If this has been posted before you have my apologies. I thought it was rather interesting. Anyone have more info?

Who said Lotuses were not about acceleration and top speed?

I wonder what motor/mods it is running?

That is about the level of performance I would like, but can not currently afford :(

Interesting that the scoop on the top has the opening facing towards the back. I would think this is to expell air buildup in the engine compartment from whatever source or flow.
All I can find googling it is that it is a turbo'd 2L VTec.
And a guy named Dawie Joubert owns it.
Why is it the only thing I can think of would probably get me banned from here... :D

You can make anything go fast in a straight line.

I'd prefer an Elise GT1 :)

With all due respect, 200mph is a little different. 200mph isnt an easy number to achieve. ( please noone point out rocket powered cars on the salt flats)

But yeah, I'd rather have a GT1 too. :)
HI Jenn,
First year bone stock hayabusa bike hit 203 as I recall before the government made them put in restrictors on the speed.

Having ridden 130-140 on a bike, 200 must be very fasssssssssssssst!!
