Lotus Esprit top speed fast & furious
Some guy in Florida nearly buries the needle in his lotus esprit. 4 cylinder lotus with a stock turbo and a stock chargecooler. This is a "1994 lotus esprit S4". He let off the accelerator at 168 mph when the built-in radar detector went off. Too much sun reflection on highway, otherwise great video. At 1:10, he slows down for traffic---watch past the 2 minute mark when he really gets on it. Camera he used was the Drift HD 170. Small dial in center is the turbo Boost guage. To the right is the speedo, to the left is the tach. Bottom right is the temp. Bottom left is oil pressure. You have to watch the turbo Boost guage to see when he really gets on it (small center dial). When it is halfway, he is just cruising at 120-130 mph, when it goes full dial, then he is getting on the accelerator. And no he isn't trying to destroy the transaxle in the 1/4 mile, he is cruising to a top speed and being cautious!

Top Gear Lotus Exige S vs Ford Mustang
The Lotus Exige (pronounced /ɛɡˈziːʒ/) is a two-door, two-seat sports car made by Lotus Cars. It is essentially a coupé version of the Lotus Elise, which is a roadster that is mid-engined and has been in production since 1996. The original Exige (NA or naturally aspirated Exige) was launched in 2000 and had a 1.8 L Rover K Series engine in VHPD (Very High Performance Derivative) tune. It produced 177 bhp (132 kW; 179 PS) in standard form and 192 bhp (143 kW; 195 PS) in the "track spec" version. In 2004, the Series 2 Exige was introduced. It features a 1.8 L 16-valve DOHC Toyota/Yamaha engine that produces 190 bhp (142 kW; 193 PS) with the Toyota engine designation of 2ZZ-GE.[1] Compared to the Series 2 Elise, it has a front splitter, fibreglass hardtop roof with roof scoop, rear engine cover, and rear spoiler. The sole purpose of these aerodynamic additions to the base Elise is to create more downforce (almost 100 lb (45 kg) of downforce at 100 mph (160 km/h) in the Exige versus 13 lb (5.9 kg) at 100 mph (160 km/h) in the Elise). In February 2005, Lotus announced a limited production run of 50 Exiges, using the Toyota engine with a Supercharger, that increases the power output to 243 bhp (181 kW; 246 PS). These vehicles were only available in yellow or black, representing the colours of Lotus Sport, and are badged 240R. They have a projected 0-60 mph (0--100 km/h) time of 3.9 seconds and 0-100 mph (0--160 km/h) of 9.9 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h) at a cost of £44,000.00 (approximately $72,500.00 or €51,000.00).[citation needed] The North American Exige was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2006. In February 2006, Lotus announced the Exige S model which used a supercharged Toyota engine producing 220 bhp (164 kW; 223 PS).[2] The S was also made available in North American markets as a 2007 model.
