Warm hearted garage seeks beautiful Exige S1

Post by Woz123 » Thu Dec 17, 2015 6:56 pm

Hi all, Happy Christmas!

My name is Warren, I am a potential Exige S1 owner seeking the right car. I live near Ashford in Kent and i am looking for a reasonable S1. I am only interested in original k series powered cars. I was sales manager for Piper Cams from 1991- 2007 and tuning the K has always been a passion of mine. In saying that i would be looking to keep the Exige fairly standard.

For my sins i own a 220+ bhp k series powered MG Midget. I built it in the 90's, originally with a 1400 k and then in 2001 I built an 1800 for it, which is fun. But you can't have too many toys and i have always had a hankering towards the S1 Exige and now i think i had better do something about it before i get to old to get in & out of one.

Any pointers welcome. Thanks.

Welcome Woz, sounds like a plan. There doesn't seem to be too many around at the moment. Fingers crossed though :thumbup:

I'm restoring one, see owners subtopics. Now I won't lie, work's kind of stalled but it should be a rolling chassis with a freshly trimmed interior and painted sills sometime in Feb....plans are afoot :mrgreen: again!

Hi Warren :wave: Good luck with your search! Any S1s that come up for sale anywhere do tend to get posted or at least discussed on here so keep an eye on this forum (Exigers are an eagle-eyed bunch) :)

There was an Azure Blue one advertised the other week (bb/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=19354) but not much else recently.

Thanks guys for your comments.

I am going to look at an S1 Exige tomorrow, he's asking 32.5k for it. What sort of mileage/condition would you expect at that price?
2001 S1 Exige 190 bhp K Series New Aluminium
1970 MG Midget 220 bhp K Series Nightfire Red
