If they import this into the US bet it adds 500lbs to meet safety standards sadly. Lotus people have to be having wood right now though as this would likely be similar in concept to an Elise.

Poor argument as hp/lbs is what matters and translates into power, braking and handling. Maybe Subie should hire Gordon.....

I could post some text, but this video will suffice. Iím down with the light weight sports car even with less power.

ah german weather so much better than english. i annoyed a bunch of germans on reddit trying to figure out if it was possible for me to buy a car in germany and just use it on the ring and then sell it because they were concerned about all the rules i might break and all the many ways they wanted to tell me i couldn't do it, but eventually i think i figured out a way that would actually work, am warming up to the idea of that being a 2020 project.
