Abe, how many Purists were built? Two of the the three choices were existing Elise colors, but the third, Monaco White was not a current series color (though it was used on previous Lotus models).

That has the same options as the one that was for sale in WV (originally Derklbert in Michigan) a few months ago. Is that the same one?

SJW, I love your exige! It's the first AG exige I've seen, it really holds the color well.

What about laser blue? I have a LB elise in 2005 and have seen one or two of them online. The owner told me it was not a standard color in the US in 2005 but was in Europe only?

I have a feeling this may be a little off but it does seem fairly rare and I love the color.

2005 Lotus Elise - Laser Blue - SOLD
2005 Lamborghini Gallardo - Weekend Car
2010 Ferrari California
2016 BMW X5M - Wifemobile
2014 Ram 1500 Limited - Tow Vehicle

I have the ULTRA RARE saffron yellow color. I think I am the only 1 located within 1 mile of my home!

Still one of my absolute favorite colors on this car! Despite there being so many of them.

If you're buying a new Evora, I can't imagine them saying no to such a thing. It's a bit disappointing that there isn't any crazy colors available on the Evora.

That one is mine. The back end flipped out on me when the roads were slick, and I didn't have room to catch it. Only doing 30MPH or so. No injuries though!!
