Courtesy of a one-off deal between General Motors and Lotus, the VX220 was based on a Series 2 Elise chassis and powered by a 145bhp Ecotec 2.2 Litre engine. This 2002 exceedingly smart example has remained in its current ownership since 2004, had just one former keeper and travelled a mere 14,000 warranted miles. Its Blue bodywork is complemented by Dark Blue leather interior trim. The vendor considers the bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, engine and five-speed manual transmission to all be in 'excellent' order, and informs us the suspension geometry has been checked and set by VX220 specialist Plans Motorsport. The Vauxhall (including appropriate registration '55 VXL' valued at £1800 in 2003 ) is now offered complete with: dealer-fitted sports exhaust; upgraded Mintex brake pads; original soft top and stowage bag; remote alarm/immobiliser; fully-stamped Vauxhall/VX220 specialist service history; pair of keys with OEM tag; original owner's manuals and supporting booklets; extensive folder of receipts; and all MOTs from 2005, plus one valid to September 23, 2020.
