ELISE S1 – MMC BRAKES, 30,600 MILES, BEST COLOURS, LONG MOT! - - Latest Ads - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content


Recommended Posts

An early example of an Elise S1 in the great colour combination of metallic Storm Titanium with a red leather interior and with just 30600 recorded miles.


Featuring the highly desirable Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) brakes that were an innovative feature of early examples and now sought after amongst collectors.


This particular vehicle has had just four owners in total with the last owner for over sixteen years. Prior to his ownership, the vehicle was serviced five times by Frosts of Shoreham, up to a mileage of 12927. With sparing use since, the vehicle was home-serviced until June 2017 when it was given to Lotus specialists Back on Track for a major refresh and, again, by Lotus specialists Lakeside Engineering in April 2019. Work carried out at these two major services included…


New exhaust lambda sensor

Uprated gear linkage kit

Nitron Street Series dampers all round

New track rod ends

New steering rack

New cambelt

New alternator belt

New clutch slave cylinder

Full geometry reset


I have just driven the vehicle 150 miles and I can confirm that the new suspension, steering and gear linkage kit have transformed this vehicle in to a very sweet little car with none of the usual rattles, squeaks and creaks that you would usually associate with an Elise S1. I will ensure that the vehicle is again serviced prior to being sold. The MOT certificate (no advisories) is valid until August 2021.


The paintwork is in a great overall condition and the leather is not unduly scuffed or discoloured. The Elise-embroidered floor mats complement the seat colour perfectly and the Cobra alarm system and Alpine radio/CD are in good fettle.


Accompanying the vehicle is, of course, the complete owners’ pack, the Cobra alarm Installation Certificate, some service receipts and two sets of keys (one alarm remote). I have undertaken an HPI check, showing no adverse information, and a copy is on file for the benefit of the next owner.


In conclusion, a great little car in a fabulous mechanical condition.




For further details and to arrange a COVID-secure viewing, please call 07718 385168 at any time. Evenings and weekends always a pleasure.


Many thanks for looking!
