Tiny engine

  1. This has such a small engine, its only a inline 4 cylinder! what the hell were the makers thinking, i thought when i saw this surely it had a V8 or V10, i am very dissapointed
     
  2. Re: Tiny engine

    But the engine is from a Lotus Esprit.
     
  3. Re: Tiny engine

    Wait what would be the point of them putting a huge engine in this car, especially if they can get over 250 hp and lb ft of torque out of a small inline 4?(smaller engine=lighter car)
     
  4. Re: Tiny engine

    how can a 4 be small for a Lotus when they only make one major car without one (esprit V8 others have been made but ended production)
     
  5. Re: Tiny engine

    I am very disappointed in you, 260HP for 2.1L, if they put that kind of work into a 4L we would have 500HP easily. this engine is excellent
