That lotus just shows you what our engine can do with a lot of weight reduction. I read 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, and the car weighs less than 2000lbs. RWD doesnt hurt either.

Q: How do you double the value of a Ford?
A: You put gas in it.

Ya... the Elise sounds very promising as a true sports car. I'm even interested in going out and looking at one once they get here..

But I'd rather have an Elise GT1 grin
