For those of you with a little more money to spend and patience to wait even longer, this car may interest you. Sounds lighter and more spartan than the Elise, although by the time it reaches the US (if it does) who knows?

Looks great!

Hopefully the 3" increase in the wheelbase is to accomodate a V8!! With a ~400HP V8, 55K would be a bargin - ok, 300HP in this light a car would be allright.

i don't mean to sound stupid, but explain to me why someone would want that car?

from what i could tell in autoweek, it is substantially more expensive from the elise, not as quick to accelerate, doesn't have the "perfect" handling balance of the elise, almost definitely could not be used as a daily driver, and doesn't look as good.

in comparison, it seems worse all around... what am i missing?
