    That thing is SO cool. It would be neat to turbo charge it, and add MoTeC, and a water/air intercooler!

    The old one is cooler.

    But, since it's a toyota enigne now - you can get a factory TRD s/c for the car...I wonder if lotus will warranty it.

    I saw it on speedchannel the other day on "worlds greatest car shows" the thing looked fantastic. Way better than the elise!

    They also had TVR's and few other exotics.

    Getting in and out of the Elise series 1 is not a very elegant procedure with the roof up. Once seated, there is no problem for a big guy like me (6'2" and 210 LB). Series 2 has a sill about one inch lower and that is marginally better. This Exige is as bad or worse as the series one. And you never can take the roof off. I'm fine with my series 2 and take the roof off as much as possible.
