Never mind initial post ...
I'm with John , long wheel base Vauxhalls were the perfect trainer vehicles to Elise/exige ..
Fact is ... In the middle of a wet night in the black country you could drift them continuously for several laps of any roundabout...
And at a safe 15/20 mph speed too ..
Mock if you wish ,but muscle motor memory is built on practice..

If you think that the standard car was drifty, you should have tried the couple of limos that were floating around, but didn't get produced officially!!! ;)

Still not sold when I looked. I think the Lotus market is very slow at the moment :/
