Offered up for sale here is yet another beautiful used Lotus that Castle are delighted to bring to the market! Quite arguably the ‘best of the breed’ when it comes to the S2 Elise, the 111R. Praised by many as having the perfect combination of power and weight the 111R is the fastest naturally aspirated Elise produced. The dual overhead camshaft 1.8 litre engine produces 189 BHP at 7800RPM which is plenty of power considering the curb weight of the 111R is just 860KG. The six speed Toyota gearbox fitted to the 111R and its revised ratios provides a slick and smooth gear change, a noticeable improvement over the earlier K-series cars.
This particular 111R is a fabulous example, with just one keeper from new who ordered and optioned the car from the factory. This Elise is finished in rare Polar Blue metallic paintwork with an equally rare blue alcantara and carbon effect interior which ties the whole car together beautifully. The finishing touch to this 111R is a blue soft top roof rather than the standard black seen on most. This Elise has just 41,000 miles on the clock and is presented in very good condition indeed after spending its entire life garaged and only seeing the road on dry warm days. This 111R is also fitted with the desirable Touring pack which includes uprated radio head-unit, sound insulation, electric windows and full carpets.
This Elise has been looked after very well throughout its life which the current condition reflects. With full-service history and no mileage gaps in the cars maintenance this cars one and only owner never missed a service. All of the invoices for service and maintenance work completed have been kept along with previous MOT certificates to further support the cars low mileage.
The regular maintenance ensures that this Elise drives just as good as it looks! The 2ZZ engine revs smoothly and the six speed C64 close ratio gearbox provides a smooth and slick gear change. This is a very well looked after car both mechanically and cosmetically. If you are looking for a useable sports car don’t miss out on this unique chance to own this one owner Elise finished in a rare colour combination. The car has been fully checked over by our Lotus trained technicians and serviced. The car will be supplied with a warranty and is available for viewings and test drives immediately.
