Well, a friend of mine has a Lotus Elise and I know how this
little thing handles. No, you absolutely can't compare it to a 
Delorean. never ! Not even with my new shocks I installed (the
adjustable ones form Ed Uding, very stiff now to keep the car 
on the road) it is even close to the Lotus.

But I can enjoy long distances in my Delo, while the Elise
is better for short trips and small roads, corners...
