Elan M100 SE Turbo 1992

It is time to pass my lovely Lotus onto its next custodian. I'll wait a few days before I advertise it to a wider audience; it would be great if it went to another enthusiast.
A wonderful car to drive and one that starts on the button. She looks terrific and has no known faults mechanically or bodywork wise. She is stored undercover and in the dry. She does not leak (not that it ever goes out in the rain!), the hood seals have been updated or improved.
I have owned her for 6 years and enjoyed bringing her up to a high standard but really don’t get to use her enough. She is started regularly but I have too many cars to use her as much as she deserves.
Mechanically, all the important things have been done and she has never let me down. She has been serviced and MOTed (no advisories for the last two years). Any advisories in the past have been dealt with. In the last 6 years the following have been replaced:

• Cooling system – alloy radiator, silicon hoses and heater control valve.
• Suspension – Stainless steel rear wishbones, Nitron springs and shocks and 4 wheel alignment.
• Engine / Transmission – Short shift gear lever, all belts, fluids and plugs and leads, K&N filter and Cybox stainless steel exhaust (nice tone).
• Body – Tyres (less than 5000 miles) with refurbished alloys, Mk 2 hood with very good seals, chassis / suspension painted and waxolyed, new headlights and pop up headlight motors refurbished.
• Brakes – Hi Spec front brakes and Goodridge stainless hoses.
• Sound System – Kenwood head unit (DAB, iPod, Bluetooth etc) and Infinity speakers all-round.

This car wants for nothing. I did 3500 miles around France and Italy a while ago in a heatwave and she never missed a beat.
There is an almost complete service history and the Cobra alarm is working perfectly (includes central locking).
120000 miles but the engines runs brilliantly and the gearbox as slick as ever.
Based near Portsmouth. Now on eBay.

Looks like a minter, GLWS!
