Yeah this is a really bizarre move from Lotus ... why did they bother making the car if they can't sell it to the US street market? Does the Evora include "smart airbags" or does that car have an exemption also? Gotta hope it was more than just "smart airbags".
100K for a track only car is a hard sell, too many faster track only vehicles for 30-40K less.
