2000ps (1972hp)
1254 lbs of torque
1680kg
200mph plus.
Sub 3.0s to 60 (well, naturally... 1900+hp will see to that)
0-186mph in under 9 seconds. :eek: :D


Oh, and it's fully electric with a 250 mile range. Battery capable of full charge in 7 minutes (but can't yet due to current available charging technology)

Powertrain developed by Williams Advanced Engineering. Full carbon construction. Track mode raises a huge wing and increases the diffuser size, so more downforce than weight.

And yours, for the low, LOW price of £1.5-2 million.

And by the way, there's only going to be 130 of them.

My first thoughts.

Wrong Lotus badge. Needs the green and yellow one. Also not entirely sure on the looks, definitely striking, definitely functional.

Everything else... Yes please. Doors and interior have more than a little McLaren about them.

If I'm a very good boy can I have one for Christmas?

I agree with Clarkson though. I'd rather have an Esprit V8 turbo :D

I think it looks absolutely stunning. I love that it even has an 'e' in the door design too. Unfortunately, electric is definitely the way forward now so i guess we need to learn to embrace it.

I see turbotoaster finally finished ;)

There was a brief article on the news this morning about 350kw chargers (they were at a service station near milton keynes) rollout

8 mins for 200 mile range charging speed with compatible vehicles (the audi etron parked alongside was 150kw max, so the tech isnt really in the vehicles yet it seems)
