With much anticipation, the Lotus Elise, after clearing many federal regulation obstacles, was finally introduced to the US market. The proven concept that less weight equals more performance was the base line design of the Elise. These cars were all hand assembled and integrated some of the most advance lightweight technology including the Lotus designed epoxy bonded aluminum light weight chassis, light weight steel rear sub-frame and a RTM composite body. All said and done, these cars moved a mere 10 pounds for every horse power provided by a stout Toyota 1.8 liter inline 4 cylinder engine producing 190 hp. Further maximization of horsepower is assisted by Four-wheel independent suspension, Bilstein mono-tube gas dampers, Eibach coaxial coil springs and front anti-sway bar, and 6-speed synchromesh gearbox. The brakes consist of 4-wheel ventilated cross drilled brakes with squeezed by Lotus/AP Racing and Brembo Calipers. These cars are weightless and agile, still producing impressive 0-60 times of 5.1 seconds and setting seemingly effortless record speeds in the 600-ft slalom.

In 2008, Lotus built 50 “California” optioned cars for the US market, 25 in Ardent Red, and 25 in Saffron Yellow. The one owner, 2008 Lotus Elise California Saffron Yellow offered here remains outstanding and virtually new as it has driven and cared for just 4705 miles since new and never tracked. The “California” optioned cars were more highly optioned to appeal to “the lifestyle market” and also to showcase Lotus' aptitude for customization. While known for being spartanly optioned vehicles, the “California” equipped vehicles included an upgraded grill, body colored side air inlets, upgraded wheels, light two-tone leather interior, removable colored hard top, Alpine sound system and a larger rear spoiler all for just $5500.00 dollars on top of its normal MSRP. The car comes complete with original window sticker, driver handbook, tool kit, both hard and soft tops, all “California” options as mentioned, “Star Shield” and a perfect CARFAX.

With outstanding agility, feel and feedback, The Lotus Elise has the uncanny ability to make the car become a direct extension of the driver who pilots it. For this reason these cars hold value and remain on the bucket list of driver enthusiasts worldwide. Limited edition cars such as the “California” will always be in demand is an opportunity when presented for acquisition.
