    Ha! That's so true...when I first saw the bugeye WRX, I thought "Who the hell would buy that its so ugly." Now I have one parked in my garage.

    Yeah, I see quite a few also..

    For $50k there are other options like a C6, M3, Z4, etc... but the handling of the Lotus is unrivaled.

    I think that car looks pretty nice. I still would rather have a Espirit.

    I think they are pretty sharp looking, but im waiting for Matchbox to take claims to the design. they are very small. the one i had a run in with had an "older" gentlemen operating it, mid life crisis car i believe. (no offense to you "older" 40+ people)

    it's a 220bhp K20A from the DC5 Type R (RSX-R), it also comes in a 160bhp K20A3 (RSX Base) engine. Then as an option you can add a Jackson Racing supercharger for either 275bhp or 300bhp. sick car.

    when i worked for the car dealership the owner had a buddy in philly who had a 1997 white pearl lotus espirit...

    i got to fly out to philly and drive it all the way back to pittsburgh. best day of my life, and ive been in love ever since. i wouldnt trade another car in the world for one of those.

    maybe there are a lot better but it really hits home when you drive something like that.
