Got to drive one. Their Headquarters for N. America is in Ashland Oregon. They have a few different versions there. One with the K20A engine out of an Acura RXS Type-S and another with an Echotech. Either is insanely fast. They have a 300+ turbo version just to be totally silly.

That's less than 1,500Lbs with driver and fuel.
That's 5.0 Lbs/HP vs 9.5 for the Goat.
And those skinny tires are only dealing with about 1/4th the weight of a GTO.
And that wheelbase was what 84"?

Definitely need a helmet with bug shield though........Or dental floss.

These things make a Lotus Elise look like a Cadillac.

I'm surprised the Feds allow 'em to be imported.

A Formula One race car weighs 600 kg (1320 lbs), to put "lightweight" into perspective.
