Verdict On New Car

22 posts in this topic

5.7 l making 180 BHP? Wow! It shows you how times have changed, when a modern F1 car (~700 horse?) is a 1.6l. For the record, I think its nuts! But then, is my car. And so are the cars of most of the people on here. I hope you have great fun with it. It's not quite for me, but I can certainly understand why people like them.

I agree...But some of those engines only last about 100-200 miles before they blowup

The lack of grunt doesn't seem to matter at all - I have a completely different mindset when I drive it than to either the Elise or Esprit. Took it for one of my fave drives round Ladybower & Derwent yesterday and while I rant at slow drivers when I'm in the Loti, I'm quite happy to rumble around at 40 in the beast. Sorry I beg to report I had my left elbow out of the window aswell.
