HI All,
Just a heads up. A "street legal" Exige out of FL is on ebay right now, starting bid is 60K. Be a great car if it were street legal and factory original.

i've seen him list exiges and elises on e-bay every now and then. someone in texas bought a standard elise from him and is now driving it on the road, fully registered - apparently no problems. i don't know how the guy does it, but he seems to have found a way?

if he's found a LEGAL loophole it's one thing. but if he's knowingly profiting from illegal importation of vehicles, it's bound to catch up with him sooner or later - likely massive fines and possibly impounding/destruction of the cars.... i certainly hope the former is the case. if it's anything but legit, selling on e-bay doesn't seem like the smartest idea.

Yeh, right....

Notice that the car has no plates?

Street legal my *ss. Doesn't matter if he works for the DOT or EPA. Those cars were imported as off road only.

He probably is registering it as an older Lotus --gets titles from wrecking yards or worse launders them through Georgia or some other state that only needs bill of sale for titling.

I sure wouldn't pay $60K for a car only to get it home, try to register it and have the feds come take it away!

I wonder if I emailed the DOT/EPA with the auction address if he'd loose the car? Sure would be fun to try!
