Lotus Elan Series 1 And 2 Original Heater Box on 2040-parts.com
Cold Spring Harbor, New York, United States
This spare heater box was amongst a bunch of parts that I acquired when I purchased a 1964 Lotus Elan S1. The parts had been salvaged from another very early Elan in the 1970s and stored ever since. The outer casing has got light surface rust but frankly it should clean up really well and will look great when it's repainted. However, one of the vents has clearly been knocked off and has since disappeared. It's a similar box to a Triumph Spitfire so one should be able to source a new vent and repair it. These Elan heater boxes are very difficult to come by these days. Buyer responsible for shipping costs as it's a bulky item or can be picked up in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. No reserve, no Buy It Now. Get yourself a bargain.

The 2013 Volkswagen Golf – the Golf Mk 7 – is now on sale in the UK just weeks after its official debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Volkswagen has put the new Golf – the MK 7 version of the best-selling Golf – on sale in the UK already, with first customer cars due to arrive in January 2013 – although the range is still limited. On offer to order now in the UK is the Golf S, Golf SE and Golf GT, but if you want the new Golf GTI – or a BlueMotion of 4Motion Golf Mk 7 – you’re going to have to wait until well in to 2013 to be able to place your order.

Lotus has announced its new Exige S Roadster will be priced from £52,900 – exactly the same as the hard-top Exige S. It’s also slightly lighter than the fixed-head Exige, and matches its blistering acceleration times. That £52,900 tag makes the 345bhp Exige S Roadster £7500 pricier than a (pre-options list) Porsche Boxster S manual, though the 1328kg Porsche makes do with only 315bhp.
