MSRP and other toys.
Well, I have to say, some of the responses are interesting.
FOR the record: My son took the photo of me and my toys, the camera is just fine!
So, I added a photo of the latest toy. 2005 Twin Turbo Cabriolet S Porsche.
Set me back over $150k before taxes, but like some of you asked: How does the Elis compare to the monster exotics?
Over the last 10 years I have owned and driven, I mean really driven many exotics including the F1 McLaren I owned in
Germany where transacted some business, and the lousy F50 Ferrari.
The Lotus Elise I drove on a racetrack in Hawaii
( Barbers Naval Station ) in January of 2000.
It was the original prototype made for Europeans.
The car was incredible. The meet was for exotic cars
owners exclusively and we were all asked to bring
our favorite handling car. I brought my water
cooled Twin Turbo Porsche, my best freind brought
his Diablo VT, and another his vintage Cobra.
We even raced on the track which consists of more turns
than straightaways. THE LOTUS won every time!
Now, in the straightaway ( 3/4 mile long ) the Lambo and
Porsche caught up, but when it came to the turns, the
Elise showed her beauty! I can only describe her
handling power like that of peanut butter in the roof of your mouth: Sticky!
