The last one of these iconic Lotus SEs we had sold in a flash. and this one will surely be no different.

Belonging to a good customer of ours. this one is a real eye catcher. and has the pedigree to go with the looks.

The car is finished in Calypso Red. with a full grey leather interior. complete with red accents. The car has recently had a full. factory spec. re trim. so the leather is absolutely pristine. While this was being done. the
car was treated to a brand new hood. and the factory alloys (5) were all refurbished and fitted with new matching tyres. The commomly worn out A post rubber seals were also replaced.

The mechanical aspects of the car did not escape attention. and it received new brake calipers. engine service with timing belt. dump valve. full stainless steel exhaust system. etc. etc. Underneath the car. the chassis and wishbones are spot on. and even the factory decal "No jacking point" is still on the chassis.  

The end result is a cracking Lotus Elan. and with only 67k miles recorded from new. (old MOTs available to support mileage) is surely destined to become a classic. The car will come with an oil service and new MOT.

If you've not driven one of these cars. they're an absolute gem. Compared to the typical classic sports car from the seventies or eighties. they're a revelation. Power steering. sharp brakes. a turbocharged. bulletproof 162 bhp engine. and pure Lotus handling  make for an exciting yet totally reliable experience that is at home in the modern world.

 Test drives and inspections are welcome and encouraged. and your classic car or motorcycle is welcome in PART EXCHANGE.

Please ring prior to travelling. as we'd hate to disappoint at www. randsclassics. co. uk
