have you seen the video of this guy (I believe he was a black guy dressed like he was in a rap video) who was reviewing an 260Exige I think it was? He had no idea what the car was or even the pronunciation. It was great! I'm looking for the video, but can't find it.

I like this one of an Exige at Thunderhill. I like how the Mustang he's chasing in the first lap gets some good air going over the Cyclone. Mostly I like that this is a very clear and well done video with good sound and a gauge overlay. I found this video very helpful before the first time I went to that track in my Miata, just using it to learn the track. Good video, nice car, excellent driving.

Rob's Exige (in the Thunderhill video) is now very similar to the car in btotheje's video after many rounds of mods.

Here's some Lotus porn, shot by Brian Zuk here in Northern California. My car is the camera car and there are some excellent stills of it toward the end. Recommend full screen in 720p with good speakers.

Nothing like some good lotus porn to hold me over during the winter... thanks for sharing the videos, guys! And I'd never seen that commercial before; it's hysterical!

Don't copy the "share" link. Go to the video and copy the link in the address bar and paste it in your post. It will hotlink it and show up like the rest.

Here's the driver's view, not quite as dramatic, but still an excellent move.

Japanese "Drift King" drives the Rover Elise and compares it to the Boxster S, S2000, Corvette, and a couple others.

Lotus part starts at 9:35

Similar, but minus the W2A barrel cooler and big turbocharger!

Same car as in your threading the needle video, funnily enough!

I can not locate it but there is a neat vid showing a compilation of track videos for a Seven. It ends with a fatal crash just over the top of Eau Rouge. Music and editing are very very good. Would love to see and share that one if anyone knows of it.
