Overall:

Great drivers car. It provides me an alternative to my 2019 GTS. When I feel like the receiving all the driving sensation the lotus has to offer, it is there. Plus, its very reasonably priced. I do have my mind on the final produced elise however. In my opinion, it is well worth it. But, test drive first. Ensure that getting in/out is not a deal breaker. Also, a bit hard on the back. But. That is what I was looking for - a race car.

Fasted Go-kart On Earth — It is an excellent vehicle to have, lots of fun and looks great. The maintenance is not terrible and gas is not bad as well (depending on how you drive). One dangerous part about driving is, people tend to take photos while driving and do not pay attention to the road. Overall, it is a great car.

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

Pros: It is an excellent weekend car. A blast to drive and handles better then any other vehicle. It is approximately 2,000 pounds making it very quick and brakes on a dime.

Cons: Sits very low, sedans even look big to this. Along with not having back seats, not that it is needed for something like this.

I Love It And Got Use To Getting In & Out Of It. — This is a totally awesome British sports car like no other on the road. If you love total performance yet civilized attitude and drivability in the city, this is the car. Once you're in the buckets, you could drive it for hundreds of miles and keep a smile on your face!

Pros: Performance, outstanding handling, design.

Cons: Difficult to get and out of.

The Pocket Rocket — Handling balance is amazing, steering feedback is fantastic and you forgive the hastle of getting into it as soon as you put your foot down or turn into the first high speed bend. The looks are pretty breath taking also

Pros: Handling, performance, braking

Cons: Getting in and out

Speed Freak — With a low roof and wide body work this flexable machie will love corners, with it's high speed it's ideal on motorways. At £25,000 brand new you are garanteed to get your money's worth with this car, it's easy to control with amazingly modern interior. Included is a built in CD player, burgler alarm, convertable roof and electric windows.

Pros: Attractive body and easy control
