WHAT IS THE POSSIBILITY OF PUTTING THE SKYLINE GTR34 ENGINE INTO THE ELISE? THIS WILL EASILY GIVE 400HP TO 500HP TO THE LOTUS.

Have you looked at a rb26dett before?

Have you looked at an elise engine bay?

But to answer your question first I have to ask, how much money do you have? That is directly related to the "possibility" of putting the motor in.

Putting a iron block engine in an Elise? :no: Not to mention the fact that the I6 will be about 50% longer than the current I4 in there. Plus where are you going to find a fwd transmission that mates to a rb26?

Maybe he was inspired by this.
Responding to the double-engine "trend", RC Engineering raised the bar another notch. Russ Collins built the "Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe", a thundering, three-engine, nitromethane-burning, Honda. This frightening machine became the first, seven-second motorcycle in drag racing..."

The Worlds Only Lotus Sport Exige 300RR. Serious inquiries only History

The Lotus Sports Exige 300RR was built for Lotus' parent company, Proton Cars. Based on the award winning aluminum bonded chassis of the production Elise, the Exige 300RR was Intended to be Lotus' reentry into International level motorsports. The one of a kind Exige 300RR is powered by a 400BHP Swindon built GM V6 derived from a DTM unit. Designed primarily around the Japanese Super GT regulations as well as various national level GT Championships, it's configuration could be easily altered to suit various race series. The Exige 300RR also garnered quite a stellar competition history. It's the only car to win the 12hr Merdeka Millennium Endurance race back to back (2005 & 2006). In 2007, it won the HKS Time Attack challenge in Malaysia, against the all conquering HKS CT230. The car even competed in individual FIA GT and Super GT events in 2005, making it the only race vehicle to have competed in both championships. The car was retired from racing in 2008 by it owners, Proton Cars. This is a rare opportunity to own a modern classic that is bound to appreciate considerably over time.
