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 both Lotus Cup racing and track days in 2018.
