I think when you consider that, in GT5, there was a paint chip called "X-Power Grey" from the MG stable, this car would be in the game...

I think this needs a bit more information(and a better picture), like the fact that "Sometimes" it doesn't have a rear wing.

Though it still looks just as good! i feel like its gonna become a classic. its rare, intresting, and certainly beautiful.

The non-wing version is the less powerful SV isn't it?...

I vaguely remember reading in EVO magazine of Rowan Atkinson's thoughts about the car. Im not exactly sure if he actually brought one or it was merely a road test.

The car looked a bit shoddy but I liked the idea of MG building such a nutjob car and also offering a nitrous kit with the car. Shame that was never realised.
 
That's, uh, one way of putting it.

To be fair, the only real part of the Lotus left is the tub itself, and even that is quite heavily modified. Everything fore and aft is bespoke.

Of course, using the tub does still technically make it a Lotus.

Fiat Punto headlights. Classic.
There's a surprising amount of FIAT in there actually - the rear lights and brakes are from the FIAT Coupe (last week's Want, by sheer coincidence)!
