    Just how they should have been when they left the factory 😊

    Lotus 2-11 Launch Edition 2008

    Time Left: 2 months and 15 days

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I have owned this car for just over 15 months but it is now time to let it go. This is car number 61 out of the 100 launch editions. 260ps factory upgrade (with receipt). Exhaust upgrade. Front PPF. Ohlins shocks. Snap off Momo steering wheel. Digital tyre pressure and temperature monitor by Tyresure. AO48's with good tread and excellent condition forged alloys. Just been to Unit 4 Lotus in Burton for an oil change and MOT plus general check over with zero issues. I had it fully checked over after purchase at Unit 4, where the Supercharger nose cone was replaced and clutch restrictor valve replaced. I'm sure Gav would confirm the car's condition if you give him a call. Sadly I have never taken the car on track, with a young family I have zero time. It has full history with Hofmann's up to 2012 and then was part of a large collection of cars (interesting story) and didn't really turn a wheel hence the lack of MOT history until I purchased it in January 2018. It was fully serviced which included a new PC680 Odyssey battery by Grant Motorsport in Bristol. 3rd gear synchro was fully sorted by Hoffman's in 2010 with receipt. Full Engine re-build by Hoffman's in 2010 with receipt. (Heat soak.) The bodywork is excellent, only areas of note are around the rear spoiler uprights which has a very small hairline crack in the clam. This is a known issue and the majority of 2-11's have this problem. The rear clam bolts to the spoiler uprights, vibrations and body flex cause the cracks. I have tried to get this sorted but the cracks re-appeared :(. I have placed some body coloured vinyl strips over these areas. There is also a few star cracks on the front wings, as these cars came from the factory with no wheel arch protection to the front. I have had some dynamat stuck in there, so no further problems. To be honest they are hardly noticeable. The number plate is part of the deal if the right price is agreed. I might take a swap for something interesting but it would have to be good and please be realistic about what your car is worth!! (I am not a trader!) If you need any further information please drop me a U2U. Please no time wasters.

    You’ll be back in a Lotus, we all come back at some point. Good to hear you’re still supporting Gav, great bloke! We need to support people like him.

    S2 Exige vs Elise 111S

    Good post Richard, says about all. I’ve had a 111S, N/A Exige and a supercharged Exige and if I’m honest I thought the N/A Exige was perfect for the road. I even preferred it to the S which was a 260. It was just more useable. 111S was a great car too but I wanted the looks of the Exige. I had the soft top conversion so you still get the best of both worlds. Out of all the Lotus I’ve owned i still think the S2 Exige’s are the best. Just great cars.

    Steering wheel favour....

    Think this is 300mm, measured just over edge to edge. Let me know if it’s the right one and I’ll send it to Gav. Cheers Drage

    Might be able to help you out. Can’t remember what sizes mine are though! I’ll have a measure tomorrow if I get chance and I’ll post a pic. I could post it to Gav.

    Windscreen washer not working

    If it’s under warranty just take it back, how would they ever know about the dilution? Just play dumb and let them sort it 👍🏻
