Hi,

I'm french, and i have one elise MK2 111.

I don't now if you know that, but In france we have 3 models :

- 111 whith 122PS and 710kg
- 111S Whith 160PS and 757kg
- 111R whith 190PS and 868kg (model exported in america)

I'm very happy that you have lotus elise in america now :)
Why ? Beaucause the amrican poeple make a lot of tunning, and we can see the effect of tunning :)

Now, some pictures of my elise :)

Sorry for my english !

Nice car! I love the alcantara interior, it's too bad we can't get that in the US.

In france you can have leder oder alcantara for the same price but it's on option. Base price is 33000E, and your model (111R) is 44000E in FRANCE (55000 dollars)

In america the car have a better price, in good for you :) but for me :(

Welcome dubickini ! Nice ride!!! I really love the wheels/exhaust/interior of your car. Does anyone know the reason our U.S. exhaust got routed to the bottom?

To visually differentiate it from the 111 & 111S.

Dubikini, welcome to EliseTalk!

Just curious: From the (blank) license plate and dealer location, it looks like you bought it in Switzerland. Is that cheaper? Could you save taxes by buying it there and then bringing it over to France?

Welcome to the board!

The dual exhaust is just the way it should have stayed

In france there is not a lot of elise. In germany and switzerland there is more.

Wenn I buy in switzerland I must pay 19.6% taxe for france, beaucause switzerland is not europeen country.

My elise was chaepper that in france, the seller have the car whith leasing, and have problem to pay ! ;)
