 I quite like it although in the UK it'd be ridiculously impractical!

Don´t see the point here. The roof is foldable and fits in the rear luggage space. Just fetch it out when rainclouds appear.

I like them a lot, must be great to drive in the alps in one of them.  Rolf you are lucky to have owned one! 

That was a great experience with the St Tropez in the alps. Its half an hour drive from my home to reach the first pass :driving:
Add ons as the Elise 111R and later the Exige 410 did help to overcome the separation pain.

Isn't UK the country with the most types roadsters/convertibles etc? Seems to me you guys aren't afraid of a bit of rain and can appreciate a good car even if it requires some compromises.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

I would swap my S3 Turbo in a heartbeat for the Blue St Tropez. I think it looks stunning. I was offered one a few years ago, but as usual, didn't have the funds. When I researched them I think I found 6 in total had been built.

@ Rolf,  I have been a few times to the lotus club/museum in Bad Aussee (usaully in september for the hillclimb)  the panoramastrasse is a nice bonus.  I am doing a rebuild on my 1985 s3 and must admit I was very close to cut the roof off  but too much work,  instead I hope to take my blue europa there.

@lotus-62 Love that hillclimb too! Drove the St Tropez three years there. 
The driving picture of the St Tropez is from "The Loser Hillclimb".
Give me a note when you go next.
 
Better buy a finished St Tropez. It may be cheaper and a lot faster finally.
