Previous Road & Track Article

I was looking at the R&T Great Grip article online. The car they tested was the 120 BHP Elise. It came in second overall but first in performance. They said the only reason it got second was because it was too basic to be considered a practical street car. It makes you wonder how the Fed version would have done?

The 120 BHP Elise crushed some pretty tough competition: Porsche 911 Turbo and Boxster S, BMW M3, Corvette Z06 as well as spanking a Ferrari F360 in many of their test!

The magazine said all it lacked was power. Our car will have at least 190 BHP. I know we are in for a treat
