What is funny to me is that they put a big goofy air bag cover on the 2010 Exige 260 for Europe/UK (I don't know about the US 240) but this still has the same air bag cover we have had.

:confused:

The Club S appears to have an airbag.

The S260 Cup does not have an airbag... instead it has something mushy and soft to cram your nogging into.

You are probably right about the S260 not having an airbag. There is no mention of it in the press release. I am comparing with my US 260 which does have an airbag.

The first time I saw this steering wheel was about a month ago on another forum members 260 that was just delivered to Greece. He probably didn't have an airbag. However until that one, all other UK and European Exiges - with or without an airbag and the Momo wheel - got the exact same cover we have - like the one pictured on the Elise Club Racer.

So like you said, this may be a new thing with non air bag cars.

Those AD07 tires look different on the Elise Club Racer. Advan Neova? I have only had the AD08's - is this the same as standard Elise tires or are these different?
