1999 LOTUS ELISE S1 – 33,000 MILES – SOLD

The original, class-defining Elise. Whilst later models were endowed with increased power, no variant epitomizes the lightweight open-top sports car quite like the Series 1 delivering a modest 118bhp in a featherweight 725kg package.

Having covered a mere 33,000 miles in its 20-year life, this beautiful Ruby red Elise has been used sparingly and lavished with care. Understood to have been garaged from new and with values continuing to climb, this vehicle presents a hugely appealing proposition.

Only 4 owners in total 3 of which the same enthusiastic family with a great history file and regular maintenance at Lotus specialists.
On the road the nimble nature of the chassis stands out and whilst every car manufacturer is constantly chasing power this design proves that great design and lightweight is what really makes for a super driving experience
