It is painted in the same red, gold and white colour scheme as the Lotus Type 49 Formula One car (along with several other Lotus F1, F2, F3 and sports racers) driven by, amongst others, Graham Hill and Jochen Rindt. According to group Lotus very own Archivist just 92 standard 118hp Elise Type 49 covering LHD and RHD were produced and the 111S 143hp based Type 49 totals 43 cars covering both LHD & RHD. Unveiled at the 1999 London Motorshow at Earls Court and with a fraction of the total 135 cars made surviving, this Gold Leaf special edition is a collectors dream.EQUIPMENTComposite body panels with detachable front and rear clamshells, extruded anodised aluminium epoxy-bonded spaceframe chassis, integral roll over hoop, STACK electronic speedo and tacho with multifunction LCD, 12v socket, interior lamp switch, tell-tale warning lamps, odometer, trip recorder, instrument brightness control, pump lumbar support. Type 49 Specification; Special red, white and gold colour scheme, headlamp covers, gold 6-spoke alloy wheels, Lotus/Nardi steering wheel covered with black leather and red Alcantara, black leather and red alcantara sports seats. Factory Options; Passenger footrest, radio, Thatcham One approved Cobra alarm/immobiliser.EXTERIORAs a Type 49 Gold Leaf special edition, this sports car was available in its distinctive red, white and gold colour scheme. With just one careful owner and 9,631 road miles from new, this cars condition is stunning with even the fragile underside blue jacking stickers still being attached! The orange epoxy resin used to bond the aluminium at factory is still bright and the V.I.N. stamped in the chassis to the offside rear wheel arch area is clearly visible. The car has a bright gloss shine and is first paint but some of the composite body panels have minor micro-blisters. Wheel arch apertures and the flat underside to aid aerodynamics are very clean and the Black material hood and simple roof apparatus is perfect. Very special.INTERIOREngineering excellence is built into the interior with the aim to save weight and provide ultimate driver focused enjoyment. Exclusivity with the unique Black leather and Red Alcantara sports seats add to the occasion and all Type 49 enhancements such as the Lotus/Nardi steering wheel covered with black leather and red Alcantara and red carpet mats are pristine and unworn. The wide inner-sills both displaying the supplying dealer sticker are protected by a leather/cloth pad and unlike most, are unworn thanks to the only owners careful entry and exit technique! The doors remain open thanks to undamaged door retaining plates and the windows wind up and down smoothly. An interior Colin Chapman would be proud of and an impeccably preserved Lotus Elise Series One with added rarity.ENGINE & TRANSMISSIONEntirely standard the four cylinder in-line 16-valve engine with aluminium engine block and cylinder head displaces 1796cc to produce 118hp at 5500rpm and 165Nm torque at 3000rpm. The vehicle has benefitted from a full C Service and cambelt and water pump change in December 2019. Lightweight construction, rear wheel drive and mid-mounted engine, this ticks the core race car credentials and the driving experience is a must for any petrolhead. The clean engine bay and front compartment display a fully intact heat insulation panel, factory identification sticker, PDI markings and labels. The 5-speed close ratio gearbox with short throw is precise and direct.WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKESThe special edition Type 49 has Gold painted 6 spoke 111S alloy wheels which are pristine and have never been refurbished. A collector will be pleased to see factory fitted front 185/55 R15 and rear 225/45 R16 Pirelli P-Zero tyres still fitted with ample tread. The cast iron 282mm ventilated discs with unique Lotus/AP Racing opposed piston front calipers have been overhauled to provide powerful stopping power.HISTORY FILERegistered on the 27th April 2000 by Lotus main dealers, Peter Smith Sports
