Anyone know the turning radius of the Elise? Surprisingly, I don't think it's as small as the turning radius of my MR2 Spyder. In fact, the first time I went to pull out of a space, I scared myself a bit, cause I came a lot closer to the next car than I expected. I've been pulling out of the same space for years in the Spyder, and I cleared that other car by a lot more!

According to R&T, the turning circle for the Elise is 32.8 ft.

According to Toyota, the turning circle for the '04 MR2 Spyder is 34.8 ft.

Don't know the exact numbers, but the Elise turning circle is *huge* for such a small car.

Price to pay for the race-car like double wishbone front suspension.. Can't really turn the wheels in much further before you'd start hitting the suspension parts or the chassis..

Bye, Arno.

Dan: Thanks! I'll have to do a comparo of my cars, cause I could swear the Spyder has a smaller turning radius.
