I love the RS it’s such a sublime “all-arounder” as GT cars are designed to be but….

I need something rawer sitting next to it. I’ve been on the Caterham configurator with some bad ideas in my head. I believe Superformance can import a speccable 620R. Straight cut sequential gearbox box is going to be sex. RH drive only I can live with that.

Old meets new - Lotus Green with Porsche GT3 Acid Green. Yes please:

That's as close as you can get to a motorcycle with the safety features of a car.

If that's too raw have you thought about a Lotus? A friend of mine is a huge fan of them and has had several.

I was shopping for the latest Exige - the really fast one - before I bought the RS. I called the nearest dealer and was disappointed to learn Lotus doesn’t sell new Exiges in the US.

I wonder if they can be feasibly imported like the Caterham? I doubt it given Lotus production volume. I’m wondering if new Caterhams are being imported to the US under “show and display exception” due to low volume…

Either way I can get one here.

620R is a lot of car - intimidating even. The power to weight ratio and lack of nannies require serious respect.

If you are really serious, a client of mine is co-owner of the Lotus dealer in Seoul. I am pretty sure dealer agreements with Lotus would prohibit selling outside your franchised territory, but again, if you are serious, I could ask.

I want the Caterham now - GT3RS was an “instead of” purchase on the lotus. Thank you for the offer.
