For sale is my 2006 polar blue Elise that I bought in March 2014 with 29,000 miles. This was/is my dream car that I obsessed over since the S2 Elise was first sold in the States in 2004. I spent years searching for an Elise that matched exactly what I was looking for (I specifically wanted the rare polar blue color which was only available in 06/07 – Only 35 polar blue Elises for the US in 2006 and even fewer in 2007). I tend to rotate through cars on a pretty regular basis, and the Elise is by far the longest I have ever owned a car. I am still hesitant about selling, but I’m looking to try something else and would need to free up the space first.

The Elise now has 48,5xx miles and has been meticulously maintained by myself and the prior 2 owners. Always garaged, and stored on hub stands with a Battery Tender and Stabil during the winters. I have every service/maintenance record or receipt from the original owner, including the window sticker and transaction documents from The Collection dealer in Florida, and tons of receipts from my ownership. The previous owners did not track the car. During my ownership, I have done quite a few reliability and performance modifications, and did about 4-5 track days per year. Oil changes and brake fluid were done every couple track days. Again, I have documented everything done to the car and have all receipts saved in a (large) folder. I have most of the original parts that can be included, as well as extra brake pads and rotors.

Link to for sale ad from last owner: https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f94...r-blue-205754/. Adding up my receipts, I have put about $20k into upgrading the car since then. You can certainly buy a cheaper Elise, but IMO I have done all the best upgrades to make a great reliable track day car that I still enjoy on the street.

Asking $35,800 as-is including original and spare parts.

I would be willing to convert some parts back to stock to lower the price a bit:
  • Subtract $1,800 if I remove the Penske coilovers, and replace with original stock Bilsteins
  • Subtract $500 if I remove the Tillett seat, harness, and harness bar, and replace with original

Located in Michigan. Message me here, or by email at [email protected].
