They're nice cars. I once saw an Elise at a Toyota dealer. Guess the guy had a kid and needed a sedan :rofl:

Nice spotting. That Exige is sweet. I love the white...
I seriously would consider buying one of these when the prices drop or if they're ever admissable from the States.

I've driven a chrome orange Elise with an aftermarket supercharger that would blow the shit out of a factory Elise S/C, Exige, or Exige 240.
This has to be the funnest car I've ever driven!

That's an Elise, targa version for the Exige initially posted. Hakkola was referring to the Esprit which was V8 and mid-engined. The orange one specifically is a last-of-the-line edition car... it was at Race City on wed, but I don't have any pics. Very nice car (to look at ;))

is it just me or has the sunshine brought shit loads of lotus' out of the garage?

i was playing basketball in royal oak and i saw a black exige leave community then about 40 minutes later an orange elise left, then another black exige left again. the black one may have been the same one twice, but has anybody else been seeing alot of these?

Its actually an Exige S. its owned by a Friend of a Friend of mine... i know it sounds hillarious but Phil knows... Chris (ops) gets picked up in it once and a while.

i know nothing about how it was bought but it is a damn hot car.

Uh, you do know that the Lotus "Esprit" is a completely different car, right? No relation at all to the Elise/Exige line.

Sweet summer roadster. Looks good in that orange colour.

as much as the Esprit is a nice car... it goes completely against Lotus Design phylosophy of light and small... it was meant to fight the big players from italy.

and yeah... i see a lot of lotus's around lately... they are surprisingly inexpensive and fuel efficient... you can get them in vancouver.

As someone who just had a tour of the Lotus Cars factory a few months ago in the UK, I can tell you first hand that a lot of their employees very much lament the demise of the Esprit and are very eagerly looking forward to it's upcoming successor. (it is coming!)

The Lotus Esprit Turbo used to be one of my favorite cars back in my "exotic car posters on my bedroom wall" stage of growing up in the 80s.

Saw an Elise last night at BP's. And was talking to a guy who knows the kid with the red trimmed Exige. Supposedly he rear ended someone within the past few weeks becausehe wasn't paying attention lol

Werd. I remember it was one of my fav cars in Test Drive, even if it wasn't as fast as the Countach or Testarossa.

Also, i don't think it goes against Lotus' philosophy. Lamborghini has the Murcielago and Gallardo and both are brilliant and have their own appeal. I think it's cool if Lotus wants to and 'diversify' it's line up and have a bigger/more powerful model in addtion to the Elise/Exige type.

I believe that. Absolutely.

And DON'T post his site. Webmasters hate having their niches exposed.

I don't think that's right. The Elise isn't just a Targa version of the Exige.

:confused: I dont get it ..

there are no less then 25 Lotus Elise/Exige in Calgary .. ( just by Wiessach )

How can u guy know ALL OF THEM ??

Even with plate number .. how to memorize their plate number???

I know 5 guys with Elise already ... and I still can't tell who to who .. when I saw them ..

Even Elise, can have the Exige body kit to put on, (but pricy) and spoiler to put on ..

Again, it is a nice car, kind of exotic for reasonable price .. ( $75-85K average)

If it is a MC12 .. Enzo .. then we may know who to who ...

:dunno:

:) Seems like beyonders really like Lotus ..

Saw this couple month ago at the Porsche dealership.. a doctor traded it to a 911 Turbo ..

I think the phantom metallic black is the best color for the Elise/Exige .. :)

I love those forge wheels ! 12 lbs only!
