I dont think Relibility is as bad as it used to be. People still buy them, But i think its more on how you take cars of your car rather then the companys reputation. I havens had a single problem with my SkyLine in the past 12 years, Its built like a fkn brick!

@ BR2+: You're right, a reputation sticks, especially a bad one.

Still, Conception of there infamous reliability hasnt changed, If any at all, Truth be told its gotten alot better though.

@ BR2+: Lotus was using their own engines in the 80s.

Lotus isnt exactly know foe its reliability..But then again, This isnt the 80s..

On the brighter side, having a Toyota engine, it should be reliable, so I would definitely have one.

I know that the Lotus Elise is the nimblest production car in the world, but $40,000 is a bit much for a car with less that 200 horsepower from a modified version of the engine found in a Toyota Corolla.

Yes it is, I believe just the 111R and SC were available to you guys in Elise trim at the time. With a starting price of $40,780. You also got the Exige's to, But those are 20k more, And even more impractical.

0-60Mph 4.3s
0-100Mpm 11.9s
1/4 Mile 13.2@105.2Mph
Top Speed 148.7Mph.

This is the version available in the U.S. right? The one with the 2ZZ Toyota engine? If so, then this needs to have the lap time from the Car and Driver Lightning Lap at VIR. It is of course a Mid-Engine, not front engine car. I believe the 1/4 should be quicker as well. That isn't a problem though, as I am sure I can find the stats from the Car and Driver website and then add it. :)

I am afraid your figures are way wrong !!
This site must do something about the mistakes made on many car models not only on the elise 111R..

Believe I remember Autocar conducting a 0-100-0 test on this car. It ran 0-60 = 4.8 and 0-100 = 12.3. The stats you have are way off and make no sense!

0-60mph is 4.4 tested by C&driver, so 0-100kmh should be around 4.7 or so.

The figures on this car are way off.

0-100 KMH is more like 5 secs
Engine location is Mid-engine
