Thumbs up 2006 Elise For Sale

Its time to move and my new spot does not have a garage for this beautiful race car. Only 25k miles and the car is in mint condition and drives like a dream. Touring and Sport packages as well as both the soft and hard top. It also has some incredible upgrades: exhaust, sound system, sector 111 2 piece rotor brakes, baffled oil pan, and carbon center console/shift knob amongst others. And, a lot of beautiful styling which you can see in the photos. The car was completely evaluated by Waldir at Intermecanica (and, as a lot of you know, they focus entirely on Lotuses.) I am the 3rd owner and all records have been meticulously maintained. The car has never been tracked. Clean title.

Though it makes me sad to part with her, I know my loss will be someone else's gain. I am in San Diego, CA.

$36,000 please email ([email protected]) or PM with questions.

Hey Scott,

Thanks! They were added by a previous owner. Unfortunately, I don't have the specs but they look awesome.

Hey all! I am moving soon and would much prefer to sell this amazing vehicle to someone from LT. I will reduce the price to $35,000, which is a really good price with the low mileage and upgrades!

Hi,
I don't know much about Elises, have always admired them when seen on the road. Given that this car is 13 years old, can it be used as a reliable driver, maybe 3-4 times a week? Will I need to do anything to get it in "daily driver" mode? AC works?
Thanks!

Darren,

Everything works great including the heat/ac. And, it is actually an amazing daily driver with a solid MPG.

Can you point me to where I can educate myself more about the Elise, specifically the 2006 MY? What do the Sport and Touring packages include? How much HP/TQ ? Sorry for the noobish questions. I've always enjoyed lightweight cars. Started with Miatas and now hopefully an Elise. I've never been inside one, let alone test drive it. I'm in central CA, so it's kinda hard to see your car in person, Lol.
Thanks,

Hmm. Let me find out the best sources for you. The car drives like nothing else in this weight class. The handling is insane which is why they are very common track cars. Compared to a Miata, the Elise is lower, louder, faster, and better looking (in my opinion.) The weight deficit, engine placement, and high red line makes it more engaging to drive, too. I wish you lived closer, so you could drive it even if you do not end up buying it!
