That is just the generator engine...it works at one small RPM band! It is not all that difficult to make an engine work very efficiently in one small RPM band. That is what you are seeing here! Now the electric motors driving the wheels on the car probably put out a total of 1200-HP! But the average of the HP around one lap of the track must be less than 400-HP for that 400-HP engine to have enough power to propel that race car.

Therefore not a good engine for a Lotus or Colin...
