1990 Lotus Elan Turbo SE Convertible
Calypso Red - Full S/S Exhaust System
48,000 Miles

The M100 Elan Turbo SE
Front wheel drive turbo power delivered via a robust Isuzu powerplant and a slick 5
speed manual gearbox. The 160 bhp headline figure in reality offers more power and thrills
than you first imagine as the car weighs less than 1000kg. The results of this high power
to weight ratio and clever chassis design are super fast cross country ability and possibly
the best front wheel driving experience I have ever had, its so precise and balanced that
finding the limit is well beyond most drivers skill set. The Turbo is the only one to have
offering rather a lot of mid range shove that does not die out like may small turbo cars
and actually keeps going all the way up the rev range, an intoxicating drive.

Chassis no SCC100ZT1LHD16151
Engine no 856429
Dor 02 05 1990 by Willaims Lotus

Condition 81 High Res Images
Very bright and clean paintwork with original Lotus alloys on matching Pirelli tyres. The
whole car is factory original and all the better for it. In good working order with respect
to all electrics, switchgear, and the numerous gauges around the dashboard. Its 100 % HPi
clear with a clean underside and never been involved in any bumps or had any welding.

Recent Maintainence
Last year £2752 was spent attending to numerous areas to ensure that the car performs
correctly and this work has set it up for many years to come. This included;

- Cambelt kit
- Water pump
- Alternator
- Battery
- Gearbox fluid change
- New gearbox gasket
- Alternator belt
- Power steering belt
- 2 New front brake calipers
- New front brake discs
- Performance Mintex brake pads
- 2 new brake hoses
- New brake pipes
- New vacumn pipe
- New coolant resorvoir cap
- Brake fluid change

These cars with decent low mileages are great investments wth values climbing month on
month. They offer a real performance drop top experience and a touch of excotica that you
will never feel in a similar BMW or Mazda. This coupled with relatively low production
numbers should ensure this to be a clever investment if properly stored and valeted,
for the money nothing else will really touch it. The stainless steel exhaust system is
a quality item that brings the quiet engine to life. This along with an uprated induction
system pish the power up to around 180 bhp at least, a much faster car than other models
I have driven. All part exchanges welcome, delivery anywhere in the UK.
