The Lotus dealership in Costa Mesa (Newport Motorsport or whatever it's called) has that car, I believe. It's the mule that Tony Shute and crew drove around a bit while they were in town for the LA Auto Show in January, and that Clyde had driven around a bit prior to that. It has the Toyota powerplant / transmission, but a basic euro-style interior (i.e., the non-airbag steering wheel, etc.) So it's more like what a 111R would be than a federal car, although probably not nearly as well "sorted" because it was a pre-production car.

As of a few weeks ago, the dealer was not allowing test drives in the car, they said Lotus had told them they weren't permitted. So I was only able to look at, not drive, the car.
