I saw that one on ebay also. I am pretty sure its been in an accident. Notice the lack of a rear diffuser...

That car has my dream color combo going on.

I would suspect it had been hit also. Notice the stripes do not continue onto the rear clam from the engine cover......

Have it looked at by a pro Lotus mechanic and a good body shop guru. They could tell you whether the replacement rear end was done well and if there is some other things underneath the shell is hiding. If it all pans out it may be worth grabbing.

Or...

Avoid it like the plague and find another.

Acccident was in CA. Could it be this car:

Don't know if its the same car? Seems to be 3 years missing on carfax report (2006- 2009)?
If it is the same car then it has 2 damage history's, the front seems to have been replaced also.

I keep seeing tons of elises selling for $24k-$27k with rebuilt/salvaged titles... What the hell is going on?? Do they see the retarded dealers listing for $34k and go, cool I could get at least $26,000!!!

There is a reason those dealer cars have been up for 6+ months lmao..

I am almost positive that most of the people bidding, do not have a clue what has been done to this car... Sad really...

I sent an email as soon as the ad went up, also questioning the lack of diffuser, discontinuity of the stripe etc. and never heard back.
