Everyone (Lotus included) is showing pictures of the new limited edition Sprint in Yellow. I just found this car on a local dealer's site in the alternative colour. I didn't care for the yellow over much, but I think I actually quite like this one!

It reminds me of when I was a kid trying to double color dip Easter eggs. They never looked quite right either.

Found this on a google image seach for elan sprint. Forza 2, fun game. I remeber playing that game and doing quite well with the Elan.

I think you can get the best power to weight ratio of any car with the Elan in Forza 1/2. Simply swap in the 2ZZ and all the mods. 600+ hp IIRC.

Color/trim aside, is there anything different with these cars?
Nope. From the brochure:

"Lotus Cars has taken one of the most recognisable and iconic colour
schemes from the early 1970’s and reintroduced it for the first time with
the limited edition Exige Sprint.
Just 40 right hand drive Lotus Exige Sprints will go on sale in the UK in
the duo-tone paint schemes of Solar Yellow and Persian Blue.
To celebrate the start of Lotus production at Hethel in 1967, the 40 cars
will be built with an individually numbered chassis year build plate
covering 1967 to 2007, all except for 1982, the year of Colin Chapman’s
untimely and tragic death. Each car will also be sold with a Heritage
Pack containing a unique certificate signed by Lotus ‘Chief Executive’
Michael J Kimberley and the ‘Lotus Book’ written by William Taylor
featuring in depth reviews of production at Hethel. The Sprint also
features a unique interior trim with distinctive embroidery and exterior decals.

Even without the unique paint and trim features that the Exige Sprint
benefits from, equipping a standard Lotus Exige S to the same
specification would cost a customer £44,050 (MRSP), so the £42,550
(MRSP) for the Exige Sprint provides superb value for performance.
