Wow. Sounds like a homerun for the price.

In UK, it starts at £4000 more than a fully loaded Supra.

UK price also include 20% VAT. So you cannot do direct conversion.

Ah so I guess he followed in the footsteps of Martin Brundle and David Couthard. Brundle was never knighted though--maybe he was involved in shenanigans in his youth or something lol. Then again he was never F1WC either. Oh and Damon Hill too, can't forget about him. And he's OBE too, one up on the MBE guys haha.admiralackbar wrote: ↑ Sir Jenson Button is a regular on Sky F1 TV coverage so is still a familiar face for F1 fans.

Not trying to be snobbish, but as good as that engine is, I just couldn't pay 100k for a 4-cylinder turbo. It's like the new AMG 63 with a hybrid 4-cylinder turbo, just doesn't seem right.ES_Revenge wrote: ↑
As for the engines yeah would definitely take the AMG 4cyl. Why would they even bother offering the Toyblowta one?

Isn't a sports car supposed to handle as well as be fast. If the lower HP motor allows you actually USE almost every gear on the street with the nanny options off. Enjoy the power curve without going above, go directly to jail speeds, by the time you hit 2rd gear. It might not be such a bad thing. Especially since the Toyota motor will probably last longer. Now if you wanna track the car totally different maybe. But then why not let your team owner buy it add all the high HP mods possible and you just show up with your gloves and helmet to give a it rip during race weekends. Then again if you are good enough to have a drive like that you probably are not going to waste it in a Lotus LOL.ES_Revenge wrote: ↑ Car looks awesome. I was expecting electric TBH but apparently they do have a different car (the Evija) which will be electric.
As for the engines yeah would definitely take the AMG 4cyl. Why would they even bother offering the Toyblowta one? Yeah yeah I know they have been using that in other cars but you know when it's Toyblowta the "400hp" is more like 312 of anyone else's hp, and this isn't a RAV4 here its a sports car so no time for that nonsense. Actually I'm sure the Lotuses with the engine might be fine but put it in a Toyblowta and I'm sure it's going as fast as a similar weight car with 100hp less lol. Don't trust them.
Anyway more importantly...what the heck ever happened to Jenson Button? Once a fierce competitor for Sir Hamilton, later never heard from until now...featured in YT videos advertising a Lotus. I mean the latter is not really bad in any way but you know what I mean.

While true, you don't have to be a race car driver to drive on a track... Trouble is unless you can afford to rent the track for yourself to enjoy alone. Once you are out there, you are surrounded by RACE CAR DRIVERS who either are or are not either. They paid their money too so you get to take your chances as to whether they know which one they are and drive. So they do not get dangerously behind on their braking or ahead on their steering while you are in the vicinity.
