This unique car gets better and better with time.
The story of this Lotus, which is currently on sale inAustralia for $99,999, proves that some things can actually get better with age.What started out as a 2001 Lotus Elise was given a full body conversion later on,becoming a fully-carbon-fiber Lotus Exige. The ultra-light sports car must havebeen fast enough by this point, but its owner didn't think so: the Elise/Exigewas given an Audi 2.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, producing amanic 550 horsepower.
The Audi-powered Lotus was also awarded with a new six-speedtransmission, improved suspension, new brakes and lightweight SSR wheels. Considering the premium charged for cars down-under, the $99,999 asking priceis actually quite the bargain.
