Lotus Elise S1



Enquiry About The Lotus Elise S1

    The Lotus Elise Series 1 was a game-changer that not only set a new standard for how sports cars should drive, but also changed the company’s fortunes.

    What better way to sum up what the Elise S1 is than to quote from the original sales brochure?


    Revolutionary, the only way to describe the new Lotus Elise, a car which combines beautiful simplicity, high technology, high performance and high drama.

    The classically elegant lines of the roadster reflect the true spirit of Lotus and have captured the imagination of the world.

    The innovative bonded aluminium chassis achieves a remarkable combination of light weight and rigidity, giving exceptional handling and balance. It is the backbone of a car single-mindedly focused on delivering driving pleasure. The words of Europe’s motoring press speak for themselves:

    “It is the finest sports car in the world” – AUTOCAR

    “Perfection” – BBC TOP GEAR

    “It completely redefines what you expect from a sports car” – PERFORMANCE CAR

    “The Lotus Elise proves that less is more” – SPORT AUTO

    “A huge pleasure to drive” – LE MONITEUR AUTOMOBILE

    “Welcome to the 21st century sports car” – CAR MAGAZINE

    But the most fantastic thing is the world’s motoring press is just as in love with the Lotus Elise today as they were 30 years ago!

    This pristine example has recently been repainted in Racing Green, including the original factory hardtop. The original wheels are painted in gloss black and are devoid of marks or scratches. Behind them sit a set of steel brakes from later-generation Elise S1s. The original MMC brakes will accompany the sale.

    On the inside, the seats have been reworked in premium leather. The entire interior has been professionally detailed, and the aluminium chassis looks like the day it left the factory gates.
