Lotus is celebrating their 40th Anniversary of production by releasing a limited edition, Europe-only version of the Elise S. They will only release 50 of these cars in total, distributing most of them to Germany and Switzerland.
Each one of the cars will be coated with a cool-looking burnt orange paint, with color-matching calipers, interior trim, and stitching. They will also get special “Limited Edition” badges, numbered build plates, and a letter signed by Lotus CEO Mike Kimberly.
The new color looks great (I’ve always loved burnt orange,) but there just isn’t enough different to make it worth a special purchase. Hopefully they won’t charge much more than the regular Elise S for this edition.
