    Er, no it isn't.

    And technically, there are 3 Engine/trans choices.

    4 pot AMG turbo and double clutch auto
    6 pot Toyota Supercharged with manual or auto (single clutch).

    A lot of car for 60k

    I probably should have made things a little clearer. I was referring to Andy's link in post No.2. The yellow Evija that has been doing the publicity rounds.

    It will be good to see it physically. I thought it looked quite tall from the photo of the roof line. I've had 3 Elises and the big draw for me was the basic convertible aspect of them of just whipping the roof off and throwing it in the boot. I can't remember driving any of them with the roof up so that in itself would make me look a bit wider if I was in the market for something similar.

    I've also had 3 Esprits (I think you get a lot of bang for your buck with Lotus) and would have another S3 Turbo in a heartbeat. A V8 or GT3, not so much.
