It actually doesn't look as destroyed as I thought it would have, granted I have no idea what the extent of the damage below the skin is.

According to the book "Lotus Elise the Complete Story" the car can withstand considerable front end damage that will only require the front clam shell to be replaced or the clam shell and crush sturcture which bolts in.

I doubt the 48's work well in colder conditions away from the track.

Also - while it may only require replacing the front clam - price one out - not very cheap! This one also has to replace the headlight and the front grill details - I would imagine this repair would run several thousand dollars - $3-5K probably.
