1991 Lotus Elan M100 with factory turbocharger - Calypso Red no mechanical issues, no leaks, no rust and well maintained. Car has fresh paint, new leather seats, a timing belt, water pump, cam seals, all aluminum radiator Upgrades: BCN shifter cables, Bob Brown short shifter, Piper precat eliminator, Bob Brown front brake conversion (Subaru rotors, Saturn calipers), Fiero low temp fan switch, Top End Performance blow off valve and intake piping, Kingsborne plug wires, Mercedes auxiliary water pump, full Samco silicone coolant hose kit, O2 sensor, braided turbo oil line and also an Everest chip. Uncomfortable stock seats were replaced with electric 944 seats that blend perfectly.

Fun and enjoyable cruiser... comfortable and dependable. Took it on 3 four trips in last month. Clean title. No rust. Complete extra set of wheels and tires, Car Cover, Notebook of what has been done to car, manuals, mag articles, literature, and many new and used spares parts . This Lotus is an affordable rare collector car you can drive and enjoy while it grows in value. $15800 price is firm but partial trades considered. Car located in Greenville, South Carolina area.

Definitely not the standard US wheel. It's not ugly and I'll bet the horn button works. More to the point, looks like it may not have an airbag. Is the SIR light permanently lit?

This is my old car.

The steering wheel is a Momo. Airbag light is not on. Don’t remember what I did. Probably took the bulb out.!!
