    fastest on track or in speed? on track- lotus all the way but in top speed- S2000= 246km/h, MINI cooper S= 220km/h, Elise 111S= 227km/h, Ausi S3= 237km/h, 2003 Impreza STi= 235km/h
    so fastest track car yes but speed? sorry mate

    talking about fastest i-4 production cars....i think Evo8 would be a good fight for this little bugger...
  9. Re: fastest I-4s around?

    I just want to note it is a Toyota not a Lotus engine, same as Celica i think
  10. Re: fastest I-4s around?

    And how can Lotus make the fastes I-4 around when they use the Rover K-Series engine?
  11. Re: fastest I-4s around?

    whats the skidpad?
  12. Re: fastest I-4s around?

    1.3 g's is the most it pulled around the Nurburgring.
  13. Re: fastest I-4s around?

    The problem with that 1.3G is that it is prolly on slicks. A normal elise with road tires will do about a 1.0G. This has a better stiffer setup do I would say maybe 1.1G would be possible with the Exige.
  14. Re: fastest I-4s around?

    The toyota engine will be used in the US version of the elise (and yes it is the same as used in the celica) the K-series is used in the elise and exige as with many other british sports cars such as caterhams, MGF/TF etc...... And also, straight line speed is nothing if you cant keep it around the corners even in the real world the exige would easily match soomething of supercar pase e.g. a 355. Whoever quoted the top speed figure has something to think about, look at the 0-60 times of each of those cars quoted and if i am correct the are all over half a second slower to sixty and have longer top gears so the exige would keep on accelerating faster and top out faster.

    no best inline four is Honda with the F20C engin thats in the S2000, producing 240bhp from 2 liters. no to mention the K20A motor(also from Honda) found in the ITR, just tuned, it produces 250bhp.
