2001 Exige S1 - 7100 miles and Completely Original

2001 Exige S1 – 7100 miles and Completely Original

£57,750


Completely original Exige S1 with only 7100 miles. It even has the air intake resonator valve that most have removed and Yokohama A539 tyres!
Here is the spec:
• Lotus Exige S1, registered September 2001
• 177BHP
• Calypso Red
• Sports seats with harnesses
• Alcantara pack
• Radio fitting kit
• Category 1 alarm
• Air Conditioning
• Exige carpet mats

I bought this car a few years ago from a private collector who had owned it since 2009 but only covered about 500 miles. At the time I had it fully checked over by Byron at JCT600 Lotus in Leeds and a C service completed.

I’m a Lotus enthusiast, having previously owned an S2 Exige and we have an S1 Elise in the family. During my ownership, the car has always been garaged and never tracked.

I have MOT certificates that verify the mileage, and a number of SORN letters from the DVLA, indicating that the car was off the road for a number of years.

I want to be as honest as possible in describing the car - there are few minor issues that potential buyers need to be aware of:
• Adding to its originality, there is some classic S1 blistering of the paintwork on the lower part of the driver’s door. This is only noticeable if you look for it.
• A small hole in one of the exhaust tailpipes has been repaired and included in the sale is a brand new, original Lotus silencer and tailpipes.

Other than that, it is in superb condition both inside and out as you would expect with the mileage and has a fresh MOT (10th March) with no advisories.

At the asking price I will also include a full spare set of wheel rims, indoor and outdoor covers.

Selling simply due to lack of use. I have a young family demanding any spare time and it seems a waste to have it locked up in the garage for weeks on end.

Please email Nick at [email protected] for further details or pictures.

Hi gregus,

I might have what you are looking for, apart from a different colour and a slightly higher mileage my car seem to fit your requirements. Tried to contact you via private message but as I am nothing but an active lurker (can one be described as an active lurker?!) I realized that the private message functionality have not yet been activated on my account. If you are interested to continue discussion please let me know how I can contact you.

Nick H, my apologies for the thread hijack but I could not think of any other way to get my message through to gregus.

The price of this beautiful Exige S1 has been significantly reduced to GBP 45,500:

A lot of the asking prices on the Exige S1 market are strange as no one seems to buy the cars for the high prices. The market has just stalled.
If the red one with just 7000 mls on the clock does not sell very quickly I'd be surprised.
