Hofmann’s are proud to present this original and unmolested example of a 1998 Series one Lotus Elise, in striking Inferno Red Metallic, now available at our Henley-on-Thames showroom.
This meticulously cared-for masterpiece boasts only 7397 miles on the clock and proudly stands as a factory original and one-owner example.
The exterior gleams in the optioned metallic finish, exuding a timeless elegance that turns heads wherever it ventures. Complementing this visual delight are the sumptuous Black leather seats, adding a touch of luxury to the lightweight racing-inspired cockpit. Inside, you’ll find an optional Radio kit that elevates your driving experience with seamless entertainment, perfectly harmonizing with the Elise’s spirited character. Additionally, an optional Alarm system ensures peace of mind, safeguarding your investment with state-of-the-art security features.
Beneath the bonnet lies a marvel of engineering: the Lotus Elise Series 1 is powered by a high-revving, 1.8 litre naturally aspirated engine that delivers an exhilarating 120 horsepower. Due to the vehicle’s low weight (a mere 725kg!), this lightweight powerhouse can propel the Elise from 0 to 60 mph in an impressive 5.8 seconds, ensuring every drive is an adrenaline-pumping experience. The Elise’s meticulously tuned suspension and razor-sharp steering offer an unrivalled connection between driver and road, delivering unparalleled handling and agility that they are renowned for.
PLEASE NOTE – This Elise still has the original manufacturer fitted Pirelli P-Zero tyres equipped. Although this is fantastic for a collector, we would recommend replacing the tyres before regular road use.
This Lotus Elise represents an automotive icon, a perfect balance of raw performance and refined craftsmanship. With its low mileage and one-owner provenance, it stands as a testament to meticulous care and admiration. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of automotive history – visit Hofmann’s Henley today and experience the sheer thrill of Lotus engineering first-hand.
