What's the black box in the passenger footwell? Is it related to the sequential transmission?

I don't love the styling, but frankly I think the styling is secondary to the car's mission.

Since it's not street legal, you give on-track test drives, right ;)?

If this were street legal, I also would own one. Love these cars - and I actually like the styling. I'd sell my current Exige in a heartbeat to pick one of these up.

YOU can own one!

Well, if you can't own 1:1 scale, how about 1/32 scale slot car version?

I've seen a white one at Laguna Seca. Just flat out beautiful. Initially I didn't like the rear end but it grew on me.

So when you pass someone should they say"Gee what an attractive back end that car has", or "How ugly! Bastards!"

Are these Cups only made in yellow?!

I took out an Elise Cup out last week.........same color.....looked almost the same.........Did Lotus have an excess amount of this color? Why are they all yellow?

Looks better body coloured than with the blackout IMHO. And looks better in person :)

Are there plans to make this street legal? WTF Lotus !!!!
If it was US$100k would you buy it? That is cost of a road legal one in the UK. It is US$125k in Australia...

Given the likely US market at that price is it worth it for Lotus to make it US compliant?

Not all yellow... but yellow is a very Lotus colour :)

Now that you mention it. And location is logical for weight distribution, but it looks bigger than necessary.
Well you're just looking at the cover. I bet the battery is an odyssey pc680 and the cover is that large to accommodate wire routing and floor mounting points.
