Way cool!

Im all for electric cars but, how many laps could that Electric Elise complete at that pace?

The Lotus Elise is not a very practical car, but it could probably be considered the most practical motorcycle ever made!

2nd vid appears more of a marketing exercise than a true comparison.

Doesn't look like they were comparing it to a federal elise. I'd wager it was an Elise 'S', the lowest performer and costing Elise not available over here.

It would be nice if people did performance comparisons vs models of the elise/exige that are in similar price ranges.
