To me it looks like Lotus Elise. I could be wrong though.

Nice catches by the way.

That is an Elise guys. The Exige is essentially the coupe version of the Elise(which is a roadster) and has a rear spoiler also. Nice catch ANmol! The Gallardo must be going real fast on that open stretch of road!

Tag heuer is celebrating its 150 years and presented the tesla roadster yesterday. SRK and karan chandhok were present at the ceremony . Was there myself and saw the car looks good and the interiors are decent aswell.

This is the same electric tesla which was featured in topgear's recent season right?
According to them, This is faster than a lotus elise.

yup! thats the one guys! thanks for clearing it out. also when i saw it had a CF roof on top, i think it looked pretty sick(in a good way..lol) And sounded monstrous! And it was outside Leela so iam guessing this has to be it.

Any one knows the damages for the same?
