Where's The Power

  1. 250hp is a lot for a Lotus, but in all reality I wish they'd bring back the Esprit V8.
     
  2. Some people just don't get Lotuses at all.

    The idea of a Lotus is to make a lightweight and balanced car that will perform better on racetracks than many cars with twice as much power.
     
  3. "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."

    Seeing the Evora (production version of the M250), it seems somebody killed Chapman or his credo? It weighs about 1350kg. Almost the double of the first Elise...
