1996 Lotus Elise

Very early Elise (chassis #53). Mostly standard, a couple of features that make a very early car have been changed. It doesn't have the MMC disks anymore as you can't get decent pads for them and the previous owner reverted to the later model steel disks.

It's got a couple of interesting features that I haven't seen anywhere else; for example, it has cloth seats - every other Elise I looked at has leather.

Obviously it has a hardtop, but I do also have the soft top for it. Not recommended in winter, though.
