    Iquark -- that is a swap kit that is available from aftermarket companies

    GSRCRXsi -- basicly the whole car is aluminum, CF, or fiberglass, it also has little to no frilly options
    heres a pic of the chasis of an elise
    [​IMG]

    heres a pic of the interior... notice that there is virtually NOTHING in there
    [​IMG]

    lsvtec -- the exige has a full hard top instead of the removable targa top of the elise... there is a "window" that covers the engine compartment, instead of the flat rear of the elise... slightly more agressive aerodynamics... blah blah blah
    heres a really good article about the car

    I have seen one in person at a carshow. Tiny is a big word for this thing. A del sol could run them over. They are basicly a big go-kart with a bigger engine in it. I would take one of those any day over a skyline/ferrari, porsche, lambo.......

    :werd: I saw a red race prepped (supposedly, according to the dealer) elise w/ the B18c5. Almost let go in my pants right there in front of it. All kinds of murcielagos and modenas and arnages around and I was stuck on the elise. I'd take that car over anything.
