Where's The Power

Discussion in '2000 Lotus M250 Concept' started by NB_Jaguar_XJ220, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. 250 hp in this thing.........Should be up with real supercars (600-700 hp) its dissapointing to see a Lotus with this much power

    Take it you're American?
    You see modern Lotus' don't have big power but concentrate on making very very light cars with great handling.
    U have to realise this isn't a car to go up against the Diablos of this world but is(or would have been) a direct rival to a Porsche Boxster..........and it slays that so it would be a job well done.
    250bhp is a lot for a new modern day Lotus<!-- Signature -->

    How can you bash lotus? Have you ever even driven one? The level of communication between the car and driver is unparalled in any car that i have ever driven. It is so light that braking is instantaneous and handling is the best in the world. Since you are the european car expert and all you should know that to drive a lotus you got to be good or else you will look like a fool out there. And just letting the european car expert know the best lotus was the 79 and i doubt that was the one you saw.<!-- Signature -->

    250 hp is alot for such a light car. It would've easily kicked the Boxster's butt. On the other hand, the rest of the car is so good, that it could take on much more expensive cars, if it had more power. A 3 liter V6 should be able to reach 300 hp.<!-- Signature -->

  9. Re: Where's The Power

    Lotus' dont need power. They are som eof the lightest cars around and they are some of the best (if not the best) handling cars on the market, anywhere. Lotus has stuck with this principle fo some time now, and unfortionitly they bring their least atractive car voe rto the states.<!-- Signature -->

    keep your head in your ass.
    This world is already full of dumbasses...
     
  11. Re: Where's The Power

    No power?? Man who cares if it "only" has 250hp, look at he weight and the 0-60, 2200lbs and 5.0 secs, by the way I've never seen a Lotus with more then 400hp and they can pull 3.0 secs 0-60. No power??? Dont make me laugh.
     
  12. Re: Where's The Power

    I got to give it to Lotus. Once again they do a splendid job. I would love to see a 450hp version of this thing. One thing I can say Lotus can make ANY car move despite the low horsepower!!!! Hell they give cars with twice there horsepower a run for there money!
     
  13. Re: Where's The Power

    It's amazing how Lotus pulls out the high speeds with the low HP and low weight. If only Viper could do the same...
     
  14. Re: Where's The Power

    Little power? Hello! It's a LOTUS!!!!! Knock knock.....
    Name 5 roadcars lotus has produces all by them selves that god over 250 bhp standard!!!!!
    I can name ONE!
    Dissapointed to see a lotus with so "little" power! That statement comes from someone that never has seen a Lotus!
    Get a grip and stop to state your meenings when you arnt 100% sure of what you are talking about!
    Oink oink! ;-)
     
  15. Re:

    yes, look at the 0-60. This has all the power it needs. Must everything be an all-out supercar??

    I like the looks, too. A beefier Elise: it's good for what ails you.

  17. Re: Where's The Power

    I think allot of you are unaware of Chapman’s philosophy. I'll see if I can dig up his actual credo. What some of you seem to be missing is that when you create a car that is incredibly light and agile you are creating a car that will carry more speed into and out of the corners.

    The Elise 111s with 156BHP is quicker around the Top Gear proving circuit than both the Ferrari 575 and the AM Vanquish. What this proves is that it is not rough power that creates a great sports car.

    Some of you are saying that you are disappointed that the M250 will only have 250BHP or 260BHP if you believe the new code for it. What you also may wish to consider is that it is BHP per tone that counts. With reports that this car is going to way only around 1000kg it is likely that you will see a power output of 300-350bhp per tone.
     
  18. Re: Where's The Power

    i maust say. u bloody legond
     
  19. Re: Where's The Power

    more power= more weight
    more weight = bad if you are Lotus.
    U R NOOB.

  22. Re: Where's The Power

    ya ok id love to see your car race a lotus. im sure that if u turn ur steering wheel a foot, ur ford pinto wuldnt move at all. dont deny lotus it can kick some pretty nice cars's asses.
     
  23. i think lotus is super. and 250hp is actually pretty good. faster than some of the common ars you see today.
     
  24. It's not their fault, they just know more horespower is better.

    Lotus is amazing
     
  25. sad sad misguided little dumbass. GROW A BRAINSTEM!!!
