Located in East Anglia, in England, situated just 10 miles south of Norwich in the county of Norfolk is a town called Hethel. With a population just over 400 people, it’s a mere speck on the map, unless you’re a history buff, and then you may know it as the site of the airfield RAF Hethel from WWII. At that time, Hethel was the headquarters for both U.S. and RAF troops and their state-of-the-art aircraft.
After WWII, however, Hethel became the headquarters for a new development in engineering. Birthed from the relics of war, Lotus cars first emerged from old aircraft hangars at this very airfield, and even today with modern facilities, Hethel remains the headquarters for one of the greatest auto manufacturers in the world. It’s quite a story, and it just so happens you can become a part of that story by getting behind the wheel of our selection of new or used Lotus cars here in St. Louis with available shipping across the U.S.
Wherever you’re located across the United States, we know there is no replacement for the exact car you desire.

Lightweight, precise handling, ready-to-race… every Lotus is a truly special sports car.
To make sure that you get the exact car you want, without hassle and without having to settle for something less desirable just because it’s near your location, we offer shipping on vehicles that we sell. The idea of transporting a car across the country can be understandably nerve wracking for drivers, but that’s why we take matters into our own hands with drivers and trucks employed by us. We know what it takes to deliver your vehicle safely and on-time.
The Evora line has been in production since 2009, but more recently, the name Evora has been applied to the Evora 400 and Evora Sport 410, with the former producing 400 hp with 302 lb-ft of torque thanks to a supercharged engine. As expected, the Evora Sport 410 bumps that up to 410 hp, but it also has a reduced weight just above 2,900 lbs.
The Exige Cup 430 looks like a true racing car, and it has the performance to back it up with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.2 seconds. But other Exige models exist, too, like the Sport 410 and the Sport 350. Either way, you’re getting the look and performance of a car that can tear it up on both the road and the track.
The Lotus Elise is a favorite among drivers, so it’s no surprise that it’s been in production since 1996. The Cup 250 model was unveiled in 2016 as a more track focused variant of the Elise, but Lotus also has the Sprint 220 and Sport 220. The Sprint models came out in 2017 with the goal of shedding weight from the car.
The newest range in the bunch, Lotus makes the 3-Eleven in two forms: a road legal version and then a version for racing. Lotus kept production to just 311 cars, but if you can get your hands on it, you’ll be able to enjoy 430 hp that accelerates the car from 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds (if driving the road-legal version).
