Lotus Elise S 40th Anniversary Edition

Lotus Elise S 40th Anniversary Edition

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.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
