my 1976 lotus elite. br>black. jps liveried. nbsp;
actually a replica of the 1976 season team lotus drivers cars. yes. they all had a black jps elite as a company car apparently.
all good. starts on the button. sounds awesome. proper growler. br>brand new stainless exhaust system. newish tyres. everything works including the headlights. they raise themselves when the engine is shut down. vacuum leak which is an easy fix. will do if i get time.
~well. all i can say is that i have tried to upset this old lotus but cannot seem to make it let go. amazing road holding. br>a lower drag coefficient than a mclaren F1 even 40 odd years on. !!!!
the last lotus actively designed by the chapmanmeister. rare rare rare!!!
the interior is all there. i have a complete spare dashboard. front and rear end and boxes of bits to go with the car.
this lotus is getting a wheel refurb next week and the wheels will revert to eye squinting bright gold!
when driving round bristol i have twice been violated by women trying to drape themselves over the car!
people cheer as you drive past. really . i kid you not.
2 litre lotus twin cam. nbsp;
ultimate cool britannia and will part ex if you can come up with anything interesting. just testing the water and not fussed if it does not sell.  
could do with some tidying here n there but really like it's originality and cannot be arsed. so much fun to smoke it about the place as is.  
best call on 07741 275425 if you are interested. cannot be bothered to answer endless messages
cheers
