Isn't this 3 year old news when GTE was introduced at pebble beach
Because that body would need crash testing for US market. They could sell them for off road use only.If that's the case I wonder why they dont just "downgrade" the engine to S so they pass all emissions to sell off the GTE body kits. Just seems like a waste. Even sell the body kits off them I'll take one.
They did not use the Cosworth 4L NA but rather a 3.5L SC if my memory is correct. They were not at all the GT4 car. The day I had a factory tour back in 2011 a street GTE was running on the track, as was the 1st production line Exige S V6 a few days later.Nothing about the cars was legal. I believe they were mockups without the sequential transmissions or Cosworth Tuned engines anyways, heard conflicting stories... If I were to guess, the centerlock wheels, and the body kits are the parts that aren't legal, but it probably mostly has something to do with incorrect type approvals.. So probably a paperwork impossibility.
A friend asked Lotus if they would sell one, while he was looking at them at the factory, even just for track use, and they said they can't.
