2005 Supercharged Lotus Elise in Starlight Black
Stunning Dedicated Race\Track Car asking $34K

I recently received my letter of recommendation for my competition license and will be running a different car\class and as such I am offering, albeit painfully so, my Elise for sale. I can’t say enough about what a phenomenal track car it is or the attention it gets in the paddock. I have truly enjoyed the Lotus experience but it won’t be practical to field the Lotus and another race car.

Note that this is dedicated race car with no emissions\AC\Air bags\trunk etc… I have a significant amount, but not all, of the removed components so depending on your local laws you may be able to tag it and I have clear title to the car.

The Elise has never been wrecked; there have been no wall impacts tire, concrete or otherwise and no car to car contact.

Condition wise, the car is excellent however being a track car the body has the typical amount of track rash on the front clam and along the sills, basically anywhere track debris will hit. I did lose a splitter at Road Atlanta last year. It pulled through the bolt holes cleanly and note that the APR splitter is mounted differently. I did have the dreaded jack slip on the driver side sill (two spots: where the jack slipped and where a jack stand hit that wasn’t entirely positioned yet). The roof has some scratches and spiderwebs. The sill area directly in front of the passenger rear tire has fiberglass damage (occurred when I lost the splitter). None of the damage has required repair and being a dedicated track car I have chosen not do so. Note that everything is 100% repairable as it is all cosmetic. The selling price is 2-3K under what I would normally list it for in the event you do wish to have the work done.

As is typical anytime you build a car I have far more into this Elise than the price reflects.

Weight = Aprox. 1900 lbs with no driver and less than a full tank of gas.
Dyno = 219 RWHP last June with built engine as detailed below which is capable of far more HP

Nice car, curious to know what would allow it to pass registration in CA other than the cat

I appreciate everyone's interest, but the Elise is now sold. I'm gonna miss that car and being a Lotus owner!
