I believe that the other Lotus is yet to be restored, hence you may not be aware. Both Lotus came as a package from another collector in Karnataka who has been selling of and on.

Jackie himself had two Lotii, a red and a white. One was used in the movie Rangeela, remember that for the music? But this green one is an ELITE, see the photo below.

There may be a maximum of 15 Lotii in India, in various state of repair. When Lotus starts in India shortly, they may help owners of older Lotus cars in India. Should be active in a month or so.

Hi Sathish, is the car I posted a picture of your car? You have not confirmed.
Riviera and Wildcat are different models, yours is a Riviera. Then there is the Wildcat 425 engine, an option available and may be your car has that option. Basically we are saying the same thing. Please do put up some photos of the restoration work being done, if you like to share.

Cheers harit
