that's it. I'm gonna start saving my pennies now. Whether it's this car or another, I will own a lotus. I was hoping for a little more of a pep than a 3.5 60'... this one will probably be just as heavy as the Elite.

If it does come over to the states it will be base priced at 117,870.00 at the current us dollar conversion rate.

Then add in the fact that everyone that is actually rich will want one, so you can expect to pay an inflated dealer markup of 20-40%, and you're looking at 150K for this vehicle.

Personally, even if I was rich, 150k is just too much money to spend on a car, you would be smarter/wiser by investing that money and double/trippling it in 2-3 years.

I'd have to be filthy rich, like bill gates rich, to spend 150k on a car.

Having said that. I really like the design. I guess I'll get to drool over it in a magazine in a few years.

Nice. Like all the new Lotus models. Only troubling part is they are all slightly reminiscence of the last gen of Trans Am's/Firebirds. Specially in the green house. Not a good thing. On the other hand there is also a reminiscence of the 80's James Bond Esprit. A definite good thing.

That new rear end looks pissed off and badass. I was nervous seeing Lotus change their styling, but this, this is godlike. *drools*

Probably the first time in history that I like the outward appearance of all cars made by one brand at one time. :hitit:
