met up with some fellow nerds, and hit the canyons on Sunday morning. Amazingly, this car was phenominal on Latigo, I thought it would be to narrow and twisty for a car, but I guess not this car. It's so lightweight, when it's on the 2nd cam it really gets up the hill QUICK like......delish!!!!!

Luca, mine is the BRIGHT ORANGE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My wife wants one of those. I'm really searching for a way to justify it. >:D
wait a second, the *wife* wants one and *you* are searching for justification? I thought the way it usually worked was *you* had to justify it to the *wife*! ;D Mags and I fell in love with the elise, but we've never really gotten to the point that we could be comfortable getting one as a daily driver for one of us. We might put it off a bit and pick up one of the new supercharged exige s's as a 3rd car.

I didn't wait for the super charged version, because honestly I was going to buy a used Elise, which then turned into a used Exige wich turned into more money than I wanted to spend anyway. Car is "fast enough" I suppose and no matter what I did to it, it wouldn't be/feel as fast as a bike, so I'll just enjoy my slow version ;-D

You can get low milage (10K and below) 05' elises for close to 35 - 37 these days, they will only get cheaper.


I'll bring it on Wednesday and you can all look at it, point and laugh or whatever ;-D And y eah, it's hard to look cool getting out of it for sure.....

awesome toy! didn't ya think it worht it to wait for the titanium striped sport version?
the titanium striped exige LotusSport was 1) not road legal and 2) limited to 15 3) sold out before it was unveiled. The Exige S (which is supercharged like the LotusSport, but *is* street legal) should be hitting dealerships any day now.

Dude the Lotus is one of the baddest cars to ever hit the road. Boxster S's are cool & all but it ain't no Lotus. Here's what Road & Track had to say about it these two cars tested in Feb 2005:

James Bond likes to drive a Lotus
0-60 4.6 sec
1/4 mile [email protected]
skidpad 1.03 g
slalom 72.6 mph
19 mpg

Doctors like to drive a Porsche
0-60 5.0 sec
1/4 mile [email protected]
skidpad 1.0 g
slalom 73.9 mph
15.4 mpg
