I suppose it's better to post here, unless you have too much information that need to be in a seperate thread, it's okay. =)

Do what you see is better, and we'll see about it after you post. ^_^

Review: The Lotus 2-Eleven Super Sports Car

HETHEL, England -- The Lotus 2-Eleven is $80,000 of race car so singular in purpose and flawless in execution that it can make your grandmother look like Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton.

Almost.

I discovered this at the Lotus test track when I nearly grazed a cone taking a corner at 70 mph, then stood on the brakes with the next turn approaching at 120. Any other car would have punished me with a skid and a spin. The 2-Eleven shrugged it off, its traction control and anti-lock brakes making me look good as I took the turn at 50.

Simply put, the 2-Eleven is one of the best track cars money can buy. Loud, fast and smooth, it'll hang with all but the priciest German and Italian supercars without the nightmarish maintenance bills.

Lotus drew deep from its racing heritage with the 2-Eleven, named for the gorgeous Lotus 11 of the late 1950s. Its obsession with saving weight reaches insane levels here, and the 2-Eleven weighs a scant 1,477 pounds. The bodywork, made from monofilament fiberglass, accounts for just 80.

The car doesn't have anything that isn't absolutely necessary to make it accelerate, turn or stop. Leather upholstery? Stereo? Headlights? Pfft. The 2-Eleven doesn't even have doors. It is designed for one thing only -- circumnavigating a track in as little time as possible. It's not even street-legal in the U.S., where it will arrive later this year with a $79,500 price tag.


A mere 1.8 liters is able to crank out 252 horsepower with the aid of a supercharger that pumps the engine with air. High-powered cars in this class often have engines with twice the volume.

Photo: Bruce GainRace-spec hardware includes Ohlins coil-over shocks with remote reservoirs, AP Racing brakes with Goodridge stainless steel lines and forged alloy wheels with Yokohama tires. The suspension offers so much adjustment that Lotus includes directions for setting it up.

Glorious quantities of power flow from a 1.8-liter supercharged Toyota engine with variable valve timing. It's good for 252 horsepower and a zero-to-60 time of 3.8 seconds. It's quicker than a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and a tick or two slower than a Ferrari F430. The 2-Eleven can keep up through the quarter mile (12.2 seconds), but the two cars easily outrun the 2-Eleven's top speed of 150 mph.

The bare-aluminum interior sports an SCCA-spec roll cage, six-point safety harness and a fire extinguisher.

There's no windshield to speak of, so a full-face helmet is mandatory. Don't bother looking for paddle shifters behind the steering wheel, either. You change the 2-Eleven's six gears with a lever between the seats, just as God and Colin Chapman intended. Lotus says paddle shifters add dead weight and needless complication.

The company also downplays the level of technology in the 2-Eleven, insisting that it focused more on aerodynamics and engine design than algorithms and sensors. Don't let that fool you.

Adjustable traction control limits slip from 7 percent to 100 percent (at which point traction control is turned off entirely, and you're on your own). It's never intrusive, and with the anti-lock brakes, you can confidently push the 2-Eleven to its limits, assuming you're good enough.

If you aren't, the 2-Eleven will let you look like you are.

ZAP Announces Plans for $30K Performance Electric Car
Published February 6, 2008


ZAP's futuristic-looking three-wheeled two-seater is being developed with the help of British car company, Lotus.
California-based automaker ZAP, which stands for Zero Air Pollution, has announced plans for a new electric car, called the Alias, that will be able to do 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 156 miles per hour—and cost about $30,000. The Alias’ motors will generate 320 horsepower, almost as much as a Porsche 911 Carrera, which costs roughly three times more. ZAP said the car will also have a range of at least 150 miles per charge and could go into production as early as Spring 2009. The futuristic-looking three-wheeled two-seater is being developed with Lotus, the British car company. The Alias concept was born last year after ZAP and Lotus worked together on a feasibility study regarding the next generation of electric vehicle technologies.

ZAP’s goal for the project was to bring an affordable performance-driven electric vehicle to the market, challenging electric carmakers Tesla and Fisker, as they gear up production of their significantly more expensive offerings. "The performance goals are attainable because the pace of new technology is accelerating,” said ZAP CEO Steve Schneider.

More details of the project are set to be announced at the National Automobile Dealers Association conference in California this weekend, but motorists can already reserve an Alias for a $5,000 deposit on ZAP's website. ZAP's current product offerings primarily consist of neighborhood electric vehicles with limited top speed and driving range. The company has sold more than 100,000 vehicles in more than 75 countries.

THE NEW LAMBORGHINI REVENTION 2008 (THE 1.4 MILLION $ CAR)




Lamborghini’s new jetfighter-inspired supercar has finally broken cover and we can now reveal that the €1 million supercar will be called the ‘Reventón.’ The car will be manufactured in a limited run of just 20 copies and is powered by a 650hp 6.5L V12 engine. Peak torque stands at 660Nm and drive is sent through the permanent Viscous Traction AWD system via Lamborghini’s e-gear transmission. As in the original Murciélago LP640, the Reventon accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and has a maximum speed of over 340km/h.
Though based on the Murciélago LP640, the new Reventón features a new body and an army green interior. Carbon-fiber is used extensively for the body with the panels glued and riveted to a chassis, which blends both composite materials and steel in its construction. The front is characterized by the acute angle of the central ‘arrow’ nose cone, which is flanked by the forward-facing air intakes.
The engine hood is made from glass laminate and features a marked arrow angle. Other unique details include the fuel-cap, which is milled from a solid aluminum block. Up front, the Reventón uses seven LED for the daytime running lights and another nine for the indicators.
