LOTUS ELISE S1 - 8900 MILES, YES, 8900 MILES! for sale
There is an old saying that a car can only be original once and this example certainly embodies that sentiment.
With the benefit of just one owner until last year. the vehicle was acquired by a long standing Lotus enthusiast who has maintained and. indeed. improved the already near-perfect and original condition through a systematic programme of cleaning and polishing. These include a thorough rejuvenation of all leather components. resulting in an “as new” condition on the seats and steering wheel. a careful detailing of the front and rear compartments. along with the removal and cleaning of the wheels and brake components. The result is a genuine concours contender and a perfectly original Elise S1 “reference” car with nothing added and nothing taken away.
A late built S1. first registered in Norfolk in April 2000. Serviced by the local main dealer. Stratton Motor Company. at regular mileage intervals (849. 5058. 6834. 7675. 8704 miles) until. sadly. having to be sold due to ill health last year. When new. all available options were specified. including leather seats. driving lamps. radio fitting kit and a Category One alarm/immobiliser system. The TST paint protection that was applied when the car was new has done an outstanding job in keeping the colour bright and the lustre deep. The later wheel design and hood fixings are nice late-S1 features. The vehicle is currently undergoing a cherished number transfer. The grille mounted front characters will be replaced with a conventional number plate when the process is complete.
Due to a change in motoring direction. through the acquisition of another Lotus project. the vehicle is unexpectedly for sale again. The number of seriously good quality S1's is diminishing with the passing of time and this vehicle provides a rare opportunity to acquire one of the best examples. with longer term investment potential assured.
