WTF, who erased that new 2011 Lotus Elise that was on here?

How come this car is quicker from 0-200k than an Exige S PP (ie 240hp). Is it something to do with the different supercharger/gear ratios or is it a typo?

The tire switch also reflected in the poor performance in the C/D's 08 VIR test. The SC lapped the circuit with a disappointing 3'16.6", a good 7s slower than the A048 equipped 06 Elise which has 20 less hp.

sportauto critic the steering which tend to understeer at turning into turns. The comfort package adds weight reduce perfromance and the stock Yokohama Advan Neovan tires suck according to sportauto, the Yokohama AO 48 mounted on the 2-Eleven in the same test are lightyears better.
sportauto cirit that with the comfort pack the Elise SC is slower than a Boxster S and the price in Germany of the Elise SC is only 2500Euro away from the Boxster S... next to be more exotic the Elise SC has nothing that speaks for it to buy it and not a Boxster S. For pure track fun the 2-Eleven offers much more for the same price..
