This is a beautiful clean Lotus Elan. It has new paint from a high level restoration paint shop specializing in
fiberglass. This car shows 27000 miles. I cant guarantee it but believe its true. The body was extremely
clean when stripped of paint. The engine had the head removed to fix an oil leak that happens from the ageing of a
rubber hose on the side of the engine that occurs on all twin cam lotuses. While we were in there we put in a new
water pump -- with the head being off. Brakes and steering area tie rod ends bushings and etc. replaced. The rubber
donut drive axle couplings which are part of the rear drive mechanism were replaced. New master cylinder and brake
cylinders rebuilt. New rear main engine seal replaced and while there the clutch was replaced. Top, wood dash, and
center console are also new. Seats seem good except for small cut in passenger seat that you have to look for.
Speedometer does run too fast and will need to be sent off for repair. Electrically I think everything works. This
car runs beautifully. It's fast and it handles amazing like a Lotus should.
The rubber donuts are new with restoration.
Tires are approximately 3 years old and are lower cost tires but have almost new tread.
99% sure frame is original. I do not have a full history of this car.
Leaks were fixed with rear main seal replacement and side engine hose. No other leaks are known.
Radiator was removed and cleaned and the car never over heats. Gas tank was cleaned and coated.

This car has never been driven in the rain while Ive owned it. The wipers work great but I've never paid any
attention to the washers.

Elise Time Attack could be most extreme Lotus yet

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 09:29:00 EST

The Lotus Elise has given birth to some seriously fast and varied machinery. Aside from Lotus' own models like the Exige, 2-Eleven, 340R and Europa, electric vehicles like the Tesla Roadster, not to mention the never-released Dodge Circuit and Detroit Electric SP:01, are all based on the Elise's platform. As were/are the Melkus RS 2000, the Opel Speedster/Vauxhall VX220 and the Hennessey Venom GT. But this could be the most extreme use of the lightweight chassis yet.
This Series 1 Elise has been built by one performance-obsessed Brit with a single purpose: to compete in the UK's Time Attack championship. For those unfamiliar, Time Attack is something like a rally or a hillclimb event, only it takes place on a racing circuit. Each vehicle goes out on the track by itself and sets the best time it can, without needing to worry about other competitors until the finish line is crossed and it's the next racer's turn. That's what drove Lee to modify his Lotus so thoroughly, with more wings, diffusers, flaps and carbon fiber than a Boeing factory. Check it out in the video below.

Lotus announces race-ready Exige V6 Cup and Cup R

Fri, 11 Jan 2013 14:14:00 EST

Lotus has pulled off the wraps on two new versions of the Exige: the V6 Cup and the V6 Cup R. Based on the Exige S, the V6 Cup is built to be a dual-purpose street and track machine. The 0-60 dash should take just under 3.8 seconds thanks to a full 345 horsepower from a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine. Weighing in at 2,380 pounds, the V6 Cup should be an absolute riot to drive, and with a full FIA-approved roll cage, fire extinguisher and six-point race harnesses on board, it's plenty safe, too. Two-way adjustable dampers are standard, as are AP Racing four-piston calipers on all four corners. More importantly, drivers can expect to find the Lotus Dynamic Performance Management system in the cockpit, complete with Touring, Sport and DPM Off modes.
The V6 Cup R, meanwhile, is both lighter and offers more horsepower than the standard V6 Cup. The same blown V6 dishes out 366 horsepower in R trim, and the whole contraption tips the scales at 2,292 pounds. Of course, the same spate of race hardware is stock, minus the DPM system. A lightweight battery, track-spec tow loops and quick-release engine cover help separate the Cup R from its more civil sibling, as do performance brake pads and better oil and water cooling systems.
Check out the brief press release below for more information. Both of the new models are headed for a debut at the 2013 Autosport International Show.

Lotus honors F1 efforts with limited-edition Exige LF1

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 07:58:00 EST

Lotus has announced a new, special edition of its hardcore Exige for customers in the UK and Europe. Limited to just 81 units (for the Lotus Formula One team's 81 victories), the new Exige LF1 is the ultimate accessory for fans of the British manufacturer's Formula One efforts.
Befitting of a car inspired by the Lotus E22, this particular Exige is finished in the team's traditional black and gold colors, complete with red accents inspired by the F1 racer. The exterior is further enhanced with unique badges that proclaim the LF1's limited-edition status. Matte gold wheels have also been fitted, just like this Lotus' big brother.
This isn't purely a paint-and-stickers job, though. Lotus has also touched up the cabin, offering up black leather and "technical fabric," complete with gold contrast stitching and piping. The seat backs and floor mats feature embroidered logos, while an individually numbered, carbon-fiber plaque sits on the LF1's dash.
