2000 Lotus Elise Type 49

A cherished, two owner limited edition type 49 with just 35,000 miles.


Just 100 of these Lotus F1 tribute cars were ever made, with only a handful left in this condition. A one owner car up until June last year with a huge history file including 15 Lotus and specialist stamps in the Lotus Maintenance Records books, the last in April 2018 at 34,200 miles. In February 2015 the car had a new head gasket and cambelt at a Lotus specialist in West Sussex. The car has had an oil and filter change every year regardless of mileage. The car has a current MOT until 17 May 2019 and we have a file of 13 previous certificates.


Spec includes: optional extras from the factory of a factory hardtop in red, detachable steering wheel, fitted Elise cover, red car mats and radio fitting kit (no radio fitted). The car has had some sympathetic modifications including a Lotus 135 cylinder head conversion (ported by Janspeed), Exige close ratio gearbox, 111S inlet manifold, ATG high flow air filter, Elise stainless steel exhaust, Bilstein dampers, stainless brake hoses, Exige drilled/vented brake discs and Pagid Blue brake pads.


The engine is smooth, oil is golden and the car drives without fault. Tyres are all Toyo Proxes in excellent condition and with plenty of tread. The gearbox shifts smoothly with no knocks. The brakes pull the car up strong and straight.


In fantastic condition throughout, with no dings, dents or scratches, the alloys are perfect, unmarked, the interior is mint with no rips, tears or marks on the seats. We have the original book pack and a large file of invoices. It is HPi clear and we have the certificate in hand and we have two working keys and alarm fobs.
