Lotus Elan 1.6 SE Turbo

Calypso Red



For sale we have a lovely Lotus Elan 1.6 SE Turbo which we have owned ourselves since 2009. The car is finished in the lovely Calypso bright red and has the full Grey leather with red stripe seats and had the option of the bright red carpets. The car was first registered on 8 April 1991and was sold by the Lotus dealer at the time ‘Christow Carriage Company’ based in Exeter. The car has had seven owners in total. It was unfortunate that in 2002 the car was involved in an accident and resulted in being a Cat D insurance loss as the previous owner decided not to repair. We have no record of what was damaged but have found a previous repair on the passenger side rear which has been carried out to a high standard. The orginial owners handbook was unfortunately lost by a previous owner but we have service records from 2005 at 34,000miles and we have looked after it ever since. The car has now only just gone over 55,000miles. The car has had many upgrades and has also benefited from having a full suspension refresh and rebuild with all new bushes and ball joints, blasted and painted suspension arms, new uprated GAZ fully adjustable dampers with new springs. We have also upgraded the front brakes to HI SPEC calipers with larger 283mm grooved brake disc’s. We have fitted a new aluminium Radiator with new Kenlow electric fans and now running EVANS waterless coolant. Uprated Sports exhaust and ITG performance air filter, Baily’s Alloy header tank, Baily’s Turbo dump valve. Remoted central locking with alarm, Electric windows, electric mirrors, 16 Inch Fedreal Alloy wheels with Toyo Tyres. We have fitted a new Stereo/CD player with built in bluetooth phone and music kit. The car has just had a major service with all fluids changed with the cambelt being replaced last year.

We have a large history file of all the work carried out on this car. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us as we will be more than happy to help.
