some quality father/daughter time and to include the odd European trip. Sadly, with a career that involved extensive overseas travel and with life generally getting in the way, this ambition was only very occasionally enjoyed. As a result, the vehicle remained in storage for a period of time, receiving regular care, before being subject to a major service last year. The fully stamped service book confirms the history as follows.. November 1998 4110 miles April 1999 6260 miles August 2000 14101 miles August 2001 18080 miles August 2002 26877 miles July 2003 33471 miles October 2004 42100 miles March 2006 49381 miles September 2008 57670 miles September 2011 59150 miles April 2015 61672 miles There then follows a period of inactivity, until… September 2021 61773 miles The last service, by the local main dealer, was undertaken on a ‘no expense spared’ basis with too much work to mention here but the not-insignificant invoice is here to be inspected when you view the vehicle. Alternatively, please call for a list of completed work. Current mileage is 61890 miles and the MOT certificate is valid until October 2022. Accompanying the vehicle is the full owners pack, most previous MOT certificates since new and, of course, two keys. I have undertaken an HPI check, showing no adverse information and a copy is on file for the benefit of the next owner. The vehicle is in a top mechanical condition and wants for nothing. Cosmetically, the condition is good but the next owner may wish to improve upon this a little, at their leisure. Located in South Norfolk – the home of Lotus. For more information and to arrange a viewing, please call 07718 385168 at any time. Evenings and weekends always a pleasure. Many thanks for looking!

  5. Hi, Me and Matthew Oxley have been working on creating a SS radiator frame for the S1 and S2. So after a lot of fettling and two prototypes we have now successfully had fabricated several of these frames. We had to have more made to get the economies of scale to work for us but that means we have now got a couple left over. This is one of the major weaknesses of all the Esprits. The kit will come with what is pictured i.e. 4 x SS bolts, Spring washers, large washers, aluminium rivnuts… and the frame with components pictured. These really are very pretty things…. Both me and Matt are very happy with the results. As you can see in the pictures; the mild steel original frames are generally battered and rusted through…. First come, first served.. but if there is a really strong demand I can contact the fabricator to have more made up…..

  6. A rare limited edition Elise Type 72 with just 16900 recorded miles. The Type 72 was a 2002 limited edition celebrating probably the most recognisable and most successful Formula One car of all time. Raced for an incredible and unmatched six seasons, the Type 72 rewarded Team Lotus with three constructor’s championships and two drivers’ championships with a career that resulted in an astonishing twenty grand prix wins. For most of this time it was, of course, painted in the famous black and gold livery, recreated on this Elise limited edition. Part of the Heritage Collection Series, unique features include metallic black paint, gold wheels, gold alcantara seat centres, steering wheel centre and door panels. Proudly displayed on each front wing are the gold victors’ laurels, reminiscent of those applied to the rear wing of the race car following each Formula One win. The gold laurels are also embroidered in to the head restraints and a dashboard mounted heritage plaque, in the style of the Formula One chassis plate, confirms its’ limited edition status. This particular example was supplied by North West dealer, Lotus Ribble Valley who also provided it to its’ second owner in 2003. The vehicle was enjoyed sparingly until 2009 when an accident befell the owner, rendering him incapable of enjoying the car for a long while. PJ02 OOD was, therefore, placed in to storage and remained unused until liberated by me in 2021. A programme of repair and replacement has been undertaken to restore the vehicle to its’ former tip-top condition. Mechanical work has included a major service including cambelt, renewal of the braking system, replacement of all fluids and a huge amount more. Cosmetically, the vehicle was preserved in an outstanding condition, in keeping with its’ remarkably low mileage. Accompanying the vehicle is the original owners pack. There are a couple of service stamps, from 2002 and 2003 by Lotus Ribble Valley but, other than that, the next stamp was entered by my company earlier this year upon completion of the remedial works. The MOT certificate, with no advisories, is valid until April 2023. If you are looking for a full service history, this will not be the car for you. In conclusion, a very low mileage example of a rare and very highly regarded limited edition Elise which is now awaiting its’ next caring owner to cherish it and to treat it to the open roads once more.

  9. Hi, I am selling my Lotus Esprit Turbo SE 1990MY. I have owned her for just over a decade now but haven’t driven her for around 8 years. She has covered just over 106k miles but never smoked and always pulled nicely through the gears. I took her off the road and placed her in a barn as I needed the wiring harness for the ECU to complete my long running project (another SE). So the car is looking a little worse for wear on the interior and does require a full retrim. I did start this with varying degrees of success. I would say that she is 98% complete. The only things that are missing that I can see are ECU wiring loom (I do have the connectors from a car previously burned out (the connectors survived but the wiring itself got scorched)), The brake servo, x 2 sunroof tongues (small fixings), x 2 oil coolers and the x 2 light pod motors I have misplaced. All of these items should be easy to replace I would imagine and even if they were present the oil coolers in particular nearly always get destroyed on disassembly. What isn’t pictured but I do have is the engine bay cover, The engine bay compartment, the centre trim and the passenger seat, The centre console with all the dials, Passenger side rear light cluster, a rear wing and the front spoiler, engine plenum (with secondary injectors) drivers side door carcass, drivers side wing mirror and the spare wheel. I also have a big pack of history too in a folder. The paint work is actually passable if you wanted to touch up in certain areas etc. The chassis is solid as you would expect and the place where they all go (near the manifold) was cut out and a new tube professionally spliced in around 9 years ago. This is a project car but I think she could be quite quickly put back on the road if someone wanted to get her back there without the frills. door window frames looked very solid from what I could see. As you can see she was pretty dusty when I went to take photos. Looking at offers around the £10k mark. Please let me know if you are interested.
