Just drove a Lotus Elise

Wednesday I got to drive one of the new Lotus Elises at Barber Motorsports park...that is the best handling car I've ever driven, and I've had the chance to drive some very nice cars. 100 mph in HAIL and the car didn't complain at all. If the rear end slipped out a bit, just stay in the gas and it would hook right back up w/o whipping or anything bad at all. That's a fantastic car, and if you've got 40 grand burning a hole in your pocket, I'd definitely go pick one up.

And wtf is up with the TCCOA logo at the top of the page blinking into a Chevy bowtie?

I drove both Euro and US spec Elises, the main differences being side marker lights and the airbags. Sweet little car.
