We are pleased to offer for sale this stunning Lotus Elise Series 1 finished in the traditional British racing green with magnolia leather.
Launched in 1996 the Elise S1 was powered by a 1.8 litre K-series engine producing 118bhp. Whilst this may not sound like much today, the Elise offered excellent performance thanks to a kerbweight of just 731kg, but it was the way the car felt and handled that guaranteed this car as an instant success. With modern cars becoming heavier and more complex by the year, the Elise S1 has cemented itself as a unique driving and ownership experience and to many is still regarded as the definitive Lotus.
P516 FPM was supplied new on 20/05/1997 by Bell + Colvill Lotus, with the first owner keeping the car until 2015. It has covered just 1,633 miles from new and being an early MMC model features composite brake discs and an aluminium engine cover in the quest for the lowest possible kerb weight. It presents superbly in Racing Green Metallic with Magnolia hide and was optioned new with a Momo steering wheel, built in driving lights and Perspex headlamp covers. Present are the original handbooks, newspaper reviews and even the original bill of sale for £22,587.35!
