Following up on this topic
I have a 57 plate Renault Clio Sport F1 numbered edition coming up for sale unmolested in Blue with optional leather seats in Black.
About to list on eBay unless anyone on here is looking for a collectable car that's not a Mini.
I will advertise it on here to comply with for sale rules if any one is genuinely interested.
I would rather it went to a knowledgeable owner.

Don't forget the S1 Lotus Elise, prices are rising steadily for good unmolested examples. I've had mine from new but never envisioned it becoming a "classic" as such.

Is it a supercharged modified K-series ? (seeing as it's an S1).

Yes it's got a different Crank, Rods and pistons.
The head gasket is something special too .
It sounds like a bag of nails when idling be but awesome when on full chat.
Hangar 111 / turbo technics did the conversion I believe.
There's a file full of stuff with it.
Not my cup of tea I'm afraid but it does go very very well.
I prefer the 'comfort' of my 911😊 aside from Mini's.

I had an Azure Blue S1 Elise, paid £7k in 2006 for it ! Different times…

One I have just bought that will almost certainly go crazy soon is a late 996.2 911 C2. So that’s RWD, 3.6 , lightweight and narrow body. I can’t see them staying south of £20k for very long now.

Yes 2006 would have been the right time to buy an S1, prices had bottomed out by then, different story now so they are possibly now NOT the right one to buy as values probably won't increase much more.
