The Revenant - Lotus Exige Gt3 Trackweapon By Datum Motorsport

Hi fellas, so proud to present here to you the result of many years developing a Lotus Elise 111R.
I started by making it a Lotus Elise Trophy UK series ellegible car but a couple of years ago I had big crash on the track and from then on the rebuild project we went a bit "up the hill".

The list of what it has got inside is endless, the most remarkable is Hewland Sequential gearbox with Geartronics paddle shift, Rotrex 38-61 compressor and obviously fully forged 2ZZ engine.

On its actual shape delivers 421,3 PS on the Dyno roll and weights 800Kgrs (1765 pounds).

This is the first test on the track since we did the last step forward on the electronics.
Is not even my fastest lap time there and the test wasn't 100% ok as you can notice some detonations at the end of it that later on went worse, but the general feelings were terrific, specially about the last Ohlins suspensionn upgrade, adding the bottles to my set of 46" dampers.

Excellent sounds on track. Feel free to tighten up the passenger harness a bit;}
