Select First Classics. /span> are pleased to offer the following Lotus Excel 2. 2SE manual sports car for sale. this car drives superb. bringing a huge smile to your face each time the rev counter climbs!

The Lotus Excel SE is a 1987 registered car and is in remarkable condition. with one of the best service history files I have seen in a long while. The car has the Lotus 2. 2 SE DOHC 16v engine. with twin 45 Dellorto carburetors. which produced 180 BHP. still a quick car in today's standards. With its Fibreglass ageless body style. in superb bright Calypso red. this car gets admiring glances wherever it goes.

The car is front engine. rear wheel drive. through a 5 speed gearbox. taken by Lotus from the bulletproof Toyota Supra. the car has superb handling and cornering speed. usually the driver runs out of talent. long before the car loses grip!  Built as a 2 plus 2. the car does has rear seats. with fitted seat belts front and rear. this SE is also equipped with wood dash veneer. ice warning. very comfortable half leather beige seats. with red velour cloth sections. alarm. immobilizer. and refurbished OZ 14” alloy wheels (including the spare) with excellent tyres.

The Lotus has a genuine mileage of less than 98. 00 miles an MOT to October 2013. and has done only a couple of hundred miles since (no advisories) it also has RFT to the end of September 2013.

Although many cars look good in digital photos. if anything I would say these pictures do not do the car justice. Although it is not a new car. the paintwork is bright red. not faded or flat or going pink. as is often the case with red cars. the wheels are as new. having been refurbished fully. The upholstery is excellent. with the exception of a bit of wear to the red panel insert on the driver's seat. The car has just been serviced. with new anti-roll bar bushes fitted (neoprene uprated). new clutch slave cylinder. and a new battery.

The car has all MOTs since 1994. at which point the owner signed a declaration that the mileage was a genuine 64. 00 miles. so the mileage can be tracked from new. The service history is very comprehensive. with not only stamps. but all receipts and includes. 2 cambelt changes. rear adjustable shock absorbers. stainless steel exhaust sections. amongst just some of the many listed items.

If you are following Classic car prices. you will know how quick 1980 cars are appreciating. this Lotus Excel is a superb introduction to classic car ownership. especially because of its easy to maintain mechanics. fibreglass bodywork. galvanized chassis. ready available parts. and fun factor when driving it.
