Can someone tell me if there is a current Toyota Engine Elise that is somewhat of a guinea pig, and that has many miles on it for test purposes?

I've always wondered what the process is for a company trying out a new engine. How hard do they work the engine? Do they beat on it to see where it gives first? Is it possible that there is a Toyota Engine Elise out there with 40K plus miles on it and counting?

I'm wondering if the company would even give out that type of information so that we don't feel like such guinea pigs with the new engine...

Thanks for the info guys, but how do you guys know this (curious)? Is that public information from a car company or somewhat top secret?

There were some major issues with the toyota motor, but those have since been resolved
Do you know what the major issues were and how they resolved it?

Ara-
You mentioned there are already 1000 Toyota/Elises out there running. Do you mean being built or actually on the road in Euroupe?

Thanks for the replies guys,

EG
