Funny though, it has the same power, weight and features as my 20 year-old Corvette. You'd have hoped things would have improved in 20 years.
I bet the Lotus's handling, road holding, and ride quality are in a different league to the Corvette's, however.
Have you test-driven the C8 yet? Way better than the last Elise that I drove. Like, lightyears ahead. This new one looks fun tho...
I own a C8 and I would not say its light years ahead.
The steering feedback is no where near as good as an exige.
You cannot feel the tyres a much as an exige.
It feels much heavier than an exige on cornering, however doesnt have much roll. (Mag-ride here)
It is very planted and corners well.
It has alot of power, but is NA to somewhat lacking down low torque (as expected)
Seating position is about equally good.
The c8 is a big vehicle, and doesnt have the nimble feel of an exige.
The emira is temping for me.
I think it looks marginally better.
I could get a manual!!!!!
Power to weight is nearly the same so both should be very quick, but the emira will have more low down torque most likely.
Using hydraulic steering vs electric should give it a better steering/road feel.
Down side is that it will be alot more expensive for the same power to weight most likley
