unfortunately the time has come for me to sell my incredible Lotus Elise 2006
111R. The deal was, I could have it until the baby came along and with a six month old now in tow, I did well!! If it was a bed however I would be sleeping in it!!!
So, why a Lotus111R? I looked at everything when I was looking for a bit of weekend fun, and as you can expect ended up on the Elise. So much fun, so reasonable, so attainable and so reliable…..Supercar fun with Supermini bills, it was a no brainer & 30-40mpg!!!!
Then which model, my summation, and this is only my opinion:-
StandardElise…..Not quite enough get up and go
111S – Rover engine (reliability concerns…read the forums)
Superchargered – Unnecessary
Then there’s the 111R, the perfect blend of usable power (189bhp), twin cam surge at high revs, few nice creature comforts (essential Air Conditioning) the best ABS system ever, and the reliability of a Toyota Power House…..and what a engine (more later)
So decision made, now to find the perfect car. After trying numerous, I finally found this amazing example in SYTNER Specialist Cars. They and the car were brilliant. Exactly as described. So I bought it and I have now had my fun and the pram takes priority over the motor (wife will read this!) They think its all over........it is now...... :-)
The only modifications I have made are the wheels (now powder coated high gloss black) and I had a 2Bular exhaust fitted. The only thing the Elise missed was a growl, well now it has one. Forget boy racer drone, this is a purpose hand built masterpiece. The engine note is Supercar heaven, and when you hit the cam switchover point, oh my giddy Aunt, its just epic!!!
SO the car:
Canyon Red Metallic – THE colour of the moment (quite literally) gets commented on everywhere and is the new Mclaren P1 colour (See last image)
2Bular handmade stainless steel exhaust – I cannot explain, just try it – Have the standard exhaust too if you want it……
FullLotus Service History (Last service Gray Paul Lotus less than 3k miles ago)
Probax Black immaculate leather sports seats (Don’t buy one without these!)
Air Conditioning (Essential) Electric Windows…I know, how posh…..Central locking!!!
Glass shine waxed & polished paintwork (Truly beautiful – gets commented on everywhere I go)
Full Sytner transferable Warranty (This can be renewed in October if required £480 for a further years cover!!!)
Beautiful High Gloss Black powder coated alloys (newly done)
New rear brake pads (It’s all that needed doing when I had full check at Lotusafter buying car!)
Lowered RPM Switchover point - This is a necessary must - 6,200RPM is too high and means you have to rev car to death to get performance - with this enhancement it gives you the kick lower down and saves killing the engine. Perfection
Alpine CD Head unit & four speakers….don’t worry about this, you won’t use it!
Simply superb condition inside and out
On top of all of this you have a depreciation proof legend of a vehicle with a warranty. My opinion, is these have actually turned and are on the way up, buoyant by the new car costing 40k and the rarity of the R version.
**Sorry should have added: Rear tyres changed (Proper Yokohoma Advan AD07"s) and Schedule A Service carrie dout at Grey Paul Lotus on 10.02.15 when mileage 12,674. Currently 14,985
I can only finish by saying you won’t find better. It drives as a new car, the colour is sublime, the exhaust gives the growl and the epic driving experience ……do not miss this one.
Car is ten minutes from Bristol.
