There is one very interesting detail about the Elise's new engine that isn't mentioned in the article. It's a V4 (read that on numerous germans websites).
I like the concepts Lotus displayed at the show, but i agree that this is a hard turn in their philosphy. Nearly as crucial as the fact that Ferrari doesn't offer a manual for the 458 (despite their promise to offer a manual option "as long as there is at least one person who wants it". Breaking with your core values seems to pe a common thing these days).
