    Yup I saw a Yellow one and my brother saw a blue one.

    Cool car. They are TINY. I feel they cost a tad much, but I guess that is the cost of exclusivity. At lest the US ones got a decent engine (Toyota 1.8) instead of that Rover POS.

    I hear they handle like a slot car.

    Yep, I keep seeing the same yellow one and I saw a red one. I want to see the blue one though!

    I saw the yellow one first maybe a week or two ago.

    I haven't seen any of those even though we have a dealer here. I did, however, see a McLaren-SLR as well as a Ferrari F40, both on the way to the range oddly enough.

    Seen quite a few of them now. There was a fellow who is easily into his sixties and doesn't seem to be in good health who drives a red one with white stripes. That's gotta be hell on his back. With my fat belly, I could squeeze in but I could barely climb out.;J

    It's a tight handling car, that's for damn sure.

    I have seen lots of cool cars here in Indy, but one of the coolest belongs to this old guy. I guess he made some anti-itch powder and made millions. He has a highly MODIFIED F40. The first time I saw it was Sat. night before the first ever USGP in 2000. I thought it was a kit car at first, since I didn't think anyone would do that to an F-40. But, when it took off and I heard thatexhaust note, I knew it was real.

    Later my brother saw it while he was riding his CB-1000. It took off like a bat out of hell. He admitted there was no way his could have kept up with it.

    There is also someone who has a stock F-40 that lives near my parents, A guy that used ot come to the Discount Tire where I used to work who has 2 Porsche 930 turbos (one a factory slope nose), some one who likes to hang out in Broad Ripple (area of indy with lots of bars and clubs) who has a deep blue Ferrari 512tr Testarossa (that thing sounds freakin awesome).

    I am waiting for someone to turbo thier Elise. If I had one that would be the only thing on my mind.

    I really wish Lotus had sealed the drivetrain deal with honda instead of Toyota...turbo B18C5s are making 300whp with stock compression/internals, I haven't seen much about turbocharging the 'Yota stuff though

    TRD has turbocharging and supercharging outfits for their engines so it shouldn't be a big deal, although finding space for it would be "interesting"...

    Yup I saw one up close a few months back. The guy didn't look like he knew what he really had, he drove it like an old lady.
