The one and only Bling Mobile up for sale.

Postby delta » Sat 11.03.2017, 23:23

After spending the last 12 years in Denmark, the Bling Mobile is now up for sale. This is the famous Florida car that Gerome in UK spend a fortune on, under the name Game-on.
7k Pounds was spend on the engine itself, and the hole renovation was documented on LEC years back. Unfortunally the tread seems the have been lost over time, but i'm sure old members still remember the days, with the almost daily updates on this fantastic project, that ended with a gold plated engine, in a white lh-drive car from sunny Florida in rainy UK.

I have had the car for 12 years, and have made what he missed, being mostly interior and all electric.

I saw this Car many years ago in Steve Williams old garage in Taplow.

The engine looked amazing... The rest of the car... not so much...

would you have any current photos...

I believe the original thread was intentionally moved.

Can't remember how to do it, as all pic's are laying on my hard drive. but I'll give it a go.
Latest pic's is about 6-8 years old, but it haven't changed much since then.

NB. No, they are all to big to be op loaded. Don't know how to overcome that.
I have about 100 pic's from Gerome of the hole project as it was on its way, and 15-20 pic's from my time as owner.
Do you have any idea to where the original tread went. Is there a safety copy somewhere among the moderators.?.

If you want to have a description on what was done to the engine, go to my homepage, logo found under my avatar, find white m100, where there is a list from 2005 in English.

This is from his web page: (He asked me to post the pictures and list for him)

This project car is almost completed and needs a loving home!!!

1991 Lotus Elan SE Turbo. Left hand drive.

This is the “World Famous” Game-on “Bling-Mobile”: a one-off special, where a fortune has been spend on the engine. This car is well known in the Elan M100 worldwide community, found on.www.lotuselancentral.com

Previous owner has spend a fortune on the following upgrades:

- Flow-ported head. Valves re-cut to head
- New camshafts.
- Block rebored, with new pistons, blueprinted.
- Crankshaft polished.
- New bearings all over.
- HiSpec racing clutch, on Fidenza Aluminium-flywheel.
- Engine all balanced out.
- Limited slip differential.
- Upgraded turbo.
- Adjustable waste gate actuator.
- High performance injectors.
- Blow-off valve.
- KN filter.
- 2.25”stainless steel exhaust.
- Upgraded front brake rotors, with green-stuff pads.

On top of this, a fortune has been spend on Gold plating parts of the engine.

This engine is build to handle power spikes over 300HK, and to be able to run with 250HK forever. To do so it will need a Haltech ECU, as the standard ECU can’t handle turbo boost higher than 0.95 bar. These are available installed and mapped for 1.100 Euro.

As it is now, the original ECU is chip-tuned with the Everest ESM chip, increasing boost from standard 0,65 bar (167Hk.) to 0,90 bar (197 HK.)

All this done less than 3.000 km ago.

This car is road ready, and will be given a new MOT certificate before handing over to a new owner.

However the car itself could do with some loving care, as the interior is in not too good shape, there are a few electrical failures, and the paintwork is not brilliant.

Performance as they are now.:
0–100km. Less than 7 sec..
Top speed over 230 km/h.

Jorgen (Delta) is still working on figuring a fair price for the car.

He is going to take it out of storage and give it a serious clean and inspection while looking at the current prices and then will decide the value.

He paid a very high price when he bought it due to the gold plating so is hoping to recover as much as possible. I am sure he will send me more pictures to post in good time and then he will post his expected price.

Remember, it is a LHD, USA/FED car.

NO.!.
It seems to be some kind of electro transfer that you can do to aluminium, also seen in many other bright colors, but it's for sure not real Gold.!.
Any way, The real gold in this car is not what you see, but what is was done to this engine. Take a look at the list and try to imagine what it can do on a well mapped Haltech ECU, which is not installed but will be included. Yes, I will be back in due time with a price when the car is cleaned, polished and in running condition, after spending years in storage . In the meantime I can invite you all to give me a offer on PM if you have any interest in buying the car. Please remember the very low exchange rate of the pounds these day's, which are down 40% or more from previous high's.

The One and Only - Delta (Jorgen)
:( I inform you with sorrow in my heart that Jorgen passed away in November.
Jorgen's first M100 came in boxes so he knew every bit of the car. Great help from among others John C. and John W. Jorgen enjoyed the exchange with everyone on lotuselancentral.com.
Jorgen made many improvements on the Bling Mobile. I had the pleasure of driving the car in Summer 2017. That car is extremely fast! 2 days later .... too much oil everywhere.
"If it cannot last, we did not repair it properly", as Jorgen always said.
The one and only Bling Mobile is looking for a new good home in the long term.
All honour to Jorgen's memory.

farmer,
I’m sad to hear that Delta has gone. Thanks for letting us know. Please pass LEC’s condolences to his family. He was a true enthusiast and a very capable Lotus mechanic.
