The thing that kills me about these is the fact that they only get about 40mpg highway...what exactly do you gain from driving one of these in a world when B and C segment vehicles are all targeting and achieving that mark? I mean, the thing is just ridiculous from a size and practicality standpoint and yet it doesn't even get better mileage than the new Hyundai Elantra...those little things should be besting the Prius for fuel economy, not playing rival to sedans.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Those may scream "rich old dude with too much time/money", but they're a design marvel and far too unique. They focus on aerodynamics/low weight/engineering/handling in an era when everybody else just kept getting bigger/heavier/louder/stronger/faster. Anything from Lotus commands total respect just due to their train of thought alone, those cars are special.
