  6. Re: You like this don't you...

    No, no, no, no, I don't like it. I LOVE IT. I think this car could easily produce 900 bhp with a few modifications, it's just that no one has tried (or at least I don't know if anyone has).
     
  7. Re: You like this don't you...

    I dont know about 900hp, but a friend of mine who has one is going to have 450hp soon with a race ecu and other small stuff. i gotta love turocharged cars, they respond so well to mods.

    Who said they didnt look good in black?!

  9. Re: A respectable car!!!

    I had one of these toy with me at the lights a while back. The guy was obviously having fun - we exchanged waves, and then he started revving - he dumped the clutch and lit up the rear tyres - so much damn smoke - and I had the roof off! He lost me at about 40mph. I caught up with him about a half mile later - he grinned, saluted, and launched off again!

    I know of another Le Mans convoy which included one of these and a F355 - the Lotus hit 180mph and outdragged the Ferrari on every occasion that they opened the cars up
     
  10. Re: A respectable car!!!

    this is probly more than respectable. it has almost everything you can think of and it doesnt cost 300k. maybe around 100k, but its still cheaper.<!-- Signature -->

    Are you kidding me? The most expensive corvette out there now, the ZO6 is like 50 grand and it'll beat a lotus no problem.

  13. Re: Hey all you rich people out there

    In 1998 a buddy and me drove with on Autobahn (Berlin/Germany). It was amazing! The Lotus is truely a real sportscar - loud, hard and just divine. But itŽs not really an everyday-supercar!<!-- Signature -->

    But who wants a Corvette? They suck. Lotus is much better in every way. So it doesn't run 0-60 quite as fast or handle quite as well. At least you have the assurance that you aren't driving around in a piece of shit that will fall apart in 3 years. Gotta love American 'units', huh?<!-- Signature -->

    This car is still special. Had Chapman still been alive he would have liked it. Chapman was never very sentimental about his cars and only favoured the ones that paid for Lotus to develop their Formula One cars. Still both are gone now.

    As for the Vett out performing the Esprit.....um...NO!
    Put the two cars on the track and there is only going to be one winner. The Esprit.

    Actually the z06 does beat this.<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. If your gonna spend over 100k on a car, make it worth your while, these cars cost about in the lower 80's to high 90's for one of these. they are great cars, don't buy that expensive corvette, it won't be able to match the shear awesomeness of this car!

    I love Lotus, but the Esprit is everything Colin Chapman didnt want in a car. It's waaaaaaay too heavy, too big, too luxery, too expensive. It simply doesnt come anywhere near the Elise, Exige, old Elan, M250, 340R, etc Where's my Lotus minimalist design?!?!

    Dont get me wrong, I do love this car, it looks great, but I think Lotus really screwed up and should never have made it like they did.<!-- Signature -->
