A past owner has really loved this car, there is much more work done than documented it looks to of had a mini restoration.
The foot wells, rear subframe, rear drive shafts have all been treated in POR15, all the engine mounts have been replaced and freshly painted. The front toe hook has been replaced probably while the radiator and fan were done… the list goes on.
Drives fantastically, nice and tight and pulls effortlessly.
Sounds awesome with a very purposeful idle, Sport 160ish.
Private ‘LOT’ plate included in sale.
Interior very clean, hood excellent a few stone chips and the odd age related mark but overall a really clean rare Elise.
Two pricing options with this car:
£14,999 with the Sport 160 Victory anthracite wheels.
£13,999 with the standard wheels refurbished (if you hurry you can choose the colour otherwise factory silver as per the photos).
