Breath taking, Adrenaline rush.

by Sports Car Enthusiast from massachuesetts on Fri Dec 03 2010

The 1998 lotus is a rare sports car that offers supercar performance for a very reasonable price. This car other than a Hi-Torque chip offered by Lotus is stock. It is a very low, lean machine, nice lines its hard to takes your eyes off its yellow body. The cockpit appointed in black leather everywhere in the With a nearly 50/50 balanced body weight front to rear It handles the roads like its rides on rails. The steering very responsive. It does have a racing duel plate clutch which if you never have driven before may take a bit to get used to. But it does transfer the 375 hp from the engine to the wheels very,very, fast. It is a 5 speed manual shifting though the gears a bit heavy or little clunky, my only complaint and one I can easily live and drive with. It accelerates like a bat out of___and screams like a banshee Its 3.5 liter V8 has a low, throaty sound and with twin turbos its power doesn't let up. It will go over 170mph. I would highly recommend this car to anyone that enjoys a great riding car. Be aware that you will be asked many questions about it by many strangers at traffic stops, gas stations, actually any where you go. If you get the chance to drive one ...enjoy : )

Dream Machine!!

by jeff from Ontario, Canada on Sun May 01 2016

Loved this car forever and living up to all my expectations. It' fast, beautiful and a big time headturner, all for a modest cost. When I first bought it, I had to drive it home 550km(300miles), it was a most pleasurable trip (comfortable) no aches or pains! For a car almost 20yrs old, very tight, no rattles, instant response, the ultimate pleasure toy! Love to drive my affordable exotic!
