Is this the best Lotus in the world ? I think so !

3.5 DOHC 32 valve V8 twin turbo

Hewland TGT200 6 speed helically cut sequential 'box

Dry weight 980KG

Speedline Magnesium alloys - 11x18 front, 13x18 rear

AP 6 pot front and rear brakes

Carbon fibre body

Performance figures :

0.7 bar boost = 575bhp and 425 lb ft torque
2 bar boost = 785 ~ 815 bhp

0-60 = fast
0-100 = f###ing fast
top speed = 235mph

Technically and on performance I think your probably right Matt, but I don't think you'd want to use it to commute everyday even though it appears to be road registered.

Only 8 GT1's were ever built. 7 were made for the FIA GT races and this one is the only road going version in the world ! There are rumours of a spare chassis beating around though and that someone (maybe in Holand) is building a road version using as many genuine parts as possible.

I think there are some more pics of that GT1 in the gallery?

A great car - it used to be the ride of choice in Need for Speed 2! :D
