Lotus claim that but if you ever own one its not true

A friend of mine has a scooby, fabia and octavia VRS and an elise,

Lotus claim the same sort of 0-60 times as the scooby but in truth its nothing near he also said that the fabia was a better car than it and not for things like carrying luggage just a better driving car

the only one of those he said the else was better than was the octavia

I quite like this car, but at 860kg isn't it a tad heavy for what a base Lotus should be?

Given that I don't think the US receives the 111R or 111S, we may not.

The US DOES receive the 111r. That was kinda the whole point of the 'Yota engined 'R', to get an engine that would pass all the necessary tests for the American market. Given that this new model is essentially the same as the 111R but with a detuned version of the 1.8litre engine, I see no reason why they couldn't sell it in America.

I don't think it will get here because the safety regulation waiver won't allow another car other than the Elise that we currently get or else it voids it completely and the sale of the Elise will stop and the other car will be prohibited. That's why the Europa won't come here. Then again this is based on the same platform so I guess it probably could. It's quite complicated.

I don't think that a 130bhp lightweight(ish) sportscar with a 0-60 time of nearly 6 seconds would really sell in America. The 111R and the Exige on the other hand are fast enough to be able to run with much more exotic machinery and thus are worth all the incovenients for americans.

According to Lotus USA web site neither of the available Lotus cars are the 111R.

You can order different appearance and suspension packages but the Elise and Exige sold here both have the 190hp engine.

The 190bhp Elise is known as the 111R here.

they are the same car, just here the regular elise is actually the 111R. to help it appeal to doubters of cars with 120hp. i hope they do sell it because i would try to get a dealer test-driven example
