The 06 redesign thread got me thinking, with the new fed restrictions that are going to go into effect, this could very well be the last super lightweight raw sportscar ever available in the U.S.
The new models look exactly like a widened Corvette from the rear and a bit like a Ferrari or Lambo from the front. They look like they weight a lot more too, and they cost about $150,000- If I had the $ I'd by a Ferrari instead.Mosler automobiles are typically very "raw" too.
Uhh... don't know where you get your info, but the Mosler MT900 weighs only 1980 pounds... about the same as your Fed. Elise... and the Photon version (the upgraded one) will be coming out with a 500+ hp 383 c.i. engine next year. With figures like that, I'd buy it even if it looked like a Raptor. Although personally, I think it looks HOT.xxxotic said:The new models look exactly like a widened Corvette from the rear and a bit like a Ferrari or Lambo from the front.

Have you seen the RX-8 Ads in the car mags, "weight is the enemy", like 3000lbs is light. Thats OK I don't consider anything with more than two seats a sportscar anyhow, but still the Celica weighs more than 200lbs less and it's the same type of car, coupe/GT.ConeFusion said:"The RX-8 at 3000 lbs is almost a lightweight by today's standards.
For the Enzo, that $700 will only cover the custom Shell oil @$60/qt.; it does not include labor or the filter. If you think that is crazy, how about $6k for brake pads and $24k for the rotors? That lovely V-12 that gets you to 200+mph will run you $200k...Derek said:[...]
Plus I hear Ferrari oil changes cost $700. That’s just plain crazy.
