Well the crap is hitting the fan as far as the Dollar goes. The current exchange rate is $1.90 to 1 Pound Sterling.
I just don't see how Lotus will be able to sell these cars at the current base price for very long.

Consider the following:

At the current exchange rate the Euro 111R that has a base price of £31K would sell for $58k. Now consider this, the US car’s base price is $39,985 that is only £20,792.2. That means the US car is by far the cheapest Elise available anywhere.

It just doesn’t make sense for them to sell at this ultra low price long term without a price increase. I know many people would not pay more for this car, but I also know many people would. This news may suck but it is beyond our control.
