Actually, that's the second one. I bought an S1 Exige back in '05 that required painting the body and placing the decals. Gave it as a gift to a special kid and while I loved the way the car came out, yours seems to be ready to go straight out the box. :up:

Yeah, actually when I think about it I'm pretty sure there are some electric R/C Exiges that were out there first.

It's good to see these on the market finally.

BTW, Lotus made a ton of money back in the '60's, during the slot car heyday, licensing their cars. The Lotus 30 was probably the most common slot car body of all in the larger scales, and there were tons of Lotus 29's, 38's, 40's, 25's, 23's and 33's in 1/32 and 1/24 scle. Others, such as Type 14 Elite and Lotus 19 were common, but not in as great a number.

Some of them are among the most collectible of vintage slots, a few fetching upwards of $1K in complete condition. Several worth several hundred dollars.
