Hilton and Moss are delighted to bring another very well sorted Lotus Elise to the market. This particular car left the Hethel factory in 2011 and has had just three former keepers. The car was with its second very careful enthusiast keeper from 2014 until 2021 before the team at Hilton & Moss handled the sale of the car to its third and last keeper. We are now delighted to have the car back for sale once again.
Finished in Chrome Orange with satin black cast multi-spoke wheels this Elise looks incredible from all angles. During the cars life it had picked up various age-related defects, the cars very loving second owner decided to have the entire car resprayed professionally in January 2018. The work was completed to a very high standard and the car presents in immaculate condition. The work cost in excess of £5,800 with a full wheel refurb carried out at this time well. A variety of trims and seals were replaced at this time to ensure the car wasn’t let down by any of the smaller items. The full front clam and full sills left and right had paint protection film applied to ensure the paint remained in pristine condition.
This car is fitted with a variety of optional extras including leather seats, full carpets and floor mats, cruise control, and stereo and speakers. Throughout the cars life a variety of interior trims including the sill covers have been changed to ensure the interior looks just as good as the bodywork!
This particular Elise has an immaculate service history spreading across two service booklets with a total of 14 service stamps present in the cars history file all by Lotus approved franchises or specialists. A detailed history file has been kept on the car with copies of all service invoices and maintenance carried out. In 2017 the Bilstein shock absorbers were fully overhauled and a Pro Alloy radiator was fitted. Most recently the team at H&M have fully overhauled the air-conditioning system, fitted an upgraded alpine head unit and speakers along with new Yokohama tyres all round. The car was most recently serviced by us in August 2022 and the car has covered minimal mileage since.
Throughout the previous keepers ownership a variety of performance upgrades were tastefully added to the car to improve drivability and enjoyment. A TRD air-box was added in April 2014 which provides a subtle increase in power and a fantastic induction noise. A 2bular exhaust system was also fitted releasing the combustion gasses and providing a fantastic but not overloud noise. The car pops and crackles and sounds great but not provocative. A set of GRP 3 LED taillights were also fitted to the car which can be removed if not to a customer particular taste.
The car drives perfectly and has been fully inspected by our in-house technicians.
This Elise offers tremendous value for money, if you are looking for a very well sorted British sports car that needs for nothing look no further. The car will be supplied with a 12-month warranty.
