Weighing in at 2,380 lbs, this car is aboutas light as a Miata, with handling that has been praised by members of theautomotive press (hint: search for Top Gear videos).

FYI, this is a Noble M12. I chose "Lotus Elise" on this website because the dropdown box did not have the choice of "Noble" or "Other Makes". Sorry for any confusion.

goo goo - no worries. A lot of guys here are very familiar with that. A lot of M12/M400's have been sold and bought through this website. I bought mine from a member here. Best of luck with the sale...

I suppose it could, but I've never tried taking it to a Ford dealer for servicing. Personally, I would recommend taking it to a good independent shop, preferably one that is used to higher end cars, because an independent shop would be more willing to spend some time on it and take care of it, while the big dealerships are more accustomed to doing 500 oil changes on the same models day after day.
Having said that, most of the major components like the engine, alternator, etc. and the interior switchgear are from Ford, so you can easily get parts and the parts are less expensive than other exotic cars.
