The vendor purchased this eye-catching 'Black badge' +2 from marque specialist Paul Matty just over two years ago. Treated to a body-off restoration by a previous owner, it has regularly featured in Classic & Sports Car magazine as one of the 'Our Classics' fleet. Its specification includes a glass sunroof, aftermarket steering wheel and rear seat child harnesses professionally fitted by Quickfit Safety Belt Services. The vendor currently considers the 1.6 litre twin-cam engine to be "extremely strong", the Red paintwork to be "excellent and very presentable", the Black interior to be "notably clean with no major rips or tears to the seats, and with excellent carpets and dash". He notes that "a couple of trim items need replacing, the rev-counter is inoperative, and there's a tiny leak in the clutch hydraulic system", but in summary feels the Lotus is "a lovely example that looks, sounds and drives as you would expect".
