1998 Lotus Honda Elise - One owner, full restoration For Sale

If you are looking at this advert you don’t need me to tell you a story about the best chassis and the best four cylinder engine in the world, but I will:

The Elise chassis: A remarkable piece of engineering. Made by Hydro Aluminium from extruded aluminium glued and riveted together to form an immensely stiff and light weight platform on which to build an open top car. The bare chassis weighs about 70kg. When it came to market in 1997 it was revolutionary – and has become the basis of many modern sports cars since.

The Honda K20A: A masterpiece of engine design and arguably the best four cylinder engine ever built. The K20A from the Honda Civic Type R uses variable valve timing for both in intake and exhaust valves. The engine pushes out fantastic power, with a race-like redline of 8400 RPM.

The result, for me, is the perfect sports car. Brilliant, safe handling, and seriously rapid acceleration. It’ll bring a smile to your face whenever you drive it.

The issue with many Elise-Honda conversions is that many have been spoilt by DIY or budget installations mainly because the old Rover K-series had failed. So the result is an poorly maintained car with a dangerously fast power plant.

Not in this case: This is a one-owner, perfectly maintained car. Full, documented service history and MOTs. It has covered 102,955 miles, but that’s largely irrelevant. Everything has been renewed and it has just passed an MOT with no advisories. For the first eight years of its life, its fastidious lady owner used it as an everyday car. Then it had a total restoration and engine upgrade, and has covered only 4,000 miles since.

We have the original bill of sale from Bell and Colvill. It was supplied as a ‘Sport 140’ with the benefit of a removable steering wheel, carbon interior trim, and the now super-rare Technomagnesio Sport 190 wheels. Also present is the invoice from Blink Motorsport for the Honda engine conversion, with new brakes, bushes, ball joints, Nitron suspension, Yokohama Advan Neova tyres, carbon fibre air intakes, splitter and rear venturi, etc. etc.

This car is one of the best Elises we have ever seen and is a perfect car for any collection, for use as a track day car or just to use on special occasions. In fact, whenever you drive it, is a special occasion.

The problem with modern, expensive sports cars is they are simply too fast and too valuable to use to the full. The Lotus Elise is possibly one of the last, great analogue cars. With the Honda engine conversion this is the best sports car for the money bar none.
