Thanks everyone, car is now sold. I'm selling my 2006 aspen white Exige. The car has 13K miles on it and is in excellent condition, no issues. 2500 miles on the Toyo R888's on the car. Warranty good until March 31 2009.

I built this car to be a high quality, competitive track car as well as remaining user friendly on the street. She's been my daily driver for the last two years. A/C works well in this car, unlike the A/C in my Elise.

To look at this car You would think it is a stock Exige, which it is, but it is also 100% track ready, needs nothing. She also comes with everything You need to track it. I've tracked this car 4 or 5 days per year including the last event of the 2008 LCS season at Spring Mountain, less than 10 track days in total. There is no fuel starvation with this car. She is reliable and runs strong.

Car has been maintained by Mike Larsen at Norm Baker Lotus, including installation of TRD clutch, accusump, shocks and RTD brace ect. I have all receipts. Corner balance and alignment done by Carl ( thank you, Carl). Despite taping, the usual stone chipping on the lower starshield and some on the left lower fender behind the front wheel well is present. Below I have listed the improvements and the spares package that comes with the car.

T/A JRZ shocks. These shocks sell for $6,700. These are the best shocks available for the track and when adjusted for the street they give a nice soft ride. The original Exige shocks and springs are included in the sale.

TRD clutch, same clutch the Exige cup cars use. Strong enough for future supercharging if you want to.

Lotus accusump. No turning it off and on, it's just there.

Milled front A-Arms

Steel braided brake lines, front and rear

Sparco 6 point harness's installed for driver and passenger. Stock three points remain in place for the street.

Lotus harness bar

Sector 111 RTD Brace

Sector 111front and rear tow hooks

Sector 111 fire extinguisher

Sector 111micro mirror

Sector 111 trunk organizer

Sector 111 form fit indoor car cover

Sector 111 Lotus Leather Luggage set

Multivex mirrors w/spare

shaped adhesive tape for lower panels ( to protect paint while on track instead of blue tape)


I love my Lotus but I just don't get to the track enough to justify using it as my daily driver. I work for Subaru and have access to all the performance goodies, so I'm going to buy an STI. It won't be as good on the track but it should be a more practical daily driver.
Anyway there it is, what IMHO, is one of the best n/a Exiges in the country $36,500.

Spare package available:

1 set, black Exige wheels w/ Hoosier R6's mounted, 300 track miles on them. I guess that's about 50% used up. I don't really know as I never ran Hoosiers on this car before.

1 set, front and rear, of shaved R888's (new)

1 set of front only Yokohama 048's (new)

1 set porterfield R4 brake pads F&R (new)

! set Pagid brake pads F&R (new)

Please understand spares are for not sale at this time. I would like to give the buyer of my car first option.

Another good word for this car....

I've seen Mark's car firsthand and driven it ... this car is perfect. :clap: Drives and looks fantastic and has been well maintained. The JRZ coil overs are simply amazing and truly transformed an already great handling car into something quite special.

If you're looking for a "previously owned" Exige that has been pampered and has many upgrades, this is the car for you -- it gets my "seal of approval". :up:
