    It weighs significantly more than the Mk1 Elise on which it is suposed to be based. It weighs around 950Kg compared to less than 800kg for the original Elise. That extra bulk can be accounted for by the fact that it's bigger in all dimensions and has a big 3.5 litre V8 with a pair of huge turbos bolted on.

    The extra weight is more than compensated for by the 575bhp in the back though!

    Well I guess that would be catered for by the sizeable downforce, far wider track, and sticky tyres more than TWICE as wide as those of an original 'Liz.

    Driving that thing must be incredibly hard, but it probably puts up unbelievable numbers.

    Yeah ... this was at GFOS a couple of years back. Theres only 1 road going GT1 in the world ... this one used to be a bright shade of blue. Recently they modified it and upped the boost to create over 700bhp. Read an article about it in Evo a long time ago. Apparently its one of the hardest cars to get into ... not surprising
