2006 Lotus Elise Race Car – For Sale at $32,000

This 2006 Elise race car has a long history in Lotus Cup and would also make an excellent track day toy.

First raced by Brent Bowman as “Saffron” in 2012-13 Lotus Cup, it was later raced by Gary Bone as “Snow White” in 2014-15. SP Motorsports bought the car in late 2016, and rebuilt the car inside and out to improve performance, reliability and appearance. It is now available for  track days in 2019.
