Car Catcher: A Single-Owner, One-of-50 Lotus Elise Type 72D Special Edition

Sponsored article presented by Wire Wheel Classic Sports Cars.


What's the best way to celebrate the 35th anniversary of beating your opponents? If you're Lotus, you build 50 limited edition Lotus Elises.

This 2007 Lotus Elise Type 72D Special Edition is one such car. Said to be number five of 50 made worldwide (and one of 20 imported into the United States), this Elise pays tribute to the 35th anniversary of the Lotus 72's domination of the 1972 Formula 1 championship.

Exclusive features on the special edition include gold wheels and pinstriping on the exterior, with a gold and tan-appointed interior.

Offered by Wire Wheel Classic Sports Cars for $42,900, this 72D is said to be a single-owner car with only 15,250 miles on the odometer. 

Powered by the same engine found in regular model Elises, this Elise also comes equipped with the Sport and Touring Packages.

Included in the sale are a certificate of authenticity and a unique Type 72D open-face helmet.

Insuring your classic car investment may cost less than you think. Learn more.
