I've seen this car a number of times in person and it's gorgeous. Bump for an awesome car and an even better seller, who clearly spared no expense during his ownership of the vehicle!

Awesome car, noticed it on AutoTrader. I am looking for an 05 06 however more of a Sunday street and less track oriented. Great work though! bump

Thank you! This was primarily a street driven car but upgraded to be safe and capable on track. If nobody buys it in the next few weeks with all the discounted upgrades and extras, I will probably start selling a number of items separately to bring down the price. It would be a pity if it does not sell as a complete package, since it looks beautiful and needs absolutely nothing to be enjoyed on the street (adjustable Nitron LSS shocks) or track. I have seen many Lotuses in the past few years but nothing like this one at this price point. Mileage seems to be the biggest concern, and I understand that, but it's not an issue on this car as it has not been abused and it was very well maintained. Well over 95% were gently driven highway miles. I welcome a thorough inspection at buyers expense. Whoever buys this car will understand what it's worth and enjoy it for many years if they decide to keep it long-term. Waldir at Intermecanic.com knows this car very well and can address any questions about quality and maintenance.

Funny enough, if I were to buy an entire new long block that costs somewhere around $4,500, together with all the other upgrades, that would make it a practically new car...and I would probably get over $2k for mine...but this car already has a proven and very strong and smooth engine/transmission/clutch/gears/synchros/shifter/etc.

Come to think of it, if someone is interested in the car with a brand new (professionally installed) engine (long block) for $42k, that can be arranged. I will check with Intermecanic.com tomorrow that I got the replacement costs right

Bump, price lowered to $38k for everything. At this price, you are only paying for upgrades.

Updated top post - there is interest but no ideal buyer for a complete package yet. Changing approach to exclude most removable items from price. Additional items can be purchased by the buyer of the car at significant discount, otherwise will be sold separately. Since all removable upgrades are already on the car, if buyer is not interested in them, it would take some time to have Intermecanica swap seats/exhaust/rear panel/diffuser/shocks/etc.

Bump, still available and with a notable discount for additional parts if buyer wants them. Most additional parts are already spoken for but the person who buys the car gets priority and a very favorable discount.

Thank you :)

Interest is picking up significantly with the revised configuration and price but I hope the right buyer shows up who appreciates the complete package at a really good price. Almost all removable parts have potential buyers already, so it looks like the car might be sold soon...I just want to give it another week or two before parting out.
