    The ferrari would have no chance to beat this car in a race, and this car gets more looks because there are more ferrari's in the US<!-- Signature -->

    This is hard they are 2 very nice cars. But why have a Lotus when there is a Ferrari.

    I'll have to conceed the TVR Speed 12, which kicks ass by the way, but when you say "we", I assume you mean the British people, and as I recall, I think that Germans made the engine on the McLaren.

    Fully road tested both cars here they are side by side.

    0-60 - Lotus - 4.4 - F355-F1 - 4.6
    1/4 mile Lotus - 12.8@111.8 mph - F355-F1 - 13.0@109.7mph
    0-100-0 - Lotus - 14.9 seconds - F355-F1 - 15.6
    0-1 mile - Lotus - 32.1@158.4mph - F355-F1 - 32.6@154.1mph
    Skidpad G - Lotus - 0.98G - F355-F1 - 0.98G
    Slalom speed - Lotus - 70.0 mph -F355-F1 - 70.8 mph
    Top Speed - Lotus - 179.4 mph - F355-F1 - 177.6 mph.

    Now the Lotus at the time of the test was $84,920 and the Ferrari F355 F1 was $137,725. now i admit the Lotus has a outdated apperance but when they finnaly got rid of the Turbo 4 and got a Twin V8 this car kicks ass !! and its cheaper then the F355.

    They are both great cars, but when it comes down to reality, Price Vs. Horsepower, the Lotus is on top

    Not to good at winning the "break off and become your own best country in the world" game. But than again, there's only one player there...

    You forced me.

    I love the 355, but in my friend's convoy to Le Mans last year, there was an Esprit V8 and a F355 Berlinetta, and the V8 roasted the F355 at each and every occasion. For those who know, the drive from Calais through Rouen to Le Mans offers plenty of decent driving, and they had a number of 'skirmishes' *S*

    That all said, much as I love Lotus, (wouldn't give up my Elise for the anything right now) I'd have to take the 355 over the Esprit. But it'd be a tough choice....
     
  14. Re: Lotus Esprit V8 VS Ferrar F355 F1

    Ferrari?? Ya right! Lotus all the way baby. This car's got it all, beautiful straight lines, power and speed. I think this thing could put 900 bhp with a few modifications.
     
  15. Re: Lotus Esprit V8 VS Ferrar F355 F1

    if there was no price difference, i'd pick the ferrari....the lotus looks just a little too outdated. However, it does have better performance, and is cheaper, so it's a hard decision.
