An exceptionally quick vehicle. Personally imported by myself from the UK in 1997. Second Owner. Engine rebuilt and gas flowed at 55 000 miles by Lotus Race Shop PNM Engineering in the UK as I wanted a perfect engine and it was far cheaper to do in the UK by experienced technicians. PNM can be found online. Has travelled 8000 miles since rebuild. Over $16000 worth of receipts. Has new SE wheels, suspension and tyres. Removable sunroof. Has some paint blemishes from a cover rubbing on the duco, mainly on the bonnet and engine cover as per photos, hence the reduction in price. This vehicle was $200 000 new in Australia, and will do 0 to 100 in around 4.9 seconds. Log books, receipts etc available .Selling as I have two children and the lotus has no back seats ! Please not odometer reading is miles not kilometres.

whats a quick detail and polish cost? surely the $200 or whatever would get rid of the 'small blemishes' and would command a higher price for the car... :doh:

It does look a little high.  Might be just the lighting though.

Mines still stock and kinda looks high-ish as well.

For same money you can get Aust del cars with less kms.

It does say that he's got new suspension, so that explains why it sits so high.
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.
