Lotus on acid – ‘Extrema’

28 01 2009

Ebay may be home to some of the worst badly-modded motors but it also holds the occasional gem, including the monster Lotus ‘Extrema’.

Based on the Exige, the Extrema features a 649bhp LS9 V8 lump from the ChevyCorvette and weighs in at just 970kg thanks to its carbon body. It’ll hit 60mph in 2.9 seconds, 100mph in 7 seconds and carry on to 200mph. Not bad for £60,000.
