that thing is fucking SIC!!!
isnt that the prototype racing lotus elise???? prototyperacing
its an exige, not an elise
well on prototype racing's website they call it a Elise-Exige
What kinf of power does that car have stock? And how much do they weigh?
It comes with a few diffrent engines ranging from the 140hp Rover K-series engine, to the Toyota Celica GTS engine. Not 100% on the exact weight, but they are pretty light.
The extige is basicly the more racing geared elise, with a full hard top and a stiffer, more agressive suspension. The one that I saw in person was a rover K-series engine in it, and even with just that (like 140 or so hp) the thing kicked ass on Gingerman Raceway
I think they weigh under 2k lbs, probably like 17-1800 and some came with like 190 hp.
well, they are wrong.
it's simply and Exige
Now what car will E get rid of to get that...the Sol or the Battery car...or both?
why isnt it for sale in the us?
for the longest time, the elise, exige, and everyother model simliar to the elise didn't pass smog (since the roverk engine was never on the US market, so it would have cost a shit load to make a US version of the engine) The car was not designed to pass our crash standards (more money) The front end had around 14 diffrent body panels, which would be horrible for insurance, and crash standards. The newest Elise that we are getting is getting an engine that has already passed smog (Yota engine) diffrent front end with all the proper crash bumpers and stuff. Also, air bags, and a few other safty things.
Its the same reason why we never got the skyline, and a shit load of other bad ass cars.
i want that
If that car were neon pink, I would still drive it.
So would I... I'd drive it as it sits...but I just don't like silver on cars.
i'm not big on lotus cars. but wasn't the elise B18C5 powered before? was that legal here?
