Odd-looking S2 Elise- can anyone identify?

1062 4


Here are some pics of a 2001 Elise that I've seen for sale. It looks a little unusual to me, so I was wondering if anyone knows more about it?

The bolt-on cover over the side air intakes I could understand as an add-on by a previous owner. What I don't understand is why the vents at the rear of the car, along the outside edges of the rear lights, are missing. Was this an interim car maybe? One of the first S2s or something, produced before Lotus realised they needed vents in this position?

Any advice gratefully received!​
