mmm lovely little things, maybe this one ends up in Japan es well... I believe a few road cars are there.

wonder how such G12 drives (street version) compared to a lotus elise/exige s2 models.

I guess the lotus will feel luxury ? compared to the G12, they look really light to the bone :-) I guess they are pretty noisy inside? pure thrills ;-)

Not really sure you can compare a 1960s pioneering race/road mid-engined GT car with something conceived 30-40 years later..

I mean you can - but you'll end up with more questions than answers surely!!?

true, but most have upgraded suspension things, like bushings/baljoints/coilovers and or other wheel/tires, most have been upgraded I guess.
