Stunning Aubergine Lotus Elise 111R
2005 111R (Aubergine)
Only 11 ever made in the UK (Vehicle of provenance to prove)
2Bular 6'' Twin Exit Exhaust
Black Alloy Wheels
Black Fuel Filler Surround (Original Available)
ECU Remap 5600rpm Cam change
I've now owned it for over 3 years and had built some fantastic memories both on my own and on trips out with my Wife in it. The car has never let me down and been very reliable. I've been a member of NYLOC/MLOC for a while now and had some amazing trips with both clubs. The car itself has been to many car shows and clearly well recognized among the community.
Highlight for me (As shown in picture) is being taken to my wedding in convoy with a few friends from the Lotus community.
Condition of the car is excellent given that it's now a 13 year old car. Most people who see it would suggest a lot newer based on visual condition. Age related marks can be found however very few and consummate with being a low down sports car. I've tried to keep the car as original as possible with the below exceptions:
2Bular 6'' Twin exit exhaust (Sounds just right)
TRD Air filter
Black Alloy Wheels (Superb Condition)
5600rpm Lower Cam change (Makes the car a whole lot more drivable)
All ball joints recently changed and drop links
Brand new Clutch just fitted
I've always ran the car on super unleaded and given the car a good warm up before heading off anywhere. It has recently been given a full clean MOT with no advisories at all. The car has been serviced every year by dealer/lotus specialists however this year was the first time It's been serviced by me. This is a basic service with all nescessary oils changed with only the best stuff.
I've pampered the car throughout my ownership and take great pride treating it to a clean/polish using god knows how many products at no expense spared again.
Points to note: (The Negative)
Drivers window requires new top guide blocks (Already have new ones ready to fit)
Waist seals on windows have corrosion near the mirror (Very common)
Couple of small marks here and there (Very few given age of car and due to near full armourfend protection)
Driver air vent fin broken but replacement can be sourced for less than £20
That's about all I can think of negative wise.
As said originally, I am currently looking at options and this is dependant on genuine interest. This car is much loved and I imagine there to only be 4 or 5 currently left on the UK roads in this variant/colour.
u2u me for enquiries.
Car will be available to drive away from 8th August if right price/deal can be made. Test drives/viewings available upon request from 21st July to 3rd August depending on finding a slot/time to suit.
