This very rarely available genuine Lotus Elise S1 Sport 190 was built in February 1998 by the Lotus Motorsport department, and is the second (of 36 in total) Sport 190 built. This is confirmed by the factory certificate of provenance.

The exact specification of the Sport 190 cars often varied, as the they were custom built by the Motorsport department, but in addition to the general standard 190 spec, this car was fitted with Dynamics two-way adjustable dampers with remote reservoirs.  Additionally the car sits on a very rare set of lightweight magnesium road wheels, currently fitted with Lotus spec Yokohama tyres.

In 2001, the second owner of the car, took it to renowned engine tuners Turbo Technics, who carried out their TT260 conversion to the VHPD engine.  This upgrade, as the name suggests, delivers 260bhp and 200lb/ft, via a wealth of modifications, including forged pistons & rods, chargecooled supercharger system, tuned induction with 8 injectors. An Emerald ECU ensures that full control of the engine delivers the optimum from the hardware upgrades.

The car presents excellently in original Azure Blue, having recently had stone chips repaired on the front clamshell. The original cloth sports interior is complete and in very good overall condition.  The black soft top roof is also present and in very good condition.

Having had light use over the last few years, it has been part of a small collection by the current owner (since 2014) – the history shows the car has covered only 1000 miles since 2013, with mileage currently at 15500.

Having been regularly maintained in its current ownership, by Hangar 111, in 2021 the car was subject to a major service, including replacement of the cambelt, tensioner, and water pump.  It has just had a health check and given a fresh MOT ready for its next owner.

Present with the car is the bolt-in petty bar which completes the orignial roll over protection. Also a set of original VHPD “swan neck” throttle bodies with Lotus carbon fibre airbox, should a future owner wish to return the engine to standard specification.
