can this be achieved in any lotus model? If so, how did you go about it? Thank in advance...
Transplant a flat-plane V8 engine into one - or just buy a V8 Esprit.

Of course it can. Simply install any high-revving flat-plane v8 or v12 engine. It doesn't even have to be a ferrari engine.

But aside from that, no you won't get a ferrari sound.

Install a noise-cancellation device focusing on your exhaust and other engine sounds, then use a high powered stereo system to pipe in the desired Ferrari sounds.

I love Ferrari's in every way... but why would you want that sound. To me they sound very so so.

+1... V8 Esprits sound very similar :)



I personally prefer Lambo music to Ferrari music, in general.

Sure enough. It always sounded like someone was ripping the air when they cranked up the one at my old office. Loved that sound.
Yup - it takes more than just a flat plane crank to get make a car sound Italian but the Lotus 918 sounds mighty nice to these ears.
:D

Get a Ferrari.. Duh!!
Next question!

@texige - Mercedes engines do deliver a very peculiar note though, I might be a bigger fan of them.

Well, if it's a distinct sound you seek, you really need look no further than this:
