Elan Turbo SE M100
A beautiful 1990 Lotus Elan Turbo SE ( M100 ) that has covered just 29,859 miles since new with a comprehensive and documented service history file.
Finished in Calypso Red with full Grey/Red leather interior.
This little Lotus Elan Turbo SE presents in a lovely condition throughout and its condition is consistent with a low mileage, garaged and well maintained example. The Calypso Red paintwork is still vivid and consistent across all of its factory fitted body panels. It is free from any scratches and scuffs and it is free from any colour fade. The panel gap is exactly as should be. All glass is excellent and scratch free and the hood is excellent. The rear window is still nice and clear and has not cracked or clouded an any way. The galvanized chassis is free from damage and all suspension components and running gear is nice and clean.
Internally, again is excellent. The Grey/Red full leather sports seats still retain their shape and bolsters are free from damage or sagging. The carpet is nice and clean and has been protected by tailor fitted carpet mats. All switch gear and dials are nice and bright and in perfect working order. An upgraded bluetooth stereo system has recently been fitted, however the original factory fit Blaupunkt radio cassette is still present to maintain complete originality should the new owner wish. Door cards are again all good and undamaged.
The engine bay is nice and clean and has never been steam cleaned or tarted up...it just remains in a nice and clean original state.
The alloy wheels remain in a un-refurbished condition and they do present very nicely. They are all shod with matching Falken tyres.
The car starts, runs and drives lovely and it performs very well. It has always been maintained throughout its life and this is backed up with a very comprehensive service history file which contains all of the invoices for maintenance from day one and right up to date. The timing belt was replaced in 2017. If ever it has needed anything doing...it has been done and the receipts confirm this. All historic mot certificates are contained within the history file, along with the original sales brochure, a compilation of road tests and press reports, original owners handbook pack including the stamped service book, two original keys and current V5 registration document.This is a lovely, low mileage and genuine example of this fantastic little sports car that is backed up and complimented by a comprehensive history file and documents. Excellent examples of these are tipped to increase in price quite quickly and drastically over the next year or two...
