Bradford, UK

(from Lotus Press Release) The prototype Lotus ?Circuit Car? will run for the first time at the oldest motorsport venue in the world, the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb, during the Centenary celebrations.

Based on the strong, stiff and lightweight aluminium chassis first seen on the Lotus Elise, and
weighing in at around 650 kg, the single-seater car (with an option of two seats) has been designed and engineered solely for Track Days and Club Racing. The prototype car was designed and built in an incredible eleven weeks and production versions are scheduled to be built from mid 2006 in the world class production facilities at the Lotus headquarters in Hethel Norfolk.

As if Lotuses weren't crazy enough. This would be the "XTr3ME!!!1" version. I'll take 3. :thumbsup:

:woot: Only disadvantage I can see is that it is a circuit car only.

With some modifications the UK will allow it on the street, I am sure :p . You only need to drive with UK plates then. :lol:
Nice car! :thumbsup:
