Elise is a nice car... but I should go for the new Vauxhall VXR220..

2 liter Turbo, wich preduces 220HP.. from 0-60 in 4.2 sec..
that's pretty amazing for a Vauxhall..
it looks good as well (don't mind the color, think black):

ah yes... mass produce them and take away from the prestige of the automobile... perhaps they expand at a phenomenal rate and attempt to take over every sector of the automobile market by creating more models of cars that you can shake a stick at... a la BMW.

Excuse my sarcasm. I love the Elise.. also love how rare it is.

Don't be gay Todd. You'll have to buy 2 cars, the Elise (or whatever you buy for the summer) and a winter car. I say stick with the 330 and buy a bike.

Vauxell and Opel i believe are same company (1 owns the other), just one being more luxurious than the other....kinda like Toyota and Lexus...Lexus being more luxurious than Toyota....a lot...lol
