  1. If you can take one home, which one is it going to be?

    I would take the Venom. It's faster, it has more passion because it has American engine, and it gets more h8 from you h8ers.

    The Lotus is better looking though.
     
  2. Ummm, the Elise GT1 also had an american engine.
     
  3. I personally think the Venom is better looking.
     
  4. For an engine, Lotus knew that the Elise's stock straight-4 engine would not be able to compete, and so it was initially decided that the car would use the 3.5L V8 engine out of the old Esprit racing car, attached to a Hewland six-speed sequential gear box. However testing showed that this engine was not as reliable as hoped. After installation in the production road car, the Lotus teams were left to decide whether or not to use the Lotus turbo V8 or opt for a Chevrolet LT5 6.0L V8 engine from the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, a car which Lotus had originally helped to develop when they had been owned by General Motors. Lotus further developed the LT5 by fitting it with a flat-plane crankshaft for the Elise GT1 Race car. With this, seven Elise GT1 racing chassis were built, going to factory teams GT1 Lotus Racing (run by Fabien Giroix's First Racing) as well as privateers GBF UK and Martin Veyhle Racing. The factory GT1 Lotus Racing team would be the only ones to opt for the Chevrolet V8 instead of the Lotus turbo unit.

     
  5. Elise GT1 please
     
  6. Hennessey Venom in a different color.
     
  7. Probably the Venom
     
  8. I couldn't choose anything other than the GT1.
     
  9. GT1, but the Venom is pretty cool.
     
  10. GT1. Avoid Hennessey build quality at all costs.
     
  11. even at a cost that will cost you more than the build quality will cost?
     
  12. I will just take a Bugatti Veyron.
     
  13. the GT1 was definately not the most reliable car around. but I can guarantee I can still get parts for it in 30 years.
     
  14. this. Both of those cars are fugly
     
  15. cant I just have an exige?
     
  16. Elise GT1 thanks
