Exige S1 for sale in Switzerland [by dealer now]

Post by trackrod »

A fellow member in a German Lotus forum likes to sell his Exige S1:

Exige S1, 2001, 28.000 km / 17.000 mls, original LHD, mustard yellow, VHPD, motorsport seats and AC, 2 owners, looks like a very original car and has been part of a Swiss Lotus collection, even the resonator valve is still there, comes with 'Certificate of Provenance'

The price is 50.000 CHF (ca. 40.000 GBP). The car is located in Switzerland and thus needs to be taxed when imported into EU countries.

I offered him to place this information on exiges.com on behalf of him. Neither do I know the car nor do I know the vendor in person so please act with typical precaution when dealing over the internet :!:

Just contact me via PM and I'll give you his email address.

I had a hard time to decide not to buy it as a second one because this is such a lovely car.

40k.... I have been trying to work out if any additional import taxes are due, even with 20pc vat it could be in the uk for £50k.

I did some research on this topic too and it looks like that only the VAT has to be paid. No customs duty are charged for cars that have been manufactured within the EU.

Don't convert such a car as it is perfect like it is. I'm currently driving a RHD Elise here in Germany and my Exige is RHD too. It would have been an easy task to convert
it to LHD during the restoration but I like to keep it original. For me the RHD restrictions are minimal. But others don't like it at all and the RHD cars are always the cheaper ones over here.

Driving a LHD Exige in Great Britain must be truly exotic 8-)
