Not any real info to add, just excited as well. I am desperately trying to talk my roomate into buying one. He is dead set on a G35 coupe. Similar price, and a whole lot more exclusive club. Besides with Lotus handling, Toyota reliability, and a car this beautiful, what else could you ask for?

Oh yeah, he is 6'5" and 245lb., I think I'm fighting a loosing battle!

HAHAHA, the only this I don't like about the car is that it has less than 200 HP, which just bothers me, idk why, it just does. Lotus should of turbo'ed it like the Esprit or just made it NA 280 HP

No need to force induct this car, it's power to weight ratio is fine where it is.

They go for about $40K, and at that price have to be the most fun for the dollar around!! [LOOK]

I sat in the lotus at the car show, they are very nice, suprisingly, they have a lot of leg room, but really low to the ground, you like stare at the hood.
