There were no white 2005 cars. Lots of Saffron Yellow and Storm Ti cars were ordered. Early base cars had dual oil coolers. Later 05 base cars got one oil cooler. Late sport pack cars got heavier Exige wheels.

I'd followed the S1 and S2 Elise/Exige for years... I always loved the idea of a minimal lightweight mid engined car. But I thought the car would be either impossible to buy, or too small for me to fit. The day I sat in an Exige, I knew I was going to buy one. No question. And today? No regrets!!!!

Aspen White has been around since 06. It's a premium metallic $1200 upgrade. New this year is classic non-metallic Monaco white.

Starlight black was offered in 05. It is metallic.
