I took these a few months ago, and never knew what it was. Every time the driver saw me pull out the camera, he'd speed off REALLY quickly. EDIT: it's Qvale Mangusta

Man I saw a Lotus Elise in Lexington the other day after the ball game. First time I ever saw one of those in person. IDK what that thing is tho. Looks sweet.

Re: What car is this?

You want to rent an Elise? Check out Enterprise. I think they rent them here in SoCal for $200/150mi a day i think. I don't mind renting one for a whole weekend just to say I've driven one :)

The Mangusta looks better from the back and that angle. It does look like a fish up front. The side view of the coupe looks like a modified Corvette.

I know you can rent them here in vegas through enterprise. Better then just renting the vipers, zo6's, and other extoics through the small places/
