Lotus Elise is coming to Canada

The folks at John Scotti Motors in Montreal have made it happen. They have done all the work needed to get the Lotus Elise legal for the Canadian market. This lightweight, mid engined sports car is powered by a 190 hp 1796 cc 4 cylinder made by Toyota, which should deliver uncharacteristic reliability from a British performance car. While 190 hp may not seem overwhelming in today's world, in this case it is more than enough to propel the 1984 lb Elise to 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds! Thanks to it's light weight, low center of gravity and near perfect balance offered by the mid engine placement, the Elise is said to handle like a formula car.

Now if i can just get my hands on one for an afternoon...
