Lotus fans in the United States have had little to choose from ever since 2011 when the automaker’s Elise and Exige were pulled from sale due to  being on the wrong side of airbag regulations.

It meant that the Evora was left as the sole street-legal car in Lotus showrooms. To keep things exciting Lotus started importing versions of the Elise and Exige designed strictly for track use. Since the cars were relegated to the track, they were—and still are—exempt from regulations.

Here’s what Lotus is offering for 2017:

2017 Lotus Evora 400:

  • Updated model introduced for 2017.
  • Revised styling.
