Elise variants

Questions....

What are the differences between the tourer, S, and R variants?

Is there any way of spotting the difference on the Exterior and Interior ?

Regards

I think it depends on the year as to what each one displays.

Some have decals which indicate their variant, but some don't. I had the Sports Tourer which is a bog standard S2 with carpets, not to be confuzed with the touring pack which includes Air Con.

There are so many varients its best to ask about a certain model year or destinguish between which Engine, pre/post facelift and Series. I got confuzed and I have owned 2. :blink:

PS

My other S2 Elise was a Race Tech, which was a bog standard Elise (with no carpets) MY 2002

OK, basically I am looking for a S2 111s 02 to 05 K series.

As far as I can make out, the way to tell the difference between the 111s and the sports tourer / Elise is :

1, round exhaust instead of oval

2, 8 spoke wheels instead of 6.

3, modified rear diffuser which is stepped instead of straight across.

Are there any other tell tale signs?

I have seen so many cars for sale saying they are the 111s which have not got these alterations, thinking that the garages do not know what they are actually selling?

Is there a way in the chassis number to tell it has the 160bhp K series vvt engine and not the standard 120bhp?

Elise model history is quite informative

Cheers Phil, it seems to be a mine field out there !

On another note, I originally posted this in this section, but it was moved to general car chat by Bibs I think? great I figured, at least more people may see it and have an opinion :)

Now I have added a post to the original thread, it's been moved back to the original place. Can I win?? :blink:
