Current BaT Auctions
This 2005 Lotus Elise remained registered in California with a single owner until it was acquired by the selling dealer on BaT in December 2021, and it now has 5,500 miles. The car is powered by a 1.8-liter inline-four paired with a six-speed manual transaxle and is finished in Ardent Red over red leather. Equipment includes the Touring Package, 16″ and 17″ eight-spoke alloy wheels, a removable soft top, a CD stereo, and air conditioning. Work performed during current ownership included paint correction and replacing the tires. This Elise is now offered in Texas by the selling dealer with the owner’s manual, service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The car is finished in Ardent Red and features a thermal- and noise-insulated removable soft top, dual exhaust outlets, and a rear spoiler. Paint correction was performed following the selling dealer’s acquisition.
The eight-spoke alloy wheels measure 16″ in diameter up front and 17″ out back, and Yokohama Advan Neova AD07 tires measuring 175/55 up front and 225/45 out back were installed in January 2022, and an alignment was performed at that time. Braking is provided by Lotus-branded AP Racing calipers up front and Brembo calipers out back over ventilated and cross-drilled rotors at all four corners. The brake fluid was reportedly replaced in February 2021.
The seats are trimmed in red leather, and interior equipment includes a CD stereo, power windows, a storage net, additional sound deadening, and air conditioning.
The leather-wrapped MOMO steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer, 10k-rpm tachometer, and a digital display. The digital odometer indicates 5,500 miles, approximately 50 of which were added during current ownership.
The transverse 1.8-liter 2ZZ-GE inline-four was sourced from Toyota and was factory rated at 190 horsepower and 133 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transaxle. An oil change and coolant flush were performed in February 2021.
