ELISE SPORT 160 - SVA EXAMPLE, 1 OF JUST 50 MADE
|Private or Trade||Trade (Independent)|
One of just fifty examples made to comply with the SVA regulations of the time and with a genuine 160ps. This particular example is presented in an outstanding, original condition and specification with regular servicing and sensible upgrades undertaken when necessary. The paintwork has been very well preserved by the fitment of protective film to all leading surfaces.
The Sport 160 was a car designed with “attitude” and differed from the standard range of the time in many ways, including…
Lowered ride height
Unique, wider wheels
Sport suspension with adjustable spring platforms
Uprated anti-roll bar
Raised and tilted rear wing for more downforce
Sports exhaust with motorsport catalytic convertor
Unique seat trim with red Alcantara
The result was the fastest Elise to date, capable of 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds, helped by a weight of just 715kg.
With a limited run, the Sport 160 was in huge demand and the first fifty examples sold out within days of launch, prompting a further run but with a reduced output of just 150ps. This particular example has been serviced meticulously, as follows…
