2006 Lotus Elise Chili Red: VF3, Nitron, Lots of carbon Track Ready

2006 Lotus Elise clean title in hand
Chili Red
46K miles


$42.5k obo

$41.5k with only volks on brand new r888r 205/245



I have owned this car for the last 8 years and it has been a great car but it is time for me to let it go. I bought the car off the forum with around 28k miles with some of the mods on it already. The car was daily driven for the first 3 years and then changed over to a weekend car then over the past 2 years it has been primarily a track car and occasional cars and coffee. I usually get out to the track 4-6 times a year and have over time replaced parts that failed or just were not up to the task with better parts. Most of the nuts and bolts related to the supercharger are wired or pinned then torque painted in place as I had a bolt back out of the alternator and it cost me a track weekend. The suspension bolts also have torque paint for a quick reference to make sure nothing has backed out or loosened. The car could be driven on the street (not California friendly) and is occasionally for club drives or shows but it is mostly taken to the track. Fluids are changed every other event and all bolts are quick checked for torque or damage.
Paint is pretty clean; it had a full polish last year with an application of c-quartz ceramic coating. The side sill clear bra was replaced about 4 years ago when the side sills went on and are in good condition with minor abrasions. The front still has the original star shield it shows a few chips but the paint underneath is mostly defect free. The driver’s door has a small chip that has been filled but is not really noticeable from 5 ft.
I believe everything is sorted on this car and it can keep up with pretty much anything on track. I have way more money and time into this car than I could ever get out but I believe my price is fair. I am sure I have missed some parts but I have hit the highlights for sure. I also have a bunch of spare parts and some of the stuff removed off of the car like carpets, fog lights and other parts I have not had time to install that will come with the car. Shoot me a pm if you would like my phone number to speak about the car or setup a time to take a look at it.

Lowered the price a little and gave an option for only one set of wheels. Also posted a video from a track shakedown for a little tease of the sound this thing makes.

Looks like the A/C and radio are intact, correct?

Car looks like a great track-oriented machine with street-going ability, GLWS.

Correct on both accounts. The AC like most isnt the greatest but about mid pack out of all the other elises I have been in. The radio works on its own or streaming from the tablet.

Thanks for the comment, it has been a great car that has defiantly leaned more track over the years. Hard not to as this car is just so at home on the track.

This car was pulling on me on the straights with a passenger, so he has more then the 265 WHP then I have.
Very well could have more, that was a fun day for sure would have been better if I had the suspension that is on the car now:DV:.

Some interest but no buyers yet,pick this up while you still can. If you wanted a more street oriented car just replace the shocks with something softer and you have an amazing street car.

I've had the pleasure of seeing this car at the track several times and even got to drive it once. It is intimidatingly fast. Tons of upgrades. The owner is very meticulous about maintenance.

I saw your car on Wheelwell recently, but didn't realize it was for sale.
What an absolute beast. If I had an easy way to sell mine to upgrade, I would be first in line.
There's no way you could build anything even remotely close to this for the asking price.

Amazing car. GLWS

Well looks like photobucket wants 400 dollars a year to host photos. I will upload a smaller set of pics if you would like more or something specific just message me.
