First off let me say I bought this car directly from Phil on Labor Day of last year. Since that time I have raced and love this insane machine and truly HATE to have to sell it. I had another 2005 that I sold in order to purchase this one so it will hurt twice as I will now be losing both of them. I am selling this gem because of family issues that are out of my control but have to be put as the highest priority. I just did the full gambit of off season maintenance, including new oil, flush radiator and SC coolant, Castrol SRF brake fluid, new brake pads and full once over for any check for prerace season.
I am not trying to make money on this, I just want it to go to a good home. I am asking what I have into and then also adding in the spares. This Lotus according to BoE, if they could recreate it, would cost over $200k PLUS the cost of the donor car. Asking price is $70k picked up in Jacksonville, FL.
This was BoEs Lotus track car that was purchased last year from Phil. It started as a 2005 Lotus Elise purchased in Dec 2005 from Florida then converted to a NASA ST1/TT1/TTU track car by BOE Fabrication in Overland Park, Kansas. The modifications included front and rear carbon fiber clamshells, custom aero components, a 6-point roll cage, Penske suspension, AP Racing brakes, and more. Power comes from a supercharged 1.8L 2ZZ-GE four that can run several tuning configurations and is paired with a Quaife BWR sequential manual transmission. The car has claimed a number of track records during its career, and is now offered with spares.
The body is made from dry-laid carbon fiber and styled around a circa-2010 Exige front clip and a 6″ widebody rear clamshell. The front shell weighs about 11 pounds and the rear shell 15 pounds. An 8″ carbon front splitter is present along with Reverie canards, custom aluminum side skirts, and a BOE diffuser. A custom Crawford swan neck wing is mounted to the rear frame using 7×7 carbon fiber uprights with honeycomb cores. The front windshield was just replaced with an Optic Armor Lexan windscreen.
The car rides on a set of 15×8″ Enkei wheels with 245-width tires on the front and 15×10″ 949 Racing wheels with 275-width tires in the rear. The ride height is set to approximately 70mm using custom-valved Penske shock absorbers, 900 lb/in front springs, and 1,100 lb/in rear springs.
A pair of AP Racing 5000 Pro calipers can be seen behind the front wheels, while rear braking is from AP Racing Lotus front calipers. The rotors are two-piece full floating units from BOE and the brakes are controlled by a BOE manual brake bias cage with a Tilton bias bar.
The interior features a 60/40 split aluminum firewall along with a VSA 6-point roll cage, a pair of Tillet carbon seats, Schroth harnesses, and more. A remote brake bias adjuster is present on the dash and the included data logging system is comprised of an AiM Evo 4+, AiM formula wheel, AiM Smarty camera, and BOE Fastworks software.
The supercharged 1.8L 2ZZ-GE four features 10.5:1 compression and is equipped with Arias pistons and a BOE dry sump oiling system. A CNC-ported JCR cylinder head is fitted with a Ferrea valve train with dual springs and solid rockers as well as stage 3 cams. Other additions include a DMC stainless exhaust header and BOE surge tank. Two Lotus T4 ECUs are included, with each tuned for one of the following power configurations:
• Current setup: Whipple 2300 blower, pulley, tune, and belt; 100 octane fuel; 430 whp
• Alternate setup: TVS 1320 blower, pulley, tune, and belt; 100 octane fuel; 330 whp
This magnificent machine is wrapped in 3M vinyl as well as PPF on the front and quarter panels. Spares include rims, tires, brake pads and jugs of MS109 fuel. This is a once in a lifetime build that will blow your mind once you see the quality and attention to detail that has been put into this Lotus. Best thing is that I was able to obtain the Kansas Title for the vehicle so right now it is still a titled one owner 2005 Lotus Elise.
