2002 Lotus Elise S2 : Early lightweight model
Rover 120bhp engine with close ratio gearbox
Rare non-metallic solid black paintwork
Good points:
Hpi checked and clear with certificate
Mechanically in very good condition and drives really well, without any issues
This Elise has been used as a daily driver by the current owner and covered 30,000m in his ownership
Nitron Street Series suspension
MoT August 2017 with no issues reported
2 keys and alarm code card
Large file of receipts for work carried out including most recently:-
New ignition coil packs September 2016
New Yokohama AD07 tyres September 2016
Full service and check over April 2016
4 x new brake discs and pads April 2016
New spark plugs, fuel filter and air filter September 2015
Exhaust manifold replaced 2014
No modifications and has been used as a road car
Now the bad points:
The bodywork is VERY poor, simply one of the worst I have seen!
Sadly it suffers from the common Elise issue of paintwork blistering/lifting.
This has effected most panels, the worst being the doors, but it is everywhere!
I would budget for a full re-spray, if you wanted the paintwork to be perfect.
The headlight covers require re-laquering as they have faded, very common issue
The soft top roof and interior seats would benefit from cleaning
These are all cosmetic issues only
I would suggest that if you need more photos to decide, then this is probably not the Elise for you!
Ideally suited to a DIY car restorer, it can be used 'as is' as it drives well, with no known faults
CoC available direct from Lotus for export if required (GBP 100)
