New Lotus owners will be able to take delivery of their vehicles in the U.K.

The British automaker has announced a new delivery program that will allow customers the option to pick up their new car at the company’s factory in the U.K. While the Lotus Evora is the only model available in the U.S., customers worldwide that also purchase the Elise or Exige will have the same option. The program is similar to what German automakers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz offers with European delivery experiences and pricing is set at around $1,300.

The experience begins with customers heading to the automaker’s headquarters in Hethel, U.K., where they’ll get to enjoy refreshments and a tour of the factory where each vehicle is built. After that, customers will then head to the Classic Team Lotus center where they can take in the sights of historic Lotus vehicles including numerous Team Lotus race cars. After taking delivery of their vehicle, they can either depart the factory or head over to the Hethel test track ($300 additional). Joined by a Lotus instructor, the new owner will get an opportunity to test their car on the track while being coached.

Along with the package comes a photoshoot of the event, a Lotus print signed by Clive Chapman, a portable battery charger, car cover and a special owner’s manual with documentation on the vehicle’s specific build.
