saw another yellow one the other day.
no wonder there are so many, they're officially for sale here in Canada.. here's the article: http://en.autos.sympatico.msn.ca/adv...tentid=4023089
... and the price:
"More Change in Canada
The base price for an Elise is $58,550 (plus $1,415 freight charge). Lotus confesses that this is a bit more than the US/Canada exchange rate difference would suggest, but say that the engineering changes to meet Canadian standards, plus the higher cost of importing cars to Canada, not to mention amortizing advertising and marketing costs over a disproportionately small number of cars and dealerships, accounts for the differential; certainly if they thought they could sell more cars profitably at a lower price, they would."
