£14,9952002 Lotus Elise S2



1.8 Rover engine with 5 speed gearbox, Stacks of history including 22 service stamps, regularly serviced and only 5 owners in total. 2 keys and comes with a colour matched hard top.

This Elise is a great buy and very attractively priced as the paintwork is tatty on the passenger side - the passenger door and front clam are the worst areas. Some of the photos provide more detail.

If required, we can attend to the paintwork at extra cost or advise a prospective owner on what would need to be done by a paintshop of their choice.

This is a great opportunity for someone with a limited budget to acquire a well maintained and mechanically sound Elise and then over time, turn it into a really nice example.

More Details...

The Elise was rightly described as the world's most advanced sports car when it made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1995. Famously named after a grand-daughter of Romano Artioli, the then chairman of Lotus, it was built on a futuristic epoxy-bonded extruded aluminium chassis.

Designed and developed in-house at Lotus, it was a genuine innovation that rewrote the rule book on lightweight automotive engineering.

Power for the Elise came from Rover’s 1.8-litre 118bhp K-Series engine, transversely mounted behind the two seats. Given the car’s exceptionally light weight, it meant a swift 0-60mph time of 5.5 seconds.

The reviews were stellar; this was a new generation of light, agile and pure performance car that thrilled the enthusiastic driver. It racked up numerous trophies, including several ‘Car of the Year’ honours, and was even shortlisted for the Prince of Wales Award for Innovation.

Revised in 2001 with sharper looks, improved hood and revised suspension, the s2 built on the s1's legendary foundations.

One of the all time great affordable sports cars, but don't take our word for it, come and view and test drive this Elise and judge for yourself!
