This car is background for the Smoking Tire youtube channel. This is all of the car that shows. What is this? I can't make out the name on the back.

I read the article. Based on Elise and Exige. I am just have to admit I called myself a car enthusiast but really knew nothing about Lotus before the Emira came out last year. It's just a very cool company doing very interesting projects in the car world. Gotta have one.

Just to be clear, Lotus has nothing to do with the Hennessey cars.

Not kind of. Completely based on an Elise chassis. New rear subframe and drive train. Stretched body. Registered as a Lotus Elise, thus street legal.
.
I'm sticking with "kind of."

Yes, it's "completely based on an Elise chassis," except there are MAJOR changes (or outright swaps) to the body, chassis, suspension, engine, transmission, instrumentation, brakes, and just about everything else.

I bet it used stock Elise doors and windshield and headlights though.
