    :eek3:

    Thats about the best description of my experience. It was a torch red 2006 with 20,700 miles. They are asking $60,750 for it. Incredible amount of power at your disposal. I've never been able to roast the tires through three gears before (It was 34 outside at the time of the test drive, so im sure that didnt help much). This is the first car I've ever been scared of, so many ways to get yourself killed in it. That being said, I daily drive and track an E46 M3 competition, so the steering felt quite vague to me and it was not nearly as confidence inspiring.

    I may have to pick it up. :noes:

    There are two for sale in the STL area:
    06, 21000 miles, $60k
    06, 3300 miles, $64k

    If i was going to get one, I'd try to nab the one i test drove for $55k. I'm already building a S2000 powered Lotus 7 replica though, so I dont think i can justify ANOTHER weekend only track beast. :o

    Light engine.

    Good reliability.

    240 HP and when kept at 7000 RPM or above, works well as a track engine.

    There is no other engine in that weight class that will put that much power down.
