I have someone on another (non-Lotus) board claiming they have 3 new elises on their showroom floor waiting to be picked up by their owners, and a third (yellow) one with a $50,000 price tag that is for sale.
No way. Okay, I'll qualify that - It's obviously not likely, he's probably referring to the press cars, and also the yellow euro-spec S2 that many of us on this board have driven back a year or more ago. A number of the press cars are being housed there. Will check it out though (the things I do for you people! )
I gave a call to a contact at Newport European, who told me they're expecting the first batch of fed cars sometime next week. In fact may be just the one demo car, not sure. At any rate he said they don't have anything in since I'd checked in with them a few weeks ago.
