It's not allowed in Canada either (it sounds like it is even harder to get one snuck into Canada). If you don't intend to drive it on the street, you can import any car into the US as a "show car" - limited to off road use only.Want it for collecter car only. prob. get it in through canada(know some people).
Generally this "show car" clause is a misnomer. For the race car clause, you have to provide the documentation of the series that it is to be used for. You also have to convice someone or attest to the fact that you couldn't easily convert the car for road use.... So, very unlikely that a road-ready 2004 111s getting in legally until... 2029.It's not allowed in Canada either (it sounds like it is even harder to get one snuck into Canada).

Looney has pretty much nailed it!how about a comprehensive list
Front Access Panels
Rear Exhaust outlet panel
Rover K series engine
different rear sub frame
different rear wheel offsets (because of the sub frame)
No ABS or power assistance on the brakes (much better than the early toyota cars in feel though)
different clams (the Fed cars have those horrible DRL's)
Different steering wheel (111S didnt have airbags)
Different Guage Stack (front iluminated, not rear)
thats all i could think of for now
and for the record, the car pictured above is not a 111S, that just a normal K Series Elise
The key difference is the engine and lack of abs and airbags.I got a line on a cheap 111s out of england and was wondering if there is any difference between it and the standard federal elise. Body wise only difference I mean. Its missing its top and was wondering if our tops fit them.
