Smile FS: 2007 Elise Clean, Clear Title, Rag included!

Owned this for a bit over a year, and i've moved onto different pastures (Another exotic). Love the car, just don't have time for 2 pleasure cars AND a daily driver. I'm disappointed I never got to experience the Lotus community, but every person i've met has been a really great human.

Low miles - 21,000
Clear Autocheck
Black Exterior trim re-finished 1 year ago

Pre-Inspection fully welcome and encouraged!

Issues: Car has slight scrapes underneath the front lip and slight protrusion near lip (See photo) The scrapes are not visible at all unless you're looking at it from the bottom. Car rides very low, watch out for steep inclines and speedbumps!

Otherwise, paint and trim are in excellent condition (See photos). Cloth headliner was replaced with rubberized coating over adhesive. Cloth covering for fixtures that secure the top also peeling, and recommend replace or simply remove it. Some small scratches and skuffs on the interior as is normal with a 10 year old car, nothing major. Additional photos available! Overall the paint is in fantastic shape.

Clean & Clear title in hand, no liens. Will gladly arrange for showing of vehicle to those with verified funds and who are serious about buying.

Asking $42,000

No low-ball offers, please

Interested persons please PM me

A little advice. Your first post here is a car for sale. Nobody here knows you, so members here will be cautious. You also give no indication as to where the car is, or how anyone could contact you.

Members are reminded that comments about the price of a car for sale aren't allowed unless requested by the Original Poster (OP). Thanks.

This car is also listed on ebay (seller doesn't have any feedback).

The description is a copy/paste from ebay to this forum. No issues with that, but the ad states "Car has slight scrapes underneath the front lip and slight protrusion near lip (See photo)"...there aren't any photos.

"OP" can you post photos? The video is nice.

Apologies for the lack of contact info, i'll edit the post!

Fully understand about no history, I'd be apprehensive as well.

FWIW, car was bought from wirewheel November 2015. Since i've added about 1500 miles (and the scrapes)

Just noticed the line about not being able to discuss price unless I ask, so i'm asking! You gents are here more often and see many more comparable cars than I do. Your insight is certainly appreciated.

IMO your price is too high, somewhere between way too high and medium too high, but maybe in June...

I recently spent several months looking at quite a few of these before I ended up buying. I have no desire to see the values of the Elise come down at all, but from my extensive search I would think $38K asking is where the market is now with your car. Maybe a bit more if you're willing to wait until summer. For my taste, I would also like to see the hardtop re-upholstered if you wanted top dollar.

Thanks guys.
Since I got my Gallardo I really can't provide the time the Lotus deserves. I figured i'd list it now while tax returns are pouring in and keep re-listing until summer. Compared to what these cars were going for when I bought it, it seems like the prices have crept up a bit. I'll take it into consideration! I'm certainly open to all reasonable offers and willing to deal, possibly trade (just not other cars). Thank you again.
