HPI clear, no accident history.
A Piper stainless steel sports exhaust was fitted in 2009, and gives a lovely, deep, purposeful burble on tickover, and is not droney on motorway cruises.
Starting, driving and stopping like a Lotus should, there are no engine issues, smoke or rattles, good power, and the chirps from the waste-gate are hilarious - think giggling squirrels on helium!
All 4 tyres have good tread, the the MoT has advisories for the outer edges of the 2 fronts. 2 sets of keys. Large history file. The hood is in good condition, with no rips, or tears.
There is some weather seal deterioration in the corner above the passenger side of the windscreen, and the drivers door has an issue opening fully. This doesn't prevent entry. There is evidence of welding on the lower hinge, and the door drops on opening. I will investigate, but please take this into consideration. Central locking works fine.
This car would make a great positive purchase during strange times. Forget about foreign travel for this year, and probably next. Invest in a fun, appreciating asset instead, as a hobby car for weekend adventures to The Lakes etc...
Thanks for looking. The car is located in South Manchester. Call to discuss the car any time - Bobby
