Best number plate you've seen on a Lotus


Recommended Posts

They make it a little easier Downunder. From time to time they bring out a new format and if you're quick, you can get some interesting number/letter combinations.

 

 

I've had "ELAN" and "E5PRIT".. and ...er.... for my daily driver... FI35TA :blush:

Some plates are more SU37LE than others :P

It was mentioned at the start of the thread but with no picture so here's one of my Essex Esprit.  

I’ve had three over the years.

1995 Esprit I own, is the last S4s ever imported to USA.

I'll leave my 'miserable attempt' here for you to consider. I describe it so because at least once a day, somebody points and utters "look at that Ferrari", :wallbash:.

Mine was on a P prefix original reg until the previous (short term) owner got hold of it. It's cool for a V8 - LOT V8 - but I am very wary of misrepresented number plates, having done some contract IT work for a police force and seeing how often the subject comes up on their intranets. I don't need them to have an excuse to pull me over!

So now it has legal plates, but I think that it still works. L(otus) 3(sprit) T(urbo) VB(8)?

My contribution. Just need to space the numbers a bit.

And this one was for sale with my Elan when I bought the car, but I didn't want another number plate. I think it's still for sale.

I did offer a substantial number of £K for LOT1S but he wanted considerably more.  Around £15K if anybody interested, and no I'm not on commission!  My offer is still on the table if it doesn't sell, but I doubt I'll ever hear from him as it will go eventually.

This plate is still around. Was offered this yesterday. Didn't ask the price as I was not interested.

Here's one for sale on DVLA for an Elan Nut £599

Sorry not an Elan but it is a Yellow Lotus.

That explains it.

When the car was first advertised on here by a new member LOTIS, the number was being sold with the Elan. I wasn't sure how much they were looking for for both but when I went to see the car I was told that they were being sold separately, which I was pleased about as I don't need another number plate. As Al. has said they are looking for £15k for the number which I think is a bit rich, but I am sure it will appeal to someone at that price.

Personally think you've got to be a bit dumb to pay anything at all for LOT1S on a LOTUS. Saw a guy with PAJ1S on a Porsche at the weekend (hello Paul!) with dark tape turning the J illegally into a U, presumably to make it PAULS. But to me it will always look like PAJIS, or PAUIS at best - and LOT1S will always be a dumb misspelling.

Perhaps I'm being harsh!

I think you are being a tad harsh :). I agree for personalised plates that attempt to spell a name (and usually fail) but if you can find one within the confines of the DVLA rules (you know what i mean) then on the right car make or model it can be quite eye catching. I'm very happy with my Lotus Exige with the registration L70TUS
