Just in we have this super rare and sought after S2 Elise 135r!
Overall superb car its been used with just shy of 70k on the clock but the service history is very comprehensive. A "C" service (cambelt) has been completed just in June this year and the car comes with a folder full of invoices and a detailed spreadsheet containing all the maintenance details for the car. Head gasket has been replaced and also Lotus replaced the Cylinder head early in the cars life the porous heads been a known issue for the 135.
The car is in generally very good order throughout. There are a couple of stone chips and currently a small area of damaged clam behind the number plate (animal strike!) the car is at the moment priced to take this into account. In time it will be repaired and price adjusted but the chance here of a very very well priced 135r one of the most desirable S2 models.
In addition to the factory standard 135R spec (OZ wheels reworked cylinder head/manifold/ECU etc) this car also has Nitron adjustable suspension but is otherwise stock.
Drives absolutely brilliantly on the very rare occasion we get these cars its always a firm favourite here if you are a fan of the lighter early K series cars this is right at the top in driveability and desirability terms.
