New Elise owner looking for some help

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Im a new Elise owner here in Melbourne having just purchased a 2004 111 and im looking for someone who may have some knowledge on the particular car I have purchased.

From what I have been able to understand the 111 I have purchased was brought into Australia for a race series that apparently did not eventuate, the cars were in a form of race spec and were either sold or placed into storage, with the the unit I have purchased and few others placed into storage. After a while they were brought out and made road legal and sold off.

Would anyone here abouts be able to help me understand this story a little better?

Im also hoping to understand what the actual specifications of this car would be? Im assuming it's a K series, but thats where my knowledge stops!

Thanks all

Have you tried the Aussie Elise's forum Mark, reckon you'll find your answer there. :-)

Not picking the car up until Saturday but will post some pics after then.

Have fun collecting the car. I remember well picking mine up some 15 years ago. Great day.

very interestingly i have just done a check of the compliance plate and searched the VIN and appears the car is actually an R model with the VVT-i engine!
