Here is a Flickr pool of photos -more tomorrow.

She has 47k, has been to the HPDE with me twice, but no real track time, as I am a beginner and baby her.

This car is unique with what is not commonly found on a 2005 Lotus Elise from the factory: LSD with Traction Control. I’m the 3rd owner, original owner claims to have only had service done at the Lotus dealer. 2nd owner serviced the vehicle himself -which included a new air filter, new NGK plugs, oil changes (time not mileage), etc. I used Stewart's Auto here in Sacramento (well known, excellent exotic mechanic).

To meet homologation rules, a certain number of 2005 Elise’s needed to have LSD and Traction control. They added these to the last few 2005 Elise’s built. By pressing a button, you can disable the T/C.

2005 Lotus Elise Lotus Racing Green (LRG)
Biscuit leather interior
Soft top only
Limited Slip Differential (LSD)
Traction Control (T/C)
Touring Package and LSS Package
Starshield clear bra
Factory Lotus Driving Lights

Aftermarket:
SSR Wheels with Lotus center caps
Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 tires
Dunlop direzza Star Spec (rear)
Larini Sports Exhaust – SE Style
Sector111 ReVerie Carbon Fiber 3 piece diffuser
1/4 turn kit (Diffuser only)
Sector111 Micro mirror
Diamond Audio speakers (drop in replacements)
Upgraded Blaupunkt CD/MP3/WAV player
Tall rails (Driver only)
SubStiffie
RTD Brace
Race Battery and mount (RLS/NCI)
Battery disconnect switch
Harness bar and seat mod, with 6 point Shroth
Convex mirrors
SSC Shifter cable and cross cable (makes a big difference in shifting feel)
New front rotors and pads (EBC Orange), high temp brake fluid (Blue Stuff)
new alternator 2k miles ago
Front tow hook
Front License plate holder
S111 rear delete
GPan,
TransElixer
Manly Motor mount inserts
there's more, I'm sure...:shift:


The car has a Clean title and clean CarFax report.

She has tons of extras!

I have all the parts from the rear delete, the stock driver's seat sliding rails, battery box, exhaust (I found it yesterday) and the stock oil pan. I do not have the stock diffuser, stereo or the wheels/tires.

I have driven her almost 10K in 20 months and have loved every minute of it. If you know these cars, you know this set up is dependable and very close to perfect. I did most of the mods within a few months after I bought the car and have not changed anything for over a year. She is beautiful and balanced.

Pending move out of the country forces sale.

She is bank owned/financed (PenFed) -so will be Bill of Sale, with the title to you from my bank within a few days.

Sad day for me, lucky day for you!

Also remembered: front splitter (Sweet! the one from LT) and two faults: one small ding in the front driver's side (rock, clear vinyl is intact -but paint underneath is minor damage and minor damage to one of the fins of the diffusor -ran over a stick). Both small things and not visisble looking at the car, but wanted to let everyone know.

Many interested LT members, but she's still for sale. I would like to sell her here, if possible!

PM sent :)

Few questions thought:

Is it a square setup you have? I read 225 on the front wheels I believe.
- Does it have the original radiator? Any issue with engine temp?
- Is Starshield still on the car under the black vinyl?
- If not there originally was the second oil cooler installed? Was the recall on oil cooler line done?
- Any issue with the toe link?
- Was the clutch changed? Rotors? Belts?

Thanks!

I am guessing you sold your car already? I've been looking for a LRG Elise for a while now with tan interior.
