Friends,

Toured the Lotus factory last Wed. It is a cool little factory that still essentially hand builds cars. No robots. The cars are hand painted and assembled. The tour is short but provides a good overview. I did not see any fed cars on the line though our tour guide suggested there 'may' be one or two out there. There were plenty of 111Rs and Exiges under construction. Personally I thought there would be more fed cars on the line. It appears they are still planning on delivering cars to the US in May. It seems Lotus is very excited about our car.

The 111R internal code name is Cyclone. Most of you know that our car is called the Croft.

Saw several CO Exiges. Simply beautiful.

Just to bring you up to speed. Nick Adams had a get together at Hunting Ridge Motors, confirmed the first us customer elise rolled off the line two saturdays ago.

I got an email from TOny Shute further confirming the production beginning and being on schedule.
