I visited the Storm Titanium car at Overseas Motors. I took a lot of pictures. I will post a few. I resized them down a bit, to make them more friendly.

I have decide to post pictures that most people haven't taken. Details I haven't seen. So they may seem weird choices of pictures to post.

First I will post a picture I took while standing on the bonnet. It shows that place between the seats.

Ok now the shift knob and stuff close to it.
Is it in gear in that photo ? Or is the stick bent ?

Now for the space behind the seats. It is a bit small. Maybe you could put your lunch bag there, now that you will be carrying your lunch so you can afford the Elise:)

I took a close up of the Headlight. The low beam is a projector. The high beam is a standard halogen but small reflector with a small parking(?) light inset into the top of the reflector.

I know this is a strange question, but do you have a picture of the space between the engine and the firewall?

Racer X,

Did they move the car to the display floor? It looks like it from your bottom picture. [Edit: Never mind, I asked too quickly. Great pictures!]

Also, did you get any more info on what they are doing with this "gift"?

The last for now is a picture that shows a silver (artic?) Espirit in the background for comparison to the Storm Titanium. I have a lot more mundane pictures, some good some not so good. I will post more if there is anything that someone wants to see, maybe I took a picture of it.

If the cap isn't locking, does the aluminium flap lock, with a release lever in the cabin, or can it be freely opened ??

Not a strange question. Had I thought about it I would have. There did not seem to be much room. I think a turbo will fit better than a supercharger. Unless it is a centrifigal one put soomeplace different.

Maybe this will encourage someone to take that picture when they got to visit Elise at the dealer:)

No, it does not lock or have an inside release, just open it with your finger! Very primitive:D

Yes they moved it to the display floor about 12:20 today. It is in the other display room, not the one you may normally enter.

I would guess that they will try to get "market price" for it.

sure looks like the passenger seat is the same size as the driver's
Yes, but in the first picture you can clearly see that the driver's seat is closer to the car's centerline. The driver gets more outside elbow room than the passenger.

I didn't think that was legal :huh:

kbob - It's kinda difficult to judge exact seat spacing coz Spiderman took the photo at a slight offset. Were you suspended from the roof or something X ?
