Not sure the seller is too clued up , claims it is a 6 cylinder!

That is one very badly damaged car , it would need a LOT pf parts , and many hours of labour to restore. Not a restoration project to be undertaken lightly and without deep pockets.

Can't imagine that it would be financially worthwhile repairing.

Spare parts costs alone would be expensive, and if the chassis is bent (which it looks to be) will need specialist rigs to straighten.

Better to buy a good used one in good condition

When a Lotus was bent like that in an accident, it was always a new 'tub'. So many written off because of that... almost impossible to effect an accurate repair on the bonded chassis.

I agree, with the Elise it is intentionally straight unbent aluminium profiles that are glued together. If they are deformed once by an accident..and if they have to be bent again "straight", they are completely useless, soft and can tear. That won't be much different with the Aero I guess.

That's £20k to buy, must be import tax to pay. Got to be uneconomic.
