It’s a 2011, one owner (till me) 11,000 miles, perfect condition (zero wear in interior!!! ). I have found Lotus owners are overall much more laid back, more helpful and friendlier than many Ferrari owners. And I drive my cars ( I believe, not driving your exotic car is like saving your girlfriend for her next boyfriend!!!) lol
