Due to needing to get some space i need to sell the Lotus.

A beautiful example of a 2002 135 Sport with a 190 rotrex supercharger fitted.  The power delivery on this car is sublime and very addictive.

The car was built for Mr Ricketts and he owned until 2015 when it was sold via Paul Matty sports cars.  I bought it off the 2nd owner in 2016.

The car was custom upgraded by Lotus Sport (build number 3 on the build plate) and given the 135 upgrade, sports exhaust, 135R springs and dampers.

This was the last of 3 cars with the Lotus Sport 135 upgrade in Racing green; the only one to have additional work done by Lotus Sport from production and the only 135 with the custom green interior.

She also has OZ racing wheels from the 135R

The car was taken to Turbo Technics in 2003 and fitted with the TT190 supercharger.  In 2013, the car went to Hangar111 for the TT to Rotrex conversion kit to be fitted. If you look at the H111 website, the photos of the conversion are of this car.

A alloy motorsport radiator was fitted in 2015.

I had the hard top retrimmed in vinyl to match original interior.  There is also a soft top which has barely been used.  The underside of the car is in great condition and i would guess it’s barely ever been driven in wet conditions.  I’ve always kept her garaged and on a battery conditioner.

Handling is amazing even on the soft T1Rs i fitted.  Put some A048s on and it takes it to another level.  I had to go for the softer tyres as the 48s were giving me a headache! Perhaps i’m getting too old.

Sports silencer with sports cat are fitted but a quiet silencer and a cat bypass pipe are also included.  Current setup is track friendly at castle combe.  There are spare green mats and a spare pair of front access panels in yellow.  They’re currently matt black, painted with peelable paint.  I just wanted to see what it would look like.

2 cobra alarm fobs and spare keys plus a folder of receipts, paperwork, certificate of provenance, photos when it was first bought, sales receipts and order forms.

This is a lovely example of an early 2002 (pre airbags, traction control, abs) rover S2.  The engine is bloody lovely and i will be very sad to see her go.

I have tons of photos so please contact me for further info or pictures.
