10/10 Top Car And Track Genius ! — 2004 elise 135R Absolutely superb ! there are faster cars in the world but the cornering speeds of an elise on semi-slicks are mind blowing. If you are expecting comfort, forget it. If you want to achieve rediculous speeds on winding country roads or for a track toy get one !

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its all about the handling !!!

Cons: nothing

Everyone Should Have One Of These In The Garage For Weekend Drives And Track Days! — Was blessed and lucky to win this gorgeous Green and Gold baby in a phone competition! Owned it for 1 year, drove it once a week on weekends. Pulled crowds + handled like a dream. Sold it and had a nice deposit for an appartment!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Brilliant performance and handling, bum-to-the-road motoring

Cons: Very impractical, can't park it in dodgy areas!

This Car Is Made Of Awesome — This car is awesome. It is just plain stupid fast, and really fun to drive. I got to drive one for a bit in boston and I had a blast. It is also one of the coolest looking cars I have ever seen. I cant wait to get a chance to drive one again

Pros: everything

Cons: expensive

Lotus Elise 111s 2004 — There should be a rating for smile/grin factor, it would be 10/unbelievable. When I first drove one at sped around a corner, it just kept on sticking to the road, and in the wet, once you have perfected it, you can quite easily drift it, good fun around roundabouts. The only downside is the stone chips you get at the front and sides due to it being so low.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Getting into it on an icey or snowy morning going to work

Spirited — Amazing car, not the most well built but who cares. I might not be as fast as say a Lambo but is still faster then any other car, and the handling is a dream. It is a straight rack and pinion set so there is no assisted steering. This car can turn on a dime. Along with steering is also brakes, if you barely tap on the brakes you will be stop faster then you can blink.

Pros: Incredibly fun and want to drive it forever

Cons: The car is not very well made, for instance the shifter broke  off and one of the gear cables had broken. All pretty easy fixes but the parts cost a lot of money.

Pure Drivers Car. — The Lotus has no frills. It has no power steering, no electric windows and no traction control. But it handles amazing. This car is pure driving pleasure. My car is a 2004 111R which has 180 bhp and is a limited edition with the gold wheels all round.

Pros: Super little exotic!

Cons: very low, hard to get into and out and heats up like a bitch!
