Need Advice - Elise 190R vs US Elise

1577 Views 12 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  DanH

Anyone with real life experience with the Elise Sport 190R -- I need some advice.

Have a US Elise on order list and have found a nice used Elise Sport 190. I plan 90% track use (I realize the limitation on registering the car for street use).

I believe the 190R may be arguably a better track car than the US version -- but have no experience with the car or engine - the high output Rover VHPD.

Also wonder what the value of the older 190 will be in the future?? Can see it both ways - up or down??

Any thoughts and advice appreciated???

Thanks - Jon

Nothing official on the Exige coming to the US. Speculation would suggest that perhaps it'll be available in a couple of years. There's a new S2 version (the current Exige is based on the S1) that has been in development for the European markets.
