I'm not sure where to find invoice pricing BUT I did see the invoice price on my 2009 Elise "purist" Retail was $46/47k and invoice was around $41k. They showed me the invoice also.

Try googling it.

2009 Lotus Elise White
2008 Nissan Titan--2002 MBZ S430
2008 Aprilia Tuono--2010 Harley Road King

Interesting. I know all the "regular" car dealerships throw the invoice out like candy, but I just figured Lotus & other high-end sales dealerships would just refuse to show it.

Invoice price makes it easier to deal with stealerships... bmw, porsche, etc lots of other high end manufacturers... it's not hard to find if you dig a little on their forums..
I did it for buying S240 two years ago but I can't find any info now.. hmm

O.k.,- invoice, isn't it something like 10 to 20% of MSRP subtracted
Most don't want you to know so you don't work them.

10-20 % off MSRP. That was the good ole days. Now its typically 5-7% and I saw the invoice on my X5 when I bought it! End of year, 0.9% financing, here's the invoice, here's our profit, interested? It was quite easy to decide.

As a former dealer rep I wont get into too much detail here but I will say that Lotus is a very small company importing very few cars. They do not have "hold back" or other dealer incentives like the larger brands do. You can not expect to roll into a Lotus franchise and buy a car at invoice like you can at a Honda or Ford dealer.

This site can help to shed some light on the car purchasing experience (you'll have to filter out some of the advert BS though).

New car buying guide, how to buy new cars, avoid dealer scams when you buy a car

However, like stated before, Lotus probably doesn't fall into the "typical" car category, so a portion of the information will not apply.
