Lotus Excel Description:

For sale is this Classic 1987 Lotus Excel 2.2  SE 16v DOHC,  2 +2 5-speed manual sports car in exceptional condition.

The Lotus Excel makes an Ideal classic car to own with  its timeless sporty looks, front engine and rear wheel drive, exceptional handling, and superb performance. And with its fibreglass body, and galvanised chassis, it means the car does not spend half its life in the paint shop. In addition, the mechanics are robust but simple. The drive train consisting of its 5 speed gearbox and axle were Toyota Supra units, so reliability should not be an issue here. The 4 cylinder petrol engine is a  slant 2.2, 16 valve double overhead camshaft version, fitted with standard twin 45 Dellorto carburettors, giving 180 BHP in SE guise, and was a very reliable engine, used in may of the Lotus models.

This car has exceptional history, as shown in the photograph, with not only the stamped service book, but all the receipts to show the work carried out. Some of the many jobs have been two cambelt changes in its life, stainless exhaust, rear adjustable shock absorbers, refurbished alloys (all 5 ), recent new battery, clutch slave cylinder etc, etc. More photos are available.
