This exhilarating Elise is a two-owner car whose 1st had for just a few months and less than 1k miles, while the 2nd owner has lovingly cared for it for the last 13 years. With the 111-series Elise models having been phased out in 2011 and the current range unavailable in the USA, well-kept examples like this are in high demand and don't remain available long. This is an incredible opportunity to put a extremely well-presented Elise in your garage at a great price point. Don't miss out. This Elise has just completed a rigorous pre-sale inspection at our Lotus of Bellevue Factory Authorized Service Center.From the moment you swing open the composite door and drop into the leather-trimmed aluminum cockpit, there's no mistaking the Elise for anything but a no-nonsense lightweight sports car. Other than 21st-century necessities like dual airbags, air-conditioning, and a CD player, there's nothing extraneous inside the cabin. The dashboard, pedals, and shift knob are all crafted out of aluminum. The steering wheel is small and purposeful, the seats are lightly upholstered one-piece composite shells with fore-aft adjustment for the driver only. Carpeting covers select areas of the interior; everywhere else the exposed aluminum chassis proudly shows through.Extensive use of aluminum allows the Elise to achieve its extreme light weight without sacrificing rigidity. This is most apparent in the cockpit where the extruded aluminum chassis makes no secret of its presence, joined by race-inspired billet pedals and a drilled-out foot stop on the passenger side. Tipping the scales at a gravity-defying 1,950 lbs., the diminutive Elise remains faithful to the Hethel company's less-is-more school of vehicle production. Like the famous Seven and the Elan, lightweight roadsters that helped put Lotus road cars on the map, the Elise is built around the same concept of joining an exceptionally light and, nimble chassis to a flexible and responsive 4-cylinder engine. With so little mass to haul around, the Elise doesn't need a ton of horsepower to go fast, huge brakes to slow down or massive wheels and tires to handle well.For more information, or to discuss making delivery arrangements for adding this fantastic 2005 Lotus Elise with extremely low miles to your collection, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants or feel free to drop by our 5-acre Bellevue, WA facility - Home to the West Coast's Most Exciting Inventory of Luxury, Exotic, Sports and Collectible Cars - With 200+ Always on Site, Nobody Has What We Have!
