I just had to take a step back to think about how far technology has come. Don't speak a language? No worries, post it into Google translate and you can communicate with basically anybody.

Beautiful car by the way

Interesting that the S240 in the US market uses the full mohawk roof, while at least in the Italian market the Sport S240 does not.

Lotus Elise Model Guide

S2 Exige 240R, 2005


Limited edition of 50 units produced as post registration official factory conversions of '05 Exige by the Lotus Sport workshops at Hethel, for U.K. and certain overseas territories (up to 40 sold in the EU, the remainder mainly in Japan). The car is not identifiable from the VIN coding. They are only available in Sport Yellow or Sport Black, and has a unique interior trim in black with Lotus Sport Yellow highlights in leather.
With a supercharged and intercooled engine producing over 240 hp and over 170 lbft of torque, the Lotus Sport Exige 240R reaches 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and 100 mph (160 km/h) in less than 10 seconds before topping out at 155 mph (249 km/h). At this top speed the advanced aerodynamics produce 113 kg of downforce. The total unladen weight is approximately 930 kg and the power to weight is approximately 261 hp / tonne (195 kW / tonne, 266 PS / tonne).
A unique numbered Lotus Sport build plate is fitted to the aluminium chassis member on the passenger side. The interior also includes sports seats, driver and passenger four-point harnesses which are fitted to a cross bar that is part of the motorsport specification T45 roll bar. New lightweight five spoke forged alloy wheels are of a slightly wider section to the standard Exige wheel to accommodate the optional extra track only specification slick tyres as well as the Yokohama A048 tyres, which come as standard. These wheels are painted in "Satin Black" for the Sport Yellow painted version of the Lotus Sport Exige 240R and "High Power Silver" for the Sport Black painted version. In addition to the powerful four-cylinder engine, the Lotus Sport Exige 240R also includes specially developed Lotus Sport parts including upgraded brakes, stiffer springs and 2-way adjustable Ohlins dampers with ride height adjustment, an adjustable front anti-roll bar, twin oil coolers and an Accusump.

The article he posted says it's an 05 (euro version obviously) that was converted into a limited run.
