Re: Jonny's S1 Exige for sale (190)

Post by jonnyfox » Thu Nov 29, 2018 5:17 pm

Well it's been one hell of an adventure. The question I suppose is why after all these years and all that hard work would I want to sell? The answer, well as many of you know I have an R300 which I love equally as much as my Exige and it's on that where I'd like to spend my money. Simple. Getting this car back on the road was something else this summer, really awesome but I have neglected what I truly enjoy and I want it back, my R300 and track time with my mates are very special to me. There is no rush as I am completely unprepared to sell so initially it'll only be posted on here. I will pop a link to my build thread and another to an album I made on flickr. I also do not consider it finished, I have a few little niggles to sort and jobs to do but nothing to hide. Early in the new year I plan to get these done or maybe someone else would like to make those plans, either way they are minor and in my case fastidious jobs that probably come from not knowing when to stop. These images do not do the car justice, I never got around to taking pretty pictures but anybody who views it will not be disappointed.

The car also comes with a few bits and bobs and spares including:
Original dampers
Original fuel tank and pump
Original stereo and speakers
Original dash trim both sides
Original matts (although new OE fitted)
Replacement new OE speedo
Replacement OE gearbox (close ratio)
Another set of new OE longerons
New boot floor and divider
New diffuser
Original S1 indoor cover
And lots of other stuff I cannot recall...

Mileage 52k (rebuilt)
Price £55k
190bhp
MOT till July 2019
Tax till end of 2018
Full service history up to and after restoration in the service book
Full MOT history including paperwork
Majority restoration receipts
Certificate of Provenance

Good Lord, are you mad fella? :crazy:

Why not keep it and use it properly for a year or three? You are unlikely to loose money, as you being the owner of what is almost certainly the best S1 Exige on the planet, I think the asking price is too low. Way too low in fact. You could enjoy some track time, let the car get some 'patina' and then still be able to sell high.


Fair play if you do sell though, just consider to spend the cash raised on an Evora, and revel in the best Lotus ever made :D :ugeek: :wave:

Lotus should buy it from you. There is none better. Ask Ady to suggest the right contact?

Looks fantastic John, I think you have the price spot on, no lower. Good used ones find homes in the low 40s. Yours is very special, best out there. For the right person it’s a rare treat.

Good Lord Jonny - there is soooo much of you invested in that Exige!

Difficult as it is I totally understand where you are coming from tho' - intense relationships sometimes you have to move on :)

All the best with the sale - I consider that you have rather competitively priced it ;)

Good grief. Strangely, I think I might understand your thinking. It’s a hell of an achievement, never to be forgotten (or repeated).
