Very cool. :idhitit:

I've driven a few Elises before at autocross. What a blast. This thing will rock with the added structural rigidity over the Elise, and the extra oomph. Everything about these cars shouts "purpose built", like anything except drivability is secondary.

Awesome car! I like these cars more and more.

Here is an Elise, owned by a friend of a friend, and it is his daily driver! Hope you don't mind if I add it here too.

great car, even greater if you're shorter than 5'8"

I'm 6'2" and would not drive the car with another guy in it with me, too small..........

I would however like the car with a 98lb anorexic girl

The passenger seat is about 3/4 the size of the drivers seat in these cars, so 98 lbs is about right.

Best suited for track duty.

Please add your Lotus, maybe we can make this into a Lotus thread if more people add their Lotus pics.

Those are incredibly great toys to take from side to side. I saw 3 of em in a furniture parking lot following each other super close and doing cool stuff like donuts, etc. I'm pretty sure they had to be the owner's kids...
