Sport Package, Touring Package, Limited Slip Differential. Chrome Orange over black. 77k on chassis, 12k on new, built engine. Hard top, soft top. 15-20k invested in Nitron coilovers, BOE Clam Hinge, Larini exhaust, tucked harness, carbon fiber door panels/sills, and tons of little things correcting Lotus' design errors (toe links, cams, oil, A/C, etc). Everything done the right way. Garage kept, runs like a top. This is the one you want.


UPGRADE LIST

o Nitron adjustable coil overs with Eibach racing springs (smoother ride than stock/better response)
o Black Watch Racing Adjustable Sway Bars
o Black Watch Racing High Strength Racing Toe Links (solves a known weak link)
o Custom track/street alignment (very responsive but increased front inner shoulder wear; easily reversed)
o Disk Brakes Australia (DBA) slotted Kangaroo Paw Rotors – Cryo Treated (handle heat extremely well)
o Ferrodo DS 2500 racing pads (good dual purpose pads, some street noise occasionally)
o Goodridge stainless steel braided brake hoses
o Toyo Proxes R1R tires in December 2018 (about 3,000 miles on them)
o Difflow 5 element Railer Jr Squared rear diffuser (original included)
o BOE Fabrication Aluminum Radiator (solves a known issue of brittle plastic tank sides)

o Oil cooler lines recall has been completed
o Larani Polished exhaust (dual tips, 10 pounds lighter than stock, less drone)
o Sector 111 V-Shock Harness Bar
o Scroth 5 point harness (factory belts in place; the harness can just tuck behind the seat if not desired)
o Black and silver nose badge, and wheel emblems (great look on the Orange)
o Black Lotus lettering on rear

DRIVETRAIN LIST
o Brand new motor completed in late 2016 (65,980 miles) after catastrophic oiling failure killed the first engine
o Brand new Toyota short block shipped in from Japan
o Lotus JCR Head
o Monkey Wrench Racing Oil Pump
o Black Watch Racing ACT HD SS Clutch with a lightweight flywheel (great holding power and quick revs but still street friendly; also new slave cylinder and remote bleeder)

OTHER LIST
o Rebuilt and Re-engineered Air Conditioning system (2018 – 73,000 miles) – The AC is ice cold and can now keep up with hot/humid weather

o Removed floor vent covering for better air flow (original cover has been saved)
o Fully tinted all glass to improve operating efficiencies (even windshield – but high quality 3m that is barely visible and has never caused an inspection issue)
