thank you Felix7.


you know Randy, I am liking CO more and more also. I don't like bright colors, but on this car, it's part of its character, i think.

Too bad! I hear all the CO orders for this year are full. They have met their limit and no other cars other than those already on order will be able to be painted CO.

Thanks for the photos, loving them.

how did you find this out? how can this be true? Seems kind of odd that they would put a cap on the number of cars for a specific color.

I think because Lotus does not have a GT / super car replacement for the Esprit, Lotus is making the touring pack optional and might be marketing it as more of a street car suitable for the track.

Also they have a motorsport ver with "accusump" ? oil pump for high g's that is track focused. If you http://www.exiges.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php many opine that the S1 ver was more focused.

That and the great speculation over when / if a SC version will come out.

OIC, I was just surprised to read his comments along those lines when we've decided that LSS is for an Elise that does more than a few days of track duty/year. I've considered Exige another step above LSS.
