When I saw it, it had the CF body work already on it. It was waiting to be finished and detailed for sale. I have sat in a brand new one that had the full drivers cage. They are sweet cars and would like to own one except for the open cockpit design. Not that I don't like open cockpits, just that I also like driving in the rain. Therefore, I purchased an Exige V6 Cup-R.
Lucky you! I'm jealous but happy at the same time with my Elise. I've always liked doing more with less from preferring to race 125CC vs my 250 and open class bikes and now to the Elise. Besides as Clint Eastwood said "A man has to know his limitations" and I have plenty lol
