Lotus Excel SE 1987 for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car (2.5) based on 133 votes

Hello. I am selling my beloved Lotus Excel SE 2+2.   Hand build by Lotus in England. It has a powerful 2. 2 litre engine with 180 bhp. The car is sharp in her response and impressive in features. She has always been garaged since I brought the Lotus from the UK. 15 inch new OZ/alloy wheels with tires covering about 2000kms since new. Window wiper motor rebuilt a few weeks ago and new rear seat belt chassis anchors fitted. The Excel stands wide on the road with wonderful 50/50 balance. Build to last in strong fibreglass to reduce weight and add strength. She has a fully galvanised chassis that was inspired on the Lotus Formula 1 Chapman designed chassis of Grand Prix fame. No rust. The Excel is a superb drive especially on twisting roads.   I'm 6. 4 in height and I fit just fine with a comfortable driving position. Smooth 5 speed gear box. The pictures of the engine bay she that the Excel is a clean and a cared for car. Reliable and cheap to run. The car was originally red with a tan leather interior. Previous owner had her resprayed in Aston Martin Gunmetal grey and the leather recoloured in black. Regularly washed and cleaned and always garaged in Sydney. I brought this car over from the UK and since being here I have kept her in good and fine condition as you can see. Details to improve - wing mirror casings cracked under paint. I have only ever seen two in Sydney. so a rare car to spot. Rego and road tax paid until May/June 2015. I have all import paper work and current bills. Located in Paddington. Sydney. You are more than welcome to come over and view the car prior to sale. Please ask any questions. A car that will only appreciate as it gets older and more loved. Reasonable offers considered. Alex 0415201395 Kind regards Alex p. s If james Bond had a family. then this is the car he would drive.
