As one of only two colour options available on the Sports Racer, the gorgeous Nightfall Blue paintwork is complemented by twin painted stripes running the length of the vehicle. The bodywork is in excellent condition throughout having been protected from new by clear film to the front end, sills, rear arches, etc.

On close inspection there are few imperfections to note. There is a very fine crack in the paint on the rear lid, but otherwise the paintwork remains in brilliant order boasting a beautifully deep and glossy shine all over. Furthermore, both the removable hardtop and soft-top remain in perfect unmarked condition.
The diminutive cabin still feels fresh and is free from any of the usual major scuffing. Being one of just 100 UK Sports Racers, the ProBax seats are upholstered in perforated black leather with special blue stitching; ‘Elise' is also stitched into the headrests. The leather itself remains in excellent, unworn condition and the alcantara atop the dash is equally unmarked.

Looking further you'll notice how all the plastic components are in very good condition, with only the lightest of wear to the passenger entry sill cover; the driver's side has just been replaced and so presents as new. The car is equipped with air conditioning and traction control, and retains its original carpet mats.
Being a 111R, the Sports Racer's VVT-i engine produces 189hp, launching it from 0-60 in little over five seconds. Lifting the delicate rear hatch shows the engine compartment to be extremely well kept. Having resided indoors for most of its life the car has seldom seen rain; as such there is little or no corrosion to any of the metallic components.
The Lotus sits on the correct set of ultra lightweight forged rims with a dark chrome finish. 16-inch at the front, and 17-inch at the rear, the alloys are shod in a recent set of Yokohama Advan Neova tyres with plenty of tread remaining. The wheels have just been refurbished to the highest standard and now present absolutely as new; they have also been treated to new centre caps all round.
The Lotus was registered to its one and only keeper on 25th March 2006; it was supplied new by Castle Lotus in Essex. Since that time the car has covered little over 23k miles, remaining garaged when not in use. Present in the history file is the dealer-supplied document pack complete with the driver's manual and service booklet. The service history is as follows:
