Just Bought a WCM Ultralite S2K!

Picked her up today. 1240 lbs and 240HP. Needs some minor work but she should be on the road shortly (SB 100 car). I'm stoked!

Yes, that is what he means by SB100. In CA you need to have an SB100 smog exemption in order to register specialty construction vehicles, since this car already had it done, it is legal.

Sweet. Where on earth was it for sale and how did I miss it? When I see them used on the market (not that often), they seem to hover in the $25k-27k range.

Pricing for new ones is here:

Thanks guys, I'm pretty excited about the car and yes it is street legal.

It was a local sale, not advertised, just came my way by chance and ended up being a right place, right time kind of thing.

Now if I can only find a proper steering wheel (the seller misplaced it) . . . .

Thanks Larry.

I have no plans to sell the Elise anytime soon.

When is the next GGLC autocross?
