LOTUS ELISE 111S - Very Rare car that is in almost perfect condition. 2000/W - VIDEO NOW LOADED!!!! (2000)




‘Behind the wheel of a Lotus Elise 111S, on a sunny morning on a deserted, twisty road, you will approach motoring nirvana.’ – The Times.

I think that sums it up rather well….

This is now a very rare model and even more so in this sort of condition.

The S1 111S is considered by many as the best Series 1 model, blending the extra punch of the VVC 143bhp K-Series with ease of driving compared to the 160 Sport, which can be a little less forgiving at lower speeds.
This example has been kept in almost time-warp condition by the last owner who bought it with 13,600 miles on the clock in June 2007.  He was the 3rd owner, the chap prior to that having acquired the car in late August 2001 with around 7200 miles recorded.  (I think Atomic Kitten and So Solid Crew were battling it out for number 1 in the charts back then…..)  
The car was registered to the first owner (Chris Bodels from Liverpool) on 1st March 2000 by Kinsey Jones Ltd.   If Chris is still out there somewhere, I bet he can still remember how excited he would have been.

17yrs on and the first owner would find it hard to see any difference in the cars condition.  This service record is spot on and since 2007 it’s been cared for to a very high standard by Ollie Sadler of Phoenix Motorsport in Accrington.  Worth a Google…

The paintwork is largely original from what we can see apart from the N/S/R arch, which again shows how well loved this car has been.  The underside is better than when it left the factory, and the interior is as fresh and as good as when the car was new. (More details below).

The car come with:
A Lotus factory hardtop, which has only been on the car 3 times including when we drove it back.  The hardtop comes with its own purpose made protective bag.
Roll bar cover.
Brand new Lotus soft-top – Never used.
2 Keys plus Alarm Fobs and installation certificate.
Folder with Servicebook, Handbook etc.
Locking wheel nut.
Roof struts and bag.
Everything as when new.
