Omg Its So Much Fun — Difficult to get into, but once your in its comfortable and the most fun you can have without buying an ariel Atom. Value for money is amazing, I've track raced with this car and had it for about 4 years.

The Car — The performance is great. The build quality is solid. The appearance is gorgeous. The gas mileage is good. The acceleration, braking, and handling is amazing. It does not need repairs. There is no squeaks or rattles. this is a really good car to drive. I do recommend this car to a friend because its really fun.

Pros

Very quick pickup and once you are in the seats..its quite a snug fit.  Great sounding engine and a dream to throw round sorners.

Cons

Forget about fancy modernities as you will get very few with this car but its all about the thrill..If you have the space in your garage, this or a caterham are a must have for those sunny weekends. Little niggles like the door handle design could have been much better and getting out is a bit like hard work especially if you are like me and over 6' tall.  Last but not least...not fun when it starts to rain haha

Drove 3 Laps Round A Circuit On A Track Day In Oxfordshire — Right..so once you have managed to clamber inside this super go-kart your ok..Turn the key and off we go and BOY!! does it go!! I was really surprised by how quick this car accelerates. Power-sliding was fun too as the track was a bit slippery ;-)

Pros

good acceleration, fast, gets people's attention

Cons

can't drive it in the rain. the slightest miscalculation of a dip or bump could mean you lose your whole bumper and everything connected to it..very tiny, very light, therefore very dangerous.
it is so low to the ground, even I have trouble getting in and out of it.

Wear Your Seat Belt. — great for driving at high speeds on a flat, even surface. good acceleration. kind of too noisy for me. Wouldn't want to get into an accident with this. I once pulled up at a red light next to what i thought was a mid-size to large suv. when i bent down to look out the driver window...i realized it was a Mini Cooper next to me. Yea. definitely wouldn't want to be in an accident in this thing. Too toy like. Not practical at all.

Pros

You've purchased a package full of enjoyment, performance, acceleration and the amazing freedom that you get from driving a motobike like you stole it.

Cons

Should have stolen a motobike.

This Car Will Adequately Address You Midlife Crisis. — You think you need a car that can take any corner @ blinding speeds and feel the g's as well as the impact of every pothole you drove over on the road in order to believe you're really alive? Strangely enough, errrr YES!

Pros

Light, light, light.  Communicates everything about the road.

Cons

All that "road communication" means you feel every single bump... most won't mind though.

Colin Chapman's Wet Dream... Less Is More, Is More, Is More. — Nothing but an intake and a muffler, and still one of the most go-kart cars I've ever had the chance to drive. Absolutely phenomenal. Such a light car, it stops and accelerates with such little effort, it's actually hard to drive smoothly 'till you've been in it for a little while.

Pros

Sweet cheap exotic, looks great

Cons

Hard to get in and out, small engine, needs more horsepower

35

Sweet Car — The Lotus Elise is a pretty sweet car for the money, looks expensive, but is no more than a base model corvette, not bad if u want a car that not everyone has and will stand out in a crowd. Biggest problem with this car is the getting in and out part, I'm short as it is and its still a pain i the ass to get in and out. Also there isn't anything too fancy anout the interior, pretty much aluminum.

Pros

Great looks. Light weight. VERY reasonable price. Handling. Handling. Handling.

Cons

Very tough for a 6'2" individual to get in and out of. Not many coats of paint, leading to easy scratches. Barren interior.

More Go-kart Then Car — Not crazy fast. Just sticks to the road like glue. Have 200+ more horses. You'll have to turn sooner or later.. I can wait. As the car weighs all of 1900lbs. the interior leaves something to be desired. Every imperfection of the road is felt. However, do to the weight, this is one of the best handling cars in the world and a blast to drive through twisties.
