Hello,

I am selling my 2006 Lotus Exige in Krypton Green.

$45k OBO.

VIN: SCCPC11156HL82439

LSD
Traction Control
Star Shield
Track Pack
Touring Pack

NEW PHOTOS ADDED, HIGH RESOLUTION AVAILABLE HERE: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/12dME9URYJehZQ6VCr6pL3FYHsRcVvT12?usp=sharing

Mileage is currently in the ballpark of 12.9k, but I still do drive the car (seldom, twice a month or so).

Clean Carfax. No accident history. No non-Carfax incidents to my knowledge, none during my ownership.

Everything is OEM on the car except for the tires (60%+ life remaining Bridgestone RE71R).

Comes with car cover for an Elise that fits fine.

Car was just fully detailed, interior and exterior, and ceramic coated this March. Carbon fiber wrap applied to the lower sills by prior owner which helps prevent the normal rock destruction those experience. The one has a scuff on it that doesn't like to wipe off, but I'd be happy to have the wraps removed or re-wrapped for the next owner upon request.

Purchased in Fall of 2016. Annual oil changes at the local Lotus dealership. No other maintenance has been required. It's likely going in next week for another oil change and NYS inspection.

This was intended to be a keeper car, but I have a 7 month old child now and never have time to drive it.

Pre-purchase inspections welcome and encouraged, especially for non-local buyers. Canadian buyers or out-of-region buyers welcome, happy to coordinate shipping or transfer across the border as I'm only about 20 miles from the Peace Bridge to Canada.

Located in Hamburg, NY, 15 miles south of Buffalo, NY.

Excuse my derelict landscaping in the photos. This is a historic home we've been renovating since 2017 and we're finally now breaking into the landscaping/exterior finishing phase this Summer.

Thanks!

MODS - I am an ignoramus and ignored the "NO FEELER THREADS" rule, so feel free to remove the Feeler aspect of the title as applicable since I would sell the car for the right deal. I think "feelings" may be more appropriate than "feeler" because my feelings don't want to sell this car, but I will ;)

How do you have front S240 pads when the S240 uses a completely different caliper than the 2006/2007 Exige/Exige S? Just curious. GLWS.

Great question. The prior owner told me that those were the pads used. I never checked because they're still at 80%+ life. I'll remove it from the ad because that's clearly inaccurate!

I've never been a fan of this color, but you rarely see unmolested examples of the Elise or Exige anymore, this is a gem.

I love to see clean, unmodified examples turn up here and there. Modification temptation is a very real but so far I have resisted and appreciate having a clean, unmodified car. As things break or wear out, I plan to do some upgrades just for reliability, safety, and usability, but I'd like to keep the original essence of the car in tact.

Love these early Exiges. This one looks like a gem. GLWS!

Like you, I'd like to enjoy the car the way it was stock, and keep it that way. I bought an '06 Exige last week that has no modifications whatsoever, and it will mostly stay that way with me (I'm upgrading to a Bluetooth headunit, but I'll keep the original to easily restore back to stock). A thread on my car will be coming soon.

OP, GLWS, looks like a clean Exige!

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I agree - bone stock cars like this are surely uncommon. Nothing against modified cars - if I got another Lotus to track, I'd start with one modified, but this was never intended to be a dedicated track-type car for me.

Per the listing, I've received a couple of offers just below where I'm willing to move the car. I simply need to be above my trade + tax savings value to sell it privately. I'd really like the car to stay within the Lotus community if possible, though, and would break even on that figure as part of a private sale to keep it here.

Due to this, I'm going to offer the car at $45k or best offer which is functionally where my break even inclusive of tax savings on trade is. I'll include a pre-purchase inspection in that price, with anything that comes up on it repaired prior to delivery. I don't anticipate any findings but I'll gladly have it taken care of if the report discovers anything.

Have had multiple parties write fair offers as of this morning. I’m finalizing some deal details on my side, but it’s looking very likely this Lotus stays in the LotusTalk community ?
