world's faster lotus no more....

How Did The 'World?s Fastest Lotus' Crash Into A Freeway Wall?

quote...
"The Ronin Exige, aka the self-proclaimed 'World's Fastest Lotus', is a supercharged and turbocharged 680-horsepower monster. But yesterday morning it was put into the wall of California's 101."
...
"was rear ended by some ******* **** in a Porsche while on the fwy. He hit my left rear and spun me, I ended up in the right side wall...."

I guess this means the Porsche was faster than the Ronin?? not only able to keep up, but was quicker and tapped the bumper?


on a side note, glad everyone was okay.




edit: I just saw that others have seen it and posted into the other forum post. my bad (repost)

Weird how can you get rear ended on a desolate highway? Seems fishy to me like the seagull that flew infront of the veyron in galveston.

Anyways hate to see this and glad everybody is ok. He certainly is a master wordsmith.

He is saying he got hit on the exact same corner that went into the rail... and that the Porsche sped off never to be seen again?

I guess the worlds fastest Lotus is still slower than a Porsche. :(

Agreed though, glad to hear he is okay.

Accidents happen regardless who's at fault and I'm just glad both drivers are ok...if the chassis is not damaged, I'm sure Frank will have that car running in no time. :up:

Why would anyone jump to the conclusion that the Porsche - if there was one - was faster? How do you know Ronin's wasn't going 60, and got hit by someone going 70? You can be a bonehead at any speed.

Do you have a picture of the front?

That car could repaired and back on the street by the weekend, it's hardly damaged at all.
Since he said that it put him in the wall, after it hit him in the rear!
