    Looks great!

    Be happy its part Toyota. I have an Esprit V8 that's all Lotus and all I can say is that the reliability of that Toyota engine will keep your car running great.

    My car is exotic and beautiful, but a real pain in the rear.;)

    I can't believe how affordable that car is considering its stellar performance statistics. 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and 0-100 in 9.9... All for about $55,000.00. What a deal.

    the number i found was 0-60 in 4.1 quarter mile in 12.8sec @ 100+mph and it cost me close to $70K out the door :supergrin:

    The lotus is indeed that fast! It's more about the weight then the power, although it lacks much of the top-end power that, (in the same price class) the zo6's LS7 has.

    Edmunds says the lotus does 0-60 in 4.2 seconds, and the quarter in 12.8 @ 105 MPH. Note the low trap speed for a high 12 quarter. The z06 does the same 0-60 in 4.5 (traction issues) and the quarter in 12.2 @ 127 MPH.

    IOW: Lotus is great on a very short track, or stoplight to stoplight. Longer coarses show the need for mo' power.

    Nice car though - I would have bought somthing different myself (probably aforementioned Z06, but then Im more of a drag racer then a track man) but there is no denying thats its a sick, and very unusual ride.

    Nice car. Ive talked to a couple people that had them. They all wish they had stocks in a tire company. Enjoy button willow with that car. Last time i was there i went thru a set of michellens in one weekend, but i was also driving a over weight 4 door sedan there.

    That reminds me on what my uncle said about drifting. *in a joking tone* "It sounds like some sort of conspiracy by the tire manufacturers."
