damn... 0-60 in mid 4s w/ a 190hp engine is insane.. so light, i bet that flies around curves. I WANT ONE.. wonder if many engine mods will be coming out for it.. turbo charge that thing and it will be INSANE
i think they shoudl have looked at the RX-8 engine a lot closer... might have proven to be a better option, because the last great low-hp low-weight race car was the RX-7 w/ a rotary (even though it could get crazy HP).
mmmm... carbon fiber panels for that car and lighter wheels... wow, i want one real bad
I tell you what since it has toyota engine so you know there will be ton of mods avail for this puppy...I can bet this that this car will be neck to neck with 911tt after little mod.
I dorve it right after I got out of my M3 and it felt quicker and handling was even better than my M3 and I use Pss9s on my M3..
It's supposed to get the same engine that goes in the Toyota Celica GT-S. Yeah, search Kazaa for the Top Gear reviews of the Elise. It's an absolute beast at the track, although supposedly it's hard to drive. Jeremy Clarkson experienced a lot of understeer with it, but when the Lotus engineer drove it, he made the thing powerslide to no end!
