ATTN: USA owner

i wanted to know if the us exiges are street legal. Or if they are not, why aren’t they?thank you all.seth volpe

None of the Elise-based cars are legal in the US. Anyone caught driving one on the road can have their car seized, and run through the car crusher. One simple reason: Lotus hasn’t spent the time or money to get the car into a DOT or EPA compliant condition. Anyone who tells you different is selling snake oil.

Some states have “special purpose” plates that can be obtained. These allow for cars to be driven to and from shows or club events.

that sucks…i wanted to get one after college. i guess ill just have to wait a some time after college and get myself a race car. thank you allseth
