April 2024 After a while waiting for it, at the start of this month I finally spotted again one of those tiny first generation Elise, initially I didn't notice this lovely yellow Lotus was coming, then while I was waiting at a traffic light, driving to the mall, my mother asked what ''that strange yellow car'' was and this turned right in front of me and parked nearby, so when the light turned green I approached it, I stopped and asked the owner if I was allowed to take some pics and he said yes, so while he was walking away I parked my car properly and started taking pics, this is the first time I stop my car to spot something, so I took the pic N.3 to celebrate this special moment :) A plate check confirmed this is not a special version but ''just'' the 118 hp one.

    She looks fantastic, Giacomo. I do hope that your feeling better now, my friend? I recently read that you were feeling under the weather this past weekend?

    @Horse-Power Thanks a lot West, this small Lotus is really a lovely car, while if we talk about me, I'm feeling better even if still not 100% fine but I guess and hope that I will totally recover in the next days!
    P.s. Those first gen Elise cars are not street legal in the USA right?
