2009 ELISE 190 Just in @ St. Louis

Hi all...Our 1st 2009 Elise 190 literally just rolled off the tractor trailer here at Lotus St. Louis ~ Isotope Green with black, nicely optioned example. These photograph's are just quickies as the car is all dirty and dusty from the port..Still looks,err, bright though ! ...You'll need shades to look at this Elise once it's been detailed and all polished up !









I'll post up some better pictures after it's cleaned ! Oh ! and it's for sale

Cheers, Adrian ~ Lotus St. Louis ~

Are all new Elise/Exige coming with leather covered consoles?

Couple nice bicycles, way too many snow skis.

Except it has an ass-ugly bumper ;p

I don't like these bright colors with the same-colored hardtop at all.. I even think my Saffron Yellow with hardtop on looks like ****. The black softtop on there makes it all come together IMO. :

Not if you've been around these cars for awhile...

I noticed several differences right away

1) Much improved gauge cluster
2) Center console
3) Cupholder
4) Different (ugly) rear bumper treatment
5) LED taillights
6) Raised LOTUS lettering
7) Extra button on the center console (traction control?)
8) Seats

The floor mats are also different. I don't really think the bumper looks that bad. Especially if it is actually functional at all. I'd much rather have that bumper on my car if it would prevent a love tap from cracking my clam. 05 Models have no bumper at all.

When you do that new video, I hope you two will not explore what other body parts you two can touch while driving.
