What are the differences between the car we are getting and the new 111R that is now available in England? Airbags, dash, and some bolt on side reflectors? I really can't think of anything else. They get the same seats, ABS, hood changes, oil coolers, etc.
I bet Lotus will surprise us and have this car here sooner than we think - the first cars may very well be here by April after all...???

Someone reported on SELOC that they were getting a new 111R delivered in Australia. Claimed to be the first one delivered to a customer.

I don't know of any other differences other than the steering wheel on the wrong side.

Yep, I asked the ozzie dude to post his feelings on the car compared to the S1 he just sold.

As I said on SELOC, it would seem everyone will have the yota powered car before we will.


I believe the US cars also have a reinforcing section in the door.

Hi I'm the Ozzie dude (well Kiwi actually). I haven't seen the 111R yet but I'm told the only real difference is the dash which is exactly the same as the 111S. We don't have the side indicator repeaters either.

Everything else should be very similar though. Doesn't look like we get a starter button or tyre inflator sensor either as that appears only with the federal style dash I believe.

Also at the rear we have a round Lotus badge and I think you guys may get the old style L O T U S, I think they are still debating this.

I'll keep you guys updated on the info. I receive.

Sorry for the ozzie insult ;) !

The US cars do get the LOTUS script in back. I think everyone here anxiously await a report (and pics!) from you especially since you've owned an S1.
