VIDEO: The World's Fastest Lotus? 680bhp ATW Twin-Charged
USA TV show, Drive take crazy home brew Californian Lotus engineer, Frank Profera's mega horsepower, superlight Lotus for a spin, and get the full story. Drive say: "Frank spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder. Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel horsepower with a twin-charged (turbo and supercharged) 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed." Mad, bad and dangerous modified machine... as you can see here.
