There comes a limit though, and 3800lbs+ seems to be it for me. Besides, that Elise you linked to costs $75,000.

Well,it's been proven that car is one of the best handling cars in the world,Pulling 1.3 G on the skidpad,and nearly telepathic in it's agility given it's light weight,mid engine installation and suspension setup with an extremely low center of gravity.


75000$ is expensive,but it's the best handling car at that price,as for even more cornering ability,it requires a lot more money to buy it.

Are you saying that because a car has a V8 or larger engine that weight is completely irrelevant? Really? Seriously?
Well put it this way...The coyote 5.0 V8 used in the mustang already weighs in at 430 Lbs on it's own(Ford's own information),and the camaro's 6.2 is even heavier still,so that's a fair amount off weight to deal on the front end if handling is a concern.
