I like the new sport pack wheels. They are lighter, right? That makes it all worth it

Be an alpha male. Drive a Lotus.

You're right, the cali interior would be difficult to live with as a daily driver.
The rep sez they will make only 50 California Elises!
Collectors, start the bidding.
The 211 is not too bad when you see it first hand.
I also like the club racer. I'm not sure about the sky blue color, though.
The rep sez there will only 20 club racers.
Again, collectors start the bidding.

I wanted to ask if Lotus would install the SC os a retrofit in '05, '06, and '07 Elises, but I was overwhelmed with the Elises and Exiges around me.

I'm off the cross now. Whew. Thanks for straightening me out, maz. I feel a lot better.

Thanks for the pics.
I like the new sport wheels; they work well with the egg-crate grills and freshen up the design a bit.
Will Lotus keep cranking out the special editions? Could be a good move. I wouldn't mind seeing a JPS Cup car, but that's probably too similar to the 72D.

I know this is a super old post, but I just ran across it today. I now own the exact Club Racer that is shown in the pictures from the LA Auto Show (first of the 20). It's my absolute favorite version of the Exige. OP, thanks for uploading the pics!

Beautiful, congrats! I love everything about the club racer. Perhaps most of all is the Hethel track detailing on the interior.

I've had a lot of folks ask what the track outline is. Many call it "the fat guy smoking a cigar."

Just as an addition to this post, we sold a Yellow and a Red California Edition back in the day. I received an e-mail from a collector in Romania saying he traced his Red California to the original dealership, us! Checked photos and VIN and his is right. You never know

Yes, but it's a track only car. There are no street legal S3's in the USA.
