    C43 & Lotus no plates shrunk.jpg
    Two completely differnts cars but both give the same silly grin every time you get in to them.
    Neither would I change, the C43 with all its refinement yet power which pulls nicely all the way to the limiter (I'm guessing.... stopped a tad before the limiter) combined with the tone from the sports exhaust.

    But then the wee Lotus, a lot cheaper, nowhere near as fast but get it on the twisties and she is off, basic engineering and design (no frills) and the car feels like a go kart round the bends, harder she's pushed the more she grips.

    for everything else the Merc. :)

    . . If its grin-factor then the Lotus all day long.
    But both offer vast amounts of different types of pleasure I'm sure. (that just reads all wrong!) ;)

    Pretty much sums it up to be fair :) Even with the fancy 4WD of the Merc

    Not seen many c43’s on the road, looks great. I can imagine the lotus is literally like a go kart. Two great machines.
