Nice style but it deserves better performance

Discussion in '2000 Lotus Elise 111S' started by yungcarfreak, Jun 12, 2003.

  1. It definitly looks great and its definitly an exotic but do you think the hp, top speed, and acceleration should be modified?

    hp - no
    topspeed - no
    acceleration - no

    I've driven my stock elise over 25,000 miles, and it's still a thrill each and every time I drive it. Don't be fooled by figures.

    thats what the elise 190 is for <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> also, thier proportional to the weight.

    This car isnt about top speed, acceleration or insane horse power. Its about one thing. Fun. Its a f*cking fast, spartan go-kart. And is easily one of the coolest cars ever built. I'd take this over a Diablo anyday...

    Some cars deceive you when you drive them. I once drove an 89 mustang 5.0 and hit 70 mph without feeling it. But with a car as small as the elise, your feedback is tremendous for the figures, especially with the top off. Besides, hitting 120 anywhere except the track would give anyone a thrill.

    actually, i would take the diablo, sell it, then buy about 10 elises

    This car has excellent preformance for it's price. Its under $40,000
    for crying out loud!

    It's not built to be a speed demon or a fast accelerator, it's built to take on a track like no one's business. Which it does.
     
  10. Re: Re:

    This car is fun, so why spoil it by putting a bigger engine in to ruin it? You can use it on the road on the way to work and have fun, and take it on the track,,,,, and have more fun. It's pretty cheap too!
     
  11. Told!
