This car is so awesome. It is light and fast. It isnt as fast as some super cars. It was designed with one thing in mind. bringing the car and driver and creating one thing. the car becomes a part of you when you drive it. I have not driven one of these but I did drive a 99 elise which is pretty close. If I worked at it I might be able to get my del sol to this cars level of fun and ability. Another thing about it is that the engine is straight out of a toyota celica. so parts and repair should be cheaper and easier than a hand made Lamborghini or Ferrari. It performs almost the same. I think the lotus would come out on top in a course with few straightaways. With a few modifications this car should beat anything with 4 wheels on a race track. This car requires no radio. The only sound you need is about a foot behind you screaming all the way to its 8500rpm readline. most super cars weigh 1000pounds more than this light weight. If you go into a blind corner just lift the throttle and turn because this car can turn faster than you can see . The car is not very practical. its loud and you feel every bump in the road. You can feel a single rain drop if you drive over it. I know I dont have one but I drove its sibling and the car was so fun. T My Del sol is somewhat close, but there is a huge difference between FWD and RWD in cars like this.

I want one period

Hey spook. I have lusted after the elise/exige since they were conceptualized. I will probably own an elise if I ever get rid of the miata. It will be track only though.

I love the little Elise, the Exige S is the latest and greatest. Great car, but I think I prefer the Ariel Atom even though it isn't as practical.

+2 for the atom,

If you look to actually buy one, there's a "street legal" kit that adds things like a license plate rack, appropriate lights (blinker, brakes, etc) and a windshield for the front. It's like 2 small bubbles to help deflect the air over your head.... kinda like a motorcycle windshield

Is that for the US? I was skeptical if you could even make something street legal out of that. I also didn't know that a honda civic engine can make 300hp. just kidding, don't wanna get in a fight with any honda guys... It is very somilar to the lotus, actually. This is a go-kart, and the lotus is a go-kart with a body. Pretty awesome though, I want one...
