Thanks Barry, I feel it is a bargain too as i have priced it to sell, i really dont want it to hang around too long, i have scratched an itch and now i have an itch somewhere else. Its a drivable car too not like the very low milers around at the moment that owners are scared to take out or even put any more miles on them.

It’s a crime if cars such as these aren’t driven 

Only here once

How I would love to add that to my small Lotus fleet. But I fear my licence would not survive long.

Wonderful to see an example that is used and enjoyed.

Just put a standard house brick under the throttl;e pedal.

 

I claimed my first ever three points in it two years ago (first time in 38 years of driving), i was driving at 50 in a 50 limit, in top gear, and coming into a 30 limit village, i even saw the copper, so i eased off the throttle but as i was in 6th gear and its so long,  the damn car just didnt slow down quick enough. He got me at 36 in a 30. I blame Lotus for making top gear so long/high.

It didnt hang around long at that price and it wasnt expected to either.

Absolutely stonking example Martin. Hope I get to see it at some stage  - will you be doing Haynes again soon?

As i understand it, this one for sale above, has never had any body work done on it in its entire life and that there is rust just starting to show on the rear arches. Anyone interested please tread very carefully.

A lovely car but no. I'm sorry but this is a car that had its suspension and engine fettled by Lotus but that was it. It was in its time a truly outstanding and remarkably achievement to get this into showrooms and in the hands of drivers, but at that price, er, no thanks. Sorry, special, but not THAT special and I think there is too much sentimentalism in that price.

God doesn't want me, and the Devil isn't finished with me yet.

 

The small print.

My comments and observations are my own, invariably "tongue in cheek", and definitely, sarcastic in nature. Therefore, do not take my advice, suggestions, observations or posts seriously or personally and remember if you do, do anything, that I may have suggested, then you have done this based solely on your own decision to do so and therefore you acknowledge responsibility and accountability (I know, in this modern world these are the hardest things for you to accept) for your actions and indemnify me of any influence, responsibility, accountability, or liability, in what you have done. In other words, you did it, so suffer the consequences on your own!

That car has been for sale at around £124k for about two years already so its dropped a bit possibly due to CV-19, its the one that sold at auction for about £95k and totally agree its not worth that money when you can pick up genuine good solid LCs for around £45k to £50k.
