Drag race: Exige 430 Cup v. Audi RS5 v. Porsche Cayman GTS

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/lotus...195200735.html

With the usual disclaimers around driver ability, tires, altitude, weather, climate change, Russian interference, mideast tensions, etc.

Audi claims 0-60 in 3.7, whereas this car achieved 3.5 as measured,

Porsche claims 4.4, which is dead on.

Lotus claims 3.2, and in this "test," 3.6 was achieved.

While the results were close, the Lotus was still pulling away it appears.

I would expect better with a 1200 pound weight advantage...... but the 120 ft lb torque advantage of the Audi made it close

Interesting how much torque that motor makes for its size

Shocked by the Audi, too. WTF? flappy paddle vs 6MT AWD vs RWD

** save ~10 lbs gain 1 hp ** EQ: Y=(190*X) / (1984-X) where Y is (HP) and X is (lbs)
