    :welcome to that year:

    Yea, it does get owned on the straight, but 400+hp vs 180ish. However, the super underpowered elise keeps up with him.

    WoooWoooooooooo the north track, a local favorite, and the Nordschliefe is the reason F1 doesn't race there anymore. Damn that Elise hardley gets owned, for that track it's a good choice. If he could have gotten around the vette, he could have put some good distance between them, maybe enough to take it.

    Anyone notice the little white EG?

    Naw, I've never driven the Nurnbergring. I want to because it is close, but on free days they have motorcycles and cars together instead of seperated like at Hockenheimring. Toooo dangerous for me, I'd rather drive a little further and be safe.

    That was sweet, but when it got to be 11:00 minutes in the video, the vette dipped out of him on the straight away! Sweet race, looks like fun!

    damn those guys were flying on that track especially when it started going downhill. Elise > C5 on the turns. The guy was so calm taking the turns, he even had time to pick his nose.

    Nurenbergring or nurenburgring, depending on who's spelling it.

    It s a F1 track in Nurenberg, Germany. Remember the nazi trials?

    i think motor sport elises* are more like 200hp but who cares. also the elise weighs half what that C5 does.

    i'd rather have the motor sport elise tho..

    I bet that C5 car in that clip weighs around 2500 lbs...which is quite a bit less than twice the Elise weight.

    LOL hey do me a favor, go into Ford garage and read the description of the 2000 Cobra R...it describes the 99 Cobra...lol

    Don't believe everything on that game.

    No Elises came with 200 hp, but Elises have come with the JDM ITR motor and 195 hp. With it's light weight that 195 hp Elise will out handle, accelerate, brake and skippad the 2000 Cobra R, and they both cost around 55k.

    Damn, I tied that together well.

    That's not a stock car though, that's like saying Civic had 220hp, based on someone swapping an H22A into one :p
