On Friday, one of my managers at Google gave one of my co-workers and me his Lotus Elise for the weekend.

Lotus Elise

Yeah, that Lotus Elise; I couldn't believe it when I first heard it either!

And what an amazing work of engineering it is. I don't drive a stick-shift, so I just sat at the side and enjoyed the ride as we sprinted across the city on empty roads, taking off like a bullet at every green light. Before you know it, you're darting along at over 90 mph in a 45 mph zone. :D

On the way back to the Googleplex, we called my roommate, Aaron, and asked him if he wanted to take it for a quick spin. That made his day too. Check out the rest of the pictures.

Wow, what an experience...!
