    So they are going to use a sooped up Exige to show off to youngsters at talks designed to slow these kinds of people down........

    Great use of public funding

    Sheffield used to have a Rover 800 series many years ago with an American drag engine fitted which was much faster, also in Plymouth the local plod were using XJS V12s and Porshe 911turbos so how the hell can this poxy lotus be the fastest???

    as discussed in the original thread - this is simply an advertising gimmick, wholly paid for and supplied by lotus. It is NOT operational, nor will it ever be. None of anybody's hard earned tax will be wasted.

    No normally they are around 3mph too fast. I think they are alowed to be something like 6% too fast but they can't be too slow.
