Simply amazing video at the LeMans/Bugatti track in France of an Elise vs. various exotics: Ferrari Enzo, 360, F355 / Lamborghini Gallardo / Bugattti (EB110?) / various Porsches.

If anyone knows more about this Elise, let us know. If memory serves, I believe it is relatively stock but has some suspension modifications ...and a very good driver.

Torrent coming

I'm 54% in, and getting 9.8k/s.

As soon as it completes, I'll put up a .torrent for a few days to help ease the load.

ETA: 2 hours

NE1 knows the spec of that Elise? It attacks every corner at incredible speed and 100% stable. It seems like it's on racing slicks. Those Enzo/Lambo drivers must be checking their rear view mirrors every time they brake coz that Elise tires to out-brake them and dives into the corner everytime.

Is that definately an Elise? On the 1-11 site they show pics of blue S2. The only silver car is a VX220 turbo. I was not sure if the vid was from the vauxall or elise. I posted but have yet to see a response. Either way cool video.

Well, Slashdot this is not. :)

Bittorrent is useful when a whole bunch of people want the same huge file at once -- it spreads the bandwidth around everyone downloading it with each helping the other out. Neat trick for huge popular files.

Anyway, for the more direct approach, you can just download it straight from here: [REMOVED]

I've allocated 2000KB/sec and I'll leave it up until Wednesday so the people here have a chance to grab it.

Tuesday: Change of plans.. after 471 downloads, I had to take it down early. Sorry guys. Please use the torrent link above. If you haven't used Bittorrent before, this is a great time to learn, eh. :)

Its definitely an elise. Notice the very sharp edge to the front fender that meets the headlamp. VX's are flat on the top side of the fender.

Enzo driver must be a-scared to wreck his million dollar super car... What's the point of have a car like that if your skill level is so inferior to the car's? I think it really shows him up as a bad driver, he barely even pulls ahead in the straights much less the corners. I would rather drive a $20k car and look like a pro than drive a million dollar car and look like a wimp. He needs to get something he’s not scared of. He would have more fun.

Not to take away from the Liz, but anyone in an Enzo should be able to put huge space between themselves and an Elise in a straight. I think I saw it posted on SELOC, they were commenting on how most Ferrari drivers are just bad drivers.

The enzo wasn't pulling away at all on the straights, I seriously doubt he was hitting his engine, perhaps still breaking it in? Just learning his car? Or simply timid (not a bad way to be with a toy like that.)

Wow, that's a lot of traffic for a lapping day. And a lot of high-$ machinery going two-wide. (Definitely not the typical crowd at the DE/TTs around here.)

It is a damn shame that none of those Ferarris were pushing. The Enzo driver is a laughing-stock. At least that Gallardo would hit the throttle on the straights (must be 'cause of the orange paint!).

Then what's the point? The Enzo is clearly made for one thing and one thing only... Going VERY VERY FAST!
The Enzo isn't just for going very very fast. Clearly it's also made for drivin' very slow while you troll for some gold digging ladies. LOL. Don't be a hater. It's all good :D
