  1. Azure Blue with Black Leather Interior The specification of this Lotus includes: Radio/CD Black Mohair Hood Alloy Wheels Driving Lights Produced from 1996 to 2000, the S1 Elise all have the Rover K series engine. In the standard version this produces 118bhp and although not huge amounts of horse-power, the very light weight of the car (725kg) means performance is excellent with 0 – 60mph being possible in 5.6 seconds. Service history 1 owner from new and known to us. A very attractive Series 1. Like all our cars, this Lotus will be supplied fully checked over and serviced and with a new MOT. It will also be HPI checked and if sold for use within the UK, will come with a comprehensive warranty The post Lotus Elise S1 appeared first on Click to view item
  2. For sale is my 50th Anniversary Lotus Esprit S4. The car is Calypso Red over a Raven (black) interior. I am the third owner. The car only has just over 51,000k genuine km’s on it. Car has only been used since then to keep everything moving. The car has always been garaged and covered. Registration is paid to 23rd September 2022. Exterior: I have had all of the stone chips repaired in the paintwork in March 2020. The car has done very few km’s on the road since to preserve the paintwork for the new owner. PPF film has been redone as per the Lotus original film. The car comes with a matching composite roof and wind deflector. Both of these have been repainted as well. I have also purchased the correct seal material for when the composite roof is on the car. This is brand new and has not been installed. There is also a genuine sunroof bag. Interior: All of the leather in the car is genuine and in excellent condition. There is some slight wear on the drivers seat rear RH bolster All original carpets in the cabin and the boot of the car are in excellent condition. Extras: The car also has the original owners manual. Short version of the Lotus service manual. ABS brake system manual. The original jack, spare wheel and toolkit in its case are also with the car. Test rig for the ABS brake system that is on the car. This was sourced from LotusMarques in Boronia. New AC drier & camshaft seals. The following has been done to the car. C Service carried out in December 2019. Engine valve clearances have been recorded and are all ok. Timing belt was replaced. Belt tensioner also replaced. All v-belts replaced. Power steering pump has been replaced. Gearbox output shaft seals have been replaced. Rolled pins have been replaced and sealed. All brake pads were checked as part of the C service. All are ok. Air filter was replaced. All primary and secondary injectors have been removed, serviced and all seals replaced. Engine oil replaced. Oil filter replaced. Gearbox oil replaced. Power steering fluid replaced. Coolant replaced with distilled water and treated with Redline Water Wetter. The car has 4 new tyres. Bridgestone Potenza RE003 all round. Engine:. EBPV butterfly and shaft have been removed as not required in Australia. The mechanical charge cooler pump has been replaced with an electric pump kit sourced from LotusMarques in Boronia, Victoria. Coolant bottle has a new level sender. Body: Drivers side door window winding regulator had caused damage to the door structure. The damage was cut out and the door has been repaired with fibreglass and the window regulator has been reinstalled. The undertray of the car is also in place and in excellent condition. Suspension & steering: All front wishbone bushings have been replaced. Rear shock absorber shock to body rubbers have been replaced. Ball joint dust seals and retaining springs have been replaced. Brakes & Clutch: The red hose on the car has been replaced with a copper line from the clutch master cylinder to the clutch slave cylinder. Self-adjusting handbrake mechanisms on both sides of the car have been overhauled. Aluminium plates have been installed on the lower front wishbones to assist with diverting air to the brakes to aid in cooling. This model year was fitted with the Brembo brakes from Lotus. Other: The car has just had a new battery installed. (RACV. Receipt for warranty is in the paperwork) Headlight relay has been changed to a double throw so that all four lights are on when hi-beam is selected. Issues: Air conditioning. There is a leak somewhere in the system which I have not been able to find. Even with UV dye in the system, myself and the A/C company that I was using (WA) were unable to ascertain where the leak was. The CD player had just ceased to function. Radio still works. I have not replaced the single DIN unit, as generally people are quite particular as to what functions they want a new unit to have, so I will leave this to the new owner. No tyrekickers. I expect you to know what you are looking at and the history of Lotus cars. I will not entertain people that are thinking they will be getting a joyride. Without a doubt, this has been one of the most reliable cars I have ever had the pleasure of owning and driving. It is only due to a change in my personal circumstances that the car is now for sale. I am listing the car for $95,000 I can assure any new owner, that I sincerely believe that you will enjoy this Esprit. This may be the lowest kilometre Esprit S4 in Australia.

  11. Decision made – I’m reluctantly selling my beautiful GT3 – but to buy a V8. Facelift interior, 3 owners and only 34,238 miles (that may increase slightly if weather stays mild before winter storage). Magnolia leather sports seats, Lotus alarm, A/C and Kenwood KDC-9050R Radio/CD. Twin exit stainless sports exhausts were fitted by the last owner (sounds great) but I have also got the original should someone wish to refit it. A CAT bypass pipe is also available – too loud for my neighbours! Also, the Headlights have been upgraded and replaced with a Esprit LED Chrome Headlight Kit from PNM (originals are retained). The paint and interior is in great condition and the underside is very clean. This is as good as I could find and I looked for along time at many. Also, everything works! This is first Esprit I have owned (but not my first Lotus) and I would say the build quality and finish of the GT3’s and later cars got much better than the earlier cars and the later style dash gives a more modern feel. You will see from the photos that the car is standard except for the exhaust and lights mentioned above (It’s hard to find one that’s not been messed around with) and this was a big attraction for me. But it was the overall condition that sold it to me. Last Service and Cam Belt change in February 2020. There is an extensive history file on service and MOT’s that I can share. I have a detailed listing of the history but I can photograph it if anyone would like to see it prior to viewing but it would take me a while.

  12. A Lotus Elise 111R in the superb metallic colour of Canyon Red with a Magnolia leather interior, with a great specification and a documented service history, mostly by main dealers.

Accompanying the vehicle is a comprehensive portfolio of paperwork containing all of the service invoices and all of the MOT certificates acquired during the current period of ownership. The current MOT certificate (no advisories) is valid until March 2022. Should the full asking price be agreed, I will arrange for the vehicle to be serviced and MOT’d prior to collection by the new owner. I have driven the vehicle 130 miles back to South Norfolk and I am pleased to report that it is in fine fettle and wanting for nothing; a real testament to the regular servicing regime above. BUY WITH CONFIDENCE – GUY MUNDAY HAS OVER THIRTY YEARS OF BRAND EXPERIENCE. Located in South Norfolk – the home of Lotus. Collection from Diss railway station always a pleasure.

  13. I have a set of Continental WinterContact TS850P tyres for sale in the Lotus recommended size for the Evora 19″ front and 20″ rear wheels. If anyone has looked, you’ll know these sizes are a pain in the ass to get a matching set for, which is why I have the TS850s rather than the recommended Pilot Alpin 4s. They’re in excellent condition and probably only covered about 3,000 miles this winter, if that. I’m selling them because I don’t have the car anymore. I think these will be good for another two winters unless you drive like an ass or track them, and they weren’t cheap at £950 new! Tread depths are: Fronts: approx. 8-9mm Rears: approx. 7-8mm I would love to add photos, but apparently this platform doesn’t allow photos taken with an iPhone for ‘security reasons’. How odd. If you fire me a message I can send you photos in an email, whatsapp, instagram or any medium of your choosing up to and including carrier pidgeon. I’m not too keen on driving more than about 50 miles to drop these tyres off, sorry!

  15. Hi. I have just bought a 2015 V6 S Exige and had the original exhaust put on the car. The previous owner only had the car for less than 2k miles and had the Signature Series exhaust fitted during his ownership. I know its fine as it was on the car when I test drove it. Hangar 111 Signature Series is designed to meet stringent track noise levels but i wont be tracking my car. By all means come and view. Pick up is best as its heavy and the insurance would be a lot I suspect. I live in Hemel Hempstead. The post Lotus Exige V6 HANGAR 111 QT SIGNATURE SERIES appeared first on Click to view item
  16. I’ve got my Lotus Elise Cup 250 for sale. It’s an early 2017 model and one of the last car before Lotus released the MY17.5 which had smaller aero kit installed. The car comes with: Two sets of wheels: Original OEM forged wheels in matt black with Toyo R888s (great condition, plenty of life left). InoKinetic Ethos Wheels in dark silver with Toyo T1R (perfect condition) + original Lotus logo caps. Rare colour – Pewter Grey in great condition, practically no stone chips or sign of damage. GRP GT Taililights (original lights included in sale). Schroth Harness in black with yellow accents PPF bra installed on front + headlights. OEM exhaust from the My17.5 which sounds a bit nicer (the original exhaust also included). Car has been garaged all its life. A few facts: Full service history + Serviced a few days ago at Back on Track (new brake pads front too) Around 16800 miles done. Aircon Cruise Control Radio + Speakers Extra black leather trim around door sills and cockpit elements. Light racing battery (charger/conditioner included).

  17. Sad to put my cherished Evora up for sale but I need the cash for big sensible life things. And maybe another Lotus but let’s see what shakes out! Cover star for Absolute Lotus (main feature) in August 2021, it’s a 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 Excellent gearbox action – no stickiness or recalcitrance. New clutch in 2019, only 5k miles ago. New aircon compressor, 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 £3500 spent at at Bell and Colvill in 2020/2021 for most recent service 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: 64k. MOT to end of Nov 2021 but will get the car MOTd prior to sale. 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. It’s the cheapest Evora S for sale in the UK at the moment. Unfortunately that means no offers. Will be sad to see it go. £35k Either call/text/whatsapp me on 07813 829428 or email on The post Lotus Evora S – 2+2 manual – Sports Racer spec appeared first on Click to view item
  18. Time to sell my Evora. Lotus Evora S 2+2 with premium and sport packs (2011 model) 38706 miles Stunning solar yellow colour with sport racer style “black pack” wrap on roof, wing mirrors and sills Manual gearbox with upgraded cables Full leather black interior Full service history MOT’d until January 2022 Reverse camera with upgraded Alpine head unit Upgraded clutch master cylinder (Wilwood) fitted earlier this month by a local specialist 2Bular valved exhaust system with carbon tips Winace “GTC” front bumper with carbon fibre inserts Lotus 400 rear bumper Carbon fibre air scoops Carbon fibre front access panel Carbon fibre GT4 rear spoiler Upgraded GRP v3 tail lights Custom made barge boards Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tyres with 6mm+ tread “Hethel Edition” double stripe decals New bonnet badge Recent full service The Evora is in excellent condition and looks stunning with the carbon fibre parts and upgraded bumpers – a lot of money has been spent to get it to look and sound this good; it has to be one of the most striking Evora’s on the road and with the rear seats, the whole family can go out for a road trip The alloys have recently been refurbished in satin black and are in perfect condition. This is an amazing sounding car with the legendary 2bular valved exhaust system and handles as well as it looks. Being the supercharged model, it goes exceptionally well and the manual gearbox is a joy to use with the upgraded cables and upgraded Wilwood clutch master cylinder which was fitted just a few weeks ago (it’s only a matter of time before the original clutch master cylinder needs replaced in these cars). I still have all the original parts (including original front bumper, rear bumper and exhaust system) which are also included if wanted. I have thoroughly enjoyed owning this car over the past 3 years and will be so sorry to see it go. I’m only selling as I am now working from home full time with my job and the car is too good to just sit on the driveway. A couple of minor points to note is some mild wear on the driver’s seat bolster and a small stone chip on the front clam – both could be easily sorted but I haven’t got around to doing it yet. The car will have the original registration number assigned before being sold. I’m located just outside Belfast and could meet any prospective buyer at the port or airport if coming from outside of Northern Ireland. I’m looking for around £37,500.

  20. Interior trim items for S1 Elise. Carbon fibre look but these are not carbon fibre. 3 x dash rail, 1 x instrument cowling, 2 x door trim, 2 x door pull surround trim. Removed from my 1996 S1, as I have refitted the factory original grey trim. These were fitted by the previous owner of my S1 many years ago. I have no idea of the origin. No screws or fixings but easy to find the correct ones – the dash rail trims need no fixings. Condition is good but not mint or perfect. Clean and tidy but these are second-hand and have been on an Elise for many years, so don’t expect perfection. I removed these and fitted the originals myself – if I can do it, just about anyone can.
