What is the name of the sticker with the E and a little swirl thing above it. Where can I get one of these. I did a search and could not find any info. I see this sticker on the side of cars on the roll bar cover. I think I remeber it being a award by the queen or something. Any info would be great.

Not sure that award ever went to the Exige. I think it was an award for excellence in design -- for the Elise.

In a recent interview in Her Majesty magazine, the queen said "I've never much cared for the Lotus Exige. I find it very awkward and I tend to bump the Royal Crown when getting in and out."

In other news, she mentioned that she's recently given the newly created "Princess Diana Memorial Award" to Mercedes-Benz for their work in vehicle safety. The logo is a picture of a tunnel. Commemorative stickers of the logo can be purchased at Harrod's or through their website.

:D

The award is not for the car, its for the business:

The Queen's Awards for Enterprise: International Trade 2002
HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN has been graciously pleased to confer Her Awards in 2002 upon the following business units in recognition of their outstanding achievements in International Trade:

The award is for innovation leading to an increase of British exports.

I believe it was really for a scheme to export the Exige to the colonies and make people who want a supercharged one pay twice.

When the Queen heard about it she laughed so hard she wet herself.... just a little.

No thanks, mine resides in the same place. I guess they would be less lonely. I pondered putting mine on the car several times but couldn't figure out where I wanted it.
