Too much engineering to wrap my head around, but I certainly appreciate the result. What an awesome Lotus!

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

I think it`s awesome when a gearhead accelerates so fast, he starts giggling...

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

Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious :)

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

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.

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 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.

Over 600 WHP coming from a 1.8L motor... Very impressive...
