I noticed a couple interesting things in those photos:

1. Notice the position of the third brake light? I don't recall ever seeing this on an Elise before. Probably shows what the US tail will look like.

2. Note the position of the exhaust tips. Well, more specifically, that they're not in the typical location and are not even visible in this picture. This strengthens the rumor that the exhaust will exit down through the diffuser area.

OK people. Sorry for the splurgepost but I figured most people would appreciate it given that Autocar is difficult to get outside the UK.

ps. Looks like the low exhausts weren't just on the mule then!
