2005 Lotus Elise

This 2005 “Nightfall Blue Metallic” Elise is an early car from the US production run, remaining in its original owner’s large collection until early 2017. With only 16,000 miles on the odometer it is a pristine, like-new example featuring the desirable Touring Package. Both the soft top and hardtop are intact, each with their carrying cases, while documentation from new reflects fastidious maintenance and careful ownership.

With no accidents and only minor wear, the car’s exterior is entirely original and in excellent shape. The paint still presents with a deep shine, while the factory Star Shield paint protection film is intact throughout. There is a small scuff and crack at the extreme lower edges of the front clam, a common area for wear, but fortunately a front plate holder has protected the vulnerable center bit. Glass, plastics, and rubber are all fresh, while the beautiful Lotus alloy wheels present similarly well, with the exception of a small paint chip on one of the rears.

Inside, the stunning tan leather sports seats are comfortable and stylish, complemented by matching door cards. The leather has held up well, thanks to Lotus putting wear patches on the edges of the bolsters, though beneath the driver’s door handle a small scuff is present. The Touring Package carpets are present and look new, as does the dash, Blaupunkt Acapulco radio, and aluminum trim. A flawless gauge cluster, tight headliner on the hardtop, and tidy dash complete the picture. Additionally, the cabin features power windows, working A/C, and a handy mesh pocket between the seats.

Over the last year the car has proven to be extremely reliable and mechanically sound. A recent oil change, new set of OEM-spec Yokohama Advan tires, new front rotors, and an alignment have further perfected the driving experience, with upgraded Ferrodo brake pads and BOE Fabrication rear toe links contributing as well. Everything feels tight and dialed in, while an absence of squeaks and rattles sets this Elise apart from higher mileage examples.
