2006 Red Exige For Sale -- $42,000

2006 Red Lotus Exige
35,7XX Miles
Clean Title
$42,000
Located in Venice Beach, CA

I've decided to put my 2006 Lotus Exige up for sale. I've had it for over a year and a half and it is my second Exige. I've also owned an Evora S so am proud to be a part of the Lotus Community (my now wife had an Elise before all of mine!). I bought the car as a stop gap while I purchased a house and did construction. I had a Cayman GTS which was too expensive at the time. The plan was to keep it for about a year when things stabled and sell it. For six months I've debated it because I do love it so much. We all know there is nothing like an Elise/Exige. That being said, I think I'm ready to find something new (Evora GT maybe -- would use the back seats).

The car was purchased from a Lotustalk member in early 2018 and was shipped from NJ. Prior to the purchase I had a PPI done at an authorized dealership out there. They said the car was in good shape but had some recalls that needed to be done. I had the recalls done and shipped it out. I will use the phrase that the dealership used when I asked about the car. He said it was in great shape but was still a 12 year old car. The paint has minor scratches that can only be seen up close. From a few feet away (as I think the images show) the car looks immaculate. Upon receiving the car I immediately had the car serviced and smog tested by A-1. Harry told me the car was in great shape and brought up no issues. I then did a series of modifications which are mostly superficial. All body work has exclusively been done by Mulholland Motorsports. Julio has worked on this car (and my old Evora) and IMO does the best work. I purchased GRP Barge Boards from a LT member (brand new) and an SE Larini Exhaust from Wire Wheel. Both were installed by Mullholand. I had a Momo steering wheel installed but still have the original wheel with airbag. I put on brand new tires (Yokohama Advan) about a year ago which now have about a 1000 miles on them. I have a car cover as well. Best modification by far (IMO) was the exhaust which makes the car sound like a race car. The look of it is great too.

I have an Instagram account @scottc harze (https://www.instagram.com/scottcharze/) if you want to see additional pictures. I have not tracked the car since I've had it. The occasional canyon run, one which I did with the socallotus crew (Malibu). Car is currently in Venice Beach but I can take it to work in Beverly Hills if it's easier for someone to see it.

PM me if interested or you can text me at (three won zero) to five for - for three won nine

I am only posting on this site and maybe rennlist for now. I will then move on to more general car sale sites if doesn't sell. Thanks.

Nice looking car! Very rare to see a Cizeta Moroder in the background of one of your pics. There can only be a handful of those in existence (I think 12?!).

Anyway, don't mean to derail your thread. Beautiful Exige and good luck with your sale!

You have a keen eye. First I had ever heard at that car when I took mine there for a detail. Detail 301 is a cool detail shop in Beverly Hills which has essentially become an exotic car storage facility. It still amazes me that amongst all those crazy cars, our little Lotus' get so much attention. Anyway, thanks for the kind words about my car.

Thatís a Sweeet ride
 
How many horsies does this puppy cook up? Love the wheel and color combo, saw it once in the U.K. at the main dealership. Please explain the cloth seats/seat covers? Serious buyer...gracias

Thank you for the kind words about my Exige. It is still for sale although I'm not really actively trying to sell it. I've gotten a few good offers but will remain at (or near) asking price for now. The two cars I am looking at our at least 6 months away from being available, therefore I am not in a rush. Also, I just can't fully come to terms with getting rid of it.

Lotus is not a horsepower car if you are new to the brand. The 2006 N/A has 190 HP but weighs approximately 2000 lbs. It handles like nothing I've ever driven. The car has the base interior, thus the cloth with roll up windows. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck with your search.

In conversations with interested buyers (and at the advise of other forum members), it was suggested that I post photos of the engine, under the car, cosmetic flaws and tires. The car will be going up on autotrader, cars.com, etc within the week. I'd prefer to sell to a LT member because we all know the car and what it represents. I've also conceded to the fact that if I want my next car, I have to be more active trying to sell this one.

More photos. The photo of the rear (next to the Exige sticker) is touch up paint applied at Mulholland Motorsports.
