Very original low mileage car in excellent overall condition that genuinely drives like a new S1.
Azure blue paintwork in great condition with very few stone chips due to low mileage, cream leather interior. Only 16,400 miles from new. Registered in February 1999.
Extremely well cared for and maintained. In addition to being kept in a garage the underbody and suspension components have been wax oil treated to prevent corrosion.
The car was stored in a private collection between 2003-2015, hence it’s great condition, unfortunately due to the owners ill health it was sold by the family to a lotus specialist. At that time the family were unable to provide the service history file, however from the online MOT history the mileage can be validated.
15th Sept 2015 15933 miles
22nd Sept 2016 15995 miles
20th Sept 2017 16033 miles
I have the last two MOT documents and its last tax disks from 2003 when the car went into storage. With some help from Lotus it has been possible to obtain some of the cars service history, this is now included in a new service book.
2000 Bell & Colvil 4112 miles
2016 Esprit Cars 15995 miles
There is also a written statement from the previous owner that it had received a cambelt change with it’s prior service although no receipt is available.
If you are looking for an excellent example of a low mileage Elise in great condition to enjoy owning at a sensible price then this is a perfect car. It is not a car with a fastidiously documented history hence that is reflected in the price. MOT until September 2018. The soft top is as new condition as it has hardly been used. Two sets of keys.
