That car is simply unbelievable. It looks absolutely scary. I'd be terrified to hit the throttle in that at 65mph.

Niceee! That yellow one is a lot nicer looking than the red one my ex bf raced against. I was trying to find what exact company makes it but I couldn't find it. Looks like a Lotus so i'm assuming its a BA Lotus

Yeah, definatly a Lotus. I can't believe there is that much power in that small of a car, that'* amazing. If I drove that, I would kill myself.

Harnessing this power is a chassis that is a far cry from the Lotus Elise from which it'* derived.
So its derived from a lotus but not actually built on a car currently available

I have a Diesel... with Mud tires hahaha hitting the throttle in that whist is raining at 70mph will likely give you the same OMG feeling in your pants haha

I will post a pic of the tires later with 20,000 KMS on them they are finished.
