First post on LT and no pictures - a more thorough post will probably bring more success.

Iíll help give you a bump as well. At $37,500 for a California Edition thatís a good deal, but why not post some more pics (especially of the interior). If the carís mint itíll sell itself at that price.

How about some more info? For example....one owner?

I would also like to see some interior pictures. Where is the car located? Can you provide service history?

Also, you'll need to add some contact info as you don't have enough posts to private message on here.

Elise California

According to Lotus, the new $51,770 Elise California is meant to appeal to "the lifestyle market" and to showcase Lotus' aptitude for customization. In other words, it's really little more than a package of paint and interior upgrades. Mods that were made in the name of the Golden State including vintage-Ferrari-like silver egg-crate grillework, body-colored side air inlets, upgraded wheels, light two-tone leather interior, removable hard top, Alpine sound system, and a gargantuan rear spoiler that covers the entire rear end. Only 25 Ardent Red and 25 Saffron Yellow will be built, and no, you don't have to live in California to order one. But we would suggest moving quickly before they sell out.

Fantastic seats, much improved over the standard Elise seats, and the rare Y-Type wheels (though heavy) are quite sought-after.

Great car OP, GLWS.
