Here we have something which is a bit out of the ordinary for us – Just arrived into stock we have this 2 owner 190BHP Lotus Exige in Graphite Grey.
The car is standard with the exception of an alloy radiator, WeaponR Exhaust and Decat (supplied but not currently fitted due to new MOT) and a TRD air filter.
Why is it out of the ordinary for us? Well its not a show winner! The car has been driven and enjoyed by its former owner – qualified engineer and Lotus nut (sold this to fund an Audi S1 Exige) and has been meticulously maintained by this owner since he took delivery in 2010. Every single maintenance action/upgrade/oil change has been fastidiously logged on an 81 line Excel spreadsheet giving incredible detail of the mechanical upkeep. Prior to this the car was maintained by Lotus dealers and specialists. Slightly unconventional but ultimately a far more detailed than is normal history of the car.
As such the car drives impeccably. The car running with the decat is significantly quicker than standard with a particularly noticeable improvement in torque in the first cam zone.
All new Khumo V700 tyres fitted – Heater fan resistor pack replaced by us
Cosmetically there are a few marks here and there on the car and a star craze mark on the rear flank (usually caused by something slipping around in the boot during cornering). The alloys still have the original satin black finish. Interior is in good order with no bolster wear on the seats. Please note this car has the standard probax NOT the sport pack probax with harness holes. No AC.
So in summary an absolutely riotous car the exhaust is loud (conmplete with pops and bangs) so you aren’t going to be doing any 88db trackdays in it but the car drives 100% no weak steering rack/ball joints etc. HPI clear and checked underneath/wishbones all spot on.
