Further Information

  • Front driving lamps
  • Electric windows
  • Noise insulation panelling

Jonathon's comments:

'The Elise R is a really really exciting car to drive, once you stir the gear leaver and get the car 'on cam' it really flies. This is on top of the usual great Lotus handling they are so famous for. The history of the is that it was bought brand new by an elder gentleman, who only did a few hundred miles a year in the car. It was then sold to the chap who part exchanged it with us. It was his foray into Lotus ownership and quickly decided he wanted something more extreme so bought our Exige V6! The car has gone through

All cars at the Car Barn have a 145 point used car check, come with 6 months warranty provided in house and we welcome part exchanges.
