The only car I'd seriously consider iinstead of or in addition to my Elise would be an Exige. With a bit of a power upgrade it has the balls to make chrome orange look bada$$!
I love the Exige, although i am a little curious as to why Lotus did it again, apparently it was a bit of a slow seller the first time out.
As you all know the Exige is a butched up Elise, but apparently it is different enough that it can't come over as an Elise. Unless someone at Lotus can get an exemption.... you KNOW they'll try it if they can!
