Cool! Anyone know where we can find pics of this or more info from lotus online? I did a quick search in the "new car specs" forum and didn't see anything... thanks!

Even though it is mostly cosmetic with the exception of the track pack, if you add up everything included and compare to the MSRP it actually seems like a pretty good deal...if I didnt already have a car on order, I would pick up a yellow one :)

So what's next, a limited edition to celebrate the 100th limited edition model to come out of Lotus this year? :)

These special editions have been Lotus' bread and butter for decades, and through many models. Kinda sad, but for a company that cannot afford a whole new product line with regularity, it does generate some nominal interest and draws out the lifespan of a model.

This 60th anniversary cars would have been a good deal if they throw in like lifestyle color. to be honest, for a lotus, grey doesn't cut it. i understand the green due to tradition. black (maybe if it's all black), yellow (too many yellow this and that, the elise sport is same yellow). if they offer like orange, or laser blue or even that shiny green (if you see the brochure, first i thought it's the shiny green, but further read reveals it's BRG).

Clarifications

Dan,

Some clarifications.

1. Lots of people have ordered. As of May 25, enitre pool of 40 available was down to only 2 spots remaining.

2. Your car will likely not be 1 of 40. Production this time is going to be different than with past special editions. Production order will be by color and regional batches, not by order of purchase.

3. Features on this car that cannot be bought any other way (other than after market): stripes will be painted, not vinyl decals; track pack will include the adjustable sport suspension (like the exige s), whereas regular elise sc sport package only is a fixed sport suspension; color trimmed seats and door panels; a048 tires with 195's in front (rest of elise sc's are just ad07's with only 175's in front); anniversary emblems in seat headrests and special floor mats; and seven spoke black (silver if black car color) forged alloy wheels (same wheels as on exige s).

4. Essentially, this car is set up identically to how the exige s is configured.

5. Price of vehicle adds up such that you are getting the a048 tires (with 195's in front), track pack (harness bar and adjustable sport suspension), seven spoke black/silver forged wheels, color inserts in seats and doors, special floor mats, painted stripes, and the fact of limited edition -- all for free. If you pick the black or storm titanium car color options, then you are getting the upgraded paint color for free, too, as lotus otherwise charges more for these colors.

Hope that helps.

Check with your lotus agent if you doubt any of the above.

Hope that helps.
Not sure where this is coming from. :shrug: But, thank you.

Dont think it was what you said, but it came across with an attitude that apparently more than one of us didnt quite catch the story behind....
