This Modified Lotus Elise Sounds Evil

You'd never know that this noise is coming from a Toyota engine.

Given that it's powered by a Toyota-sourced inline-four, it wouldn't be too surprising if the Lotus Elise sounded pedestrian. But Lotus reworks the motor so even the stock Elise sounds pretty special. Add a set of Weapon R headers and a Larini muffler, though, and it sounds positively bonkers.

On the low end, it sounds grumbly and angry. Get the revs up and it's screaming. I already loved the Lotus Elise, but this video makes me want one even more.
