Test drive both cars, then make a pick on which seems more practical/suitable for your needs. I would go for the Corvette, but it would be a tough choice. When you drive a car like the Elise, then something bigger and heavier, you can feel the difference and the latter feels significantly more clumsy.

Also, you should keep your options open...There are many other cars you could get, for almost the same price, you could get a new M3 .

Test drive the Vette, wait a week and test drive the Lotus. Wait another week and make your choice. Both are stellar vehicles.

The elise isn't practical, so I'd buy the corvette. Besides, the vette is quicker above 50mph, and quicker around a track.

...no, they don't. Sorry son.

The Lotus is a far better car. Handling wise, technologically, in balance and power output for what its under the hood.

Lotus > (redneck) Corvette.
Plain and simple.

OH...heres a good 'Vette video.
