2003 Lotus Elise 99T


2003 Lotus Elise 99T

The Lotus 99T F1 car was the last Lotus to ever win a Grand Prix. Driven by Ayrton Senna and Satoru Nakajima in 1987, the car ended up finishing 3rd overall in the season.

Painted in unique ‘Saffron Yellow’ with subtle blue detailing to mirror that of the original race car, the Elise Type 99T commemorates one of the most recognisable cars in the history of Formula One.

Unique black Lotus styled eight spoke wheels complete the racing look from the exterior. The interior is furnished in perforated black leather sports seats and door panels, complemented by a black alcantara dash panel. Cross-drilled brakes, CD player, black soft-top and black carpets complete the look.
