How many of these still have their KIA badges on? lol

I couldn't find a single one for sale in The Lotus ones seemto go for 10k euros and up.

I remember when first gen Lotus Elise you could buy for ~5k... that ship has sailed...

one of the most rares KIA ever the Kia Elan... and yes it is a Lous Elan... after Lotus Elan production stoped, Kia bought the rights and tools and restart building the Elan as KIA Elan in 1995. There are only little changes like different engine, new rear lights replacing the Renault Alpina lights of the orginal Lotus Elan and of course KIA badges... KIA made only 1000 of it... only 1/3 of the Lotus production
