    Link: The World`s Fastest Lotus? - Too much engineering to wrap my head around, but I certainly appreciate the result. What an awesome Lotus!

    I saw this last week. What impressed me the most was that they made it genuinely usable on the road. He says that it`s impractical, but that`s a matter of fuel economy, storage space and suchlike. It`s clearly very driveable and not just on a drag strip. That`s very impressive for such a highly turbocharged car with such a high power to weight ratio.

    Would have been better if it wasn`t hosted on one of YouTube`s slow-as-crap servers. Why can`t they put the all the hi-res stuff on the good servers?

    I know an ex-Lotus director. He was not too complimentary about the cars they produced.

    I`m fairly sure it`s actually useful though, unlike big spoilers stuck on as ornaments. That much power in a light RWD car - you`re going to need downforce at the rear to maintain traction.

    Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious :)

    When was he a director? I`ve read that reliability issues are a thing of the past.

    I`m highly impressed by the car but amused at the lack of female posters here.

    To me, this is not a Lotus...it`s merely a hot rodded Toyota Celica GT...yawn.
