Probably old news but I’ve been in lockdown so behind (!) but saw the S1 got an airing in Practical Classics.

Normal by the numbers “racing car for the road” etc but still like seeing them in print.

Valuation guide are always entertaining too. If anyone has a project S1 going for £15k PLEASE contact me first 👍🤓

Few pictures for interest.

It's always nice to see a report about the Exige S1, thanks for sharing :thumbup:
It seems to be that they didn't put too much effort into research. On the first glance I see 'Exige 2000-2011' and 'replacing Konis with S2 Bilsteins will improve dynamics' which is certainly more an Elise S1 advice.

I’ve got a real soft spot for the S1, I’ve never been out in one let alone driven one. There’s just something about them that makes me really want one! 😄😄

:lol: You'd be lucky to get a decent S1 Elise for £15k these days, never mind an Exige!
