(he has now retired). It is a very quick car. He completely stripped the car and rebuilt it to exacting mechanical standards. The engine has been rebuilt, is powerful and has lots of low down torque. The gearbox and differential were also rebuilt. It has fitted: Stainless steel exhaust: Braided steel brake lines: Revolution wheels: Roll Bar: Heater: Full tonneau cover: Lumenition: Roll over bar: Adjustable Spax Shock Absorbers: Original air filter box with new filter: Baffled sump: Brand new soft-top which has never been fitted…needs fitting…I have never used it.

The body is in need of some tlc….there is plenty of crazing, and the paintwork is not the best, but it polishes up to look good from a short distance away. Also included in the sale, is: 1/....a spare bonnet, which needs considerable work, but as these are very rare second-hand, it will be a worthwhile project to restore. 2/….a hard-top and mould. These are for a wide-cockpit S4…..I was told that these were made for a New Zealand Lotus 7. It would be quite easy for someone who is a capable fibreglass repairer to make the hardtop narrower to fit. There are no fittings with this hardtop.
