Strange to see a Lotus in the middle of all these Italian cars :)

I suppose it's exotic looking.!
From the front view it seems to be a later Series 2 version (1980's ...don't know the exact date the production started.!)

It's nose (under the bumper) is not original, that makes it indeed more difficult to recognise

Series 2 was May 80 - had wider front spoiler, described as wrapround. I think this is normal 74+ with US bumpers.

I've never seen one with bumpers like that. The ones that I've found either have a flat bumper or a ledge-style. Never seen one in the US with fog lights like this, usually the parking lights/turn signals are integrated into the bumper where the outer fog lights are. This model was only available until about 1979 here. The two imported guide resources I have both have 1976 as the first year for this model, but I have seen several on eBay that are 1974 US-Spec. NADA lists the model for 1974, no Lotus models for 1975, and 3 models (Elite/Éclat Sprint/ and Esprit) for 1976-79. From 1980-on, just the Esprit is listed.
