Probably one of the closest thing to Lotus Elise in pure driving pleasure. I had the opportunity to take ownership from a local owner here in SoCal, where the car is still located. Absolutely 100% stock and 100% garaged - no modifications, inside and out. The only modification is adding a set of wires to the battery for hooking up the battery maintainer.

The CR includes factory hardtop, convertible top deleted, additional chassis bracing in the soft top well, upgraded springs, Bilstein shocks, and anti-roll bars, special exhaust, shorter throw shifter, special upholstery with yellow stitching, and more.

Owner's Name: Eric
Price: $57,500 (see description)
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Contact: PM serious inquiries and I'll return my cell number to call or text.

Details about the Car:

- 1 of 699 CR built
- 1 of 200 in Apex Blue Pearl
- 1 of 12 in this condition (my hunch)
- Factory radio and A/C

- 10,894 miles, will go up very slowly
- Always garaged and covered (the cover is designed for the CR from factory)
- Third owner (age 40's), clear title. Purchased from local owner June 2017 here in SoCal
- No accidents, dents, bodywork, or repaints
- OEM CR floor mats stored since purchased
- Recent maintenance records, manuals, receipts, spare keys, radio key, and Honda wheel locks
- Full oil/fluid flush when purchased (oil, brake, MTF, diff, coolant)
- 4 wheel balance and alignment to match CR spec
- New OEM battery (added the wires to hook up to the battery maintainer)
- Clear XPEL Ultimate protection wrap - whole quarter front panel of the car (including hood) up to the door panels, side mirrors, side rockers, and rear lower bumper behind the rear tires
- OEM rims are fitted with Yokohama S.drive ultra high performance tires in correct CR sizes F/R

- Asking price includes my second wheel set: black 17" Volk Ray’s Engineering RE30 Wheels (forged and ultra lightweight) 17x8, 17x9 with brand new Nitto NT01 in 225/45/17 front and 255/40/17 rear (see pictures)
- The combination above eliminated big understeer for me even under mild mountain driving. No rubbing or fender rolling
- No curb damage on any of my OEM or Volk rims

I love this car so much but recently found a Lotus Evora S Heritage Race Edition and I need to let go of this one (unfortunately). I wish I can keep it but I have no where to garage this. Thanks for looking!

Was this the one offered by Sterling Sackey?

I also can't help wondering why someone would put cheap-ass S-Drives on such a rare performance-oriented car.

:scratchhead:
I know! The original seller got that on for some reason. That is why I quickly swap that out and put on the black forged Volk RE30 with the Nitto's - perfect for this rare performance-oriented car.

zakiu - I owned an Elise before. Not sure if you owned an S2000 CR?
I've owned multiple Eliges and multiple S2000s as well, including a track oriented AP1, track oriented AP1 and a GPW CR, which was far more rare than this car is. Checkmate! The CR feels like a Cadillac compared to Eliges.

I spared no expense so I never had cheap tires on mine. GLWS. BAT in April is probably your best bet. GLWS

Didn't know we were playing chess with my listing! Thanks for the bump as I was wondering why I'm getting new interests in the past week. Car is SOLD!

I don’t have forum permission to PM you, but I heard a few days ago that the car still “may” be available? It seems like I may be wrong though. If it is for sale please contact me at [email protected]. Highly interested
