doesnt really say much but here it is anyways...a 2.2 L?????

from august issue of SCC:
Of all the cars that aren't available here, none are more delectably enticing than the Lotus' Elise sportster. Built with minimal mass in mind, the Elise has the reflexes of a glud-sniffing gazelle and the tenacious grip of a starving flcon on a fat rat. It's elemental car building at its most elementally attractive. And now it's on the verge of coming here. In order to get the Elise here, the prototype on display here are powered by 190-hp versions of Toyota's 2.2-liter VVTi powerplant mated to a Toyota manual transaxle. Subtle changes from the normal Elise include a relocated exhaust (it's now in the center, allowing air diffusers on either side of the undertray) and five-lug hubs in back(up from four). With a Toyota drivetrain and a tweaked structure to pass U.S. requirements, the Elise should be here by 2005.

they probably meant before 2005 when they said "by 2005"

What is a "glud sniffing gazelle"? Im not familiar with glud? lol

Surely that isnt a typo that meant "glue sniffing gazelle" as I would think a glue sniffing gazelle would run and jump rather hapazardly.

Cheers
Jenn
