Am I missing something why would you rather drive a tow vehicle than an Elise?
Does it come with multiple sets of tires?
Fly over there and drive your new baby home!
Spend all that money in transport when you could get 26 mpg having a really great time. Man I wouldn't miss an 11hr road trip in my Elise for the world.
I look for and even invent/create excuses to take my car places, any place.
The farther away the better.
From what I've read so far either you are buying the wrong car, or you are insane, which = buying the wrong car.
