just surprised so many tourists at the Hoover Dam care to take pictures of a blandly styled Lotus!

p.s. that is Car & Driver not Road & Track. The source article was in last months C&D print mag.
Sorry,just realised my mistake!

Anything interesting in the magazine article ?
Not really. The performance data quoted is from the UK comparison where they chose it over 458 and GT2 RS. The conclusion was the same line from the video - the car is "a lady on the street but a freak in the bed".

OK, thanks. Won't try to find it then. Still looking forward for Road & Track to test the car and Motor Trend to do a proper comparo. It takes since the first tests done in the US by MT and Inside Line of the car !

I didn't understand the picking up the road kill and wine bottle reference but Not a bad article and video. The scenery is amazing out west.

It is amazing scenery.

Two years ago whilst in Arizona,on my way to Moab Nevada, I overtook an unmarked Police 4x4 at 125 mph
( we had been travelling for hours on no traffic roads) and the local Policeman let me off when he saw my UK paper license, a lovely man who lectured me on the consequences of death whilst speeding and the horrible phone calls back to family's in Europe. I actually thought I would be in Jail so I was more than pleased by his maturity.

But great territory in the National Parks with truly spectacular scenery and fast roads

I found a British accent to be very useful on my USA road trip. 41 states in three and a half weeks without using the free way. The trouble is I'm not allowed back as I'm probably a wanted man in virtually every state I rode through. I managed to get banged up in jail on my first day. Very exciting, I'd never had a gun pointed at my chest before!

Highway patrol, state police, county police, even park rangers(they carry guns too so watch out), yes I got to know them all. $2000 in speeding tickets.

A "cop" in Arizona told me that if I'd have been Italian, he would have just stuck me in jail as par for the course. Go figure!!

Btw, I found all Americans to be very polite and excellent hosts. Even the police, after they realised I wasn't Canadian (I bought one of the very first Yamaha R1's ever made from a Canadian dealership before crossing the border).
