2005 Lotus Elise Touring SC
Locally Owned / Full Garage Kept / Mint Condition!
All scheduled maintenance has been completed including full synthetic oil changes every 5000 miles. Factory recalls and all Lotus specific maintenance have been completed by authorized Lotus dealers, some oil changes and a full brake job including rotors and pads were done by my local Toyota dealer. The Elise has a Toyota drive train, so simple maintenance can be safely done by a Toyota dealer if you do not live near a Lotus dealer.
This Elise was delivered with the Touring package which includes upgraded noise dampening, power windows, and an upgraded Blaupunkt Stereo system with CD player. It also had factory Starshield on the front bumper and part of the hood, and on the rocker panels. I have removed the front Starshield to show that the paint underneath is perfect. I would recommend the new owner have it installed again. This Elise comes with a factory alarm system that includes an interior motion detector, and it also comes with an extra key and extra wireless entry FOB. The face plate of the stereo system is removable.
SUPERCHARGER. This Elise includes a Sector 111 Katana Supercharger. I realize that certain aftermarket performance upgrades can either be welcome or a source of worry. The Katana Supercharger is the most sorted and tested aftermarket supercharger available for the Elise. It uses the same hardware as the Lotus factory supercharger, and the boost provided does not exceed factory boost settings on other Elise/Exige versions. The Supercharger was installed by Euro Classics, in Midlothian VA, a Lotus dealer and authorized installer for Sector 111. The Katana supercharger increases the horsepower from 190 BHP to 240 BHP and reduces the 0-60 MPH time from the factory 4.7 seconds to 4.0 seconds, while smoothing the power delivery and widening the RPM range where the second cam setting comes into effect. In short, I carefully researched all of the available performance upgrades to the Elise and the Katana system is the most reliable and safest aftermarket install available. The Supercharger was installed when the car had 15K miles and has been absolutely trouble free from that moment. The upgrade cost $7000.00 including the cost of install. It transforms the car from a great car to a fantastic one. There is nothing in the world that corners like an Elise, and with this upgrade the straights are just as fun. I have all of the parts that were removed from the car when the install was done and they will be included with the purchase, in case someone would like to set the car back to stock. I can't imagine why you would want to, but you can.
I also installed Lotus OEM driving lights on this Elise, which work in conjunction with the high beams to greatly increase night driving visibility, and I had the AC thermostat upgraded from analog to digital, a Lotus OEM upgrade. Other than the Supercharger and the upgrades listed here, the car is 100% factory.
This Elise has almost new Yokohama tires on all four corners (these are the same model tires the car was shipped with), and has had a recent battery replacement.
