Ok, really wierd - I was just on their website 20 minutes ago...(looking for a new job)

I heard (forget where) that they do import cars to the US but none are street legal. The newest ones are built with a Honda S2000 engine. They have a "Road Pack" to make them UK street legal, turn signals and such, but no windshield /windshield wipers. I think that the US requires windshield wipers (see that pathetic useless ones on some Chaterams/Sevens). So you could get the engine put in here in the US to qualify as a "kit car" but the WW wipers might kill it.

The atom is a mean, mean little machine. 1000 pounds and 220 hp. I can't imagine what that thing would do to an elise on a track :)

Here are the Rockingham track times that they posted on their website. It's FAST! WOW!
Anybody know where I could get line-art pictures of all the cars like that, in high-res or line-art (ps,pdf, illustrator) form?

well that answers the question whether the suspension is working.

Heck of a 'kit car'. Wonder what it would perform like after some tuning by Lotus? Could this be the next generation Series 7?
