Having owned Lotus for 10 years, I finally bit the bullet and bought an S1 Exige in July 2016, my favourite Lotus of all time. I purchased from Snows Lotus, but I knew the previous owner who had part exchanged it for an Evora after 8 / 9 years of ownership.


I’ve spent approx £11,000 getting running and handling properly, it had sat in a garage for about 4 years with almost not driving.

Stacks of service history


2 sets of original matts, plus grey aftermarket matts.


Whilst most sane people would then keep it having done so much work to t and as it’s probably running better than it ever has, things change and I’m back into doing trackdays and sharing a track car with my Son. We have been using his old  Mk1 MX5 which I bought off him, as it didn’t feel right to thrash the Exige around track (I did do Brands Hatch in it). The MX5 has been great fun, but it’s sooooo sloooow on the straights that we have decided to get something with a little more power, so both the Exige and MX5 are going to be sold and replace with one car (probably a VX220).


Selling at a sensible price for an original Exige. All the VHPD engined cars are £41,500 - 57,500 on Pistonheads.


The bodywork isn’t perfect with some cracks and scruffs, reflecting its age, but overall it looks nice enough.


I’m pricing it at a bargain basement take it or leave it price of £36,995 because I want it to sell and don’t want to have to spend ages dealing with people making silly offers.
