Lotus Elise GT1

Lotus Elise GT1 was created as a competitor McLaren F1 GTR, Ferrari F40 GTE, Venturi 600LM, Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR, Porsche 911 GT1, etc. The company does not have at its disposal the resources of the car giants, knew that he could not afford to design a purely rally car, so it was decided to combine the two in one - a car that will be of interest to customers to drive around the city and it will be competitive in the conditions of the race track. The first Lotus Elise GT1 was completed in 1997, the same year he took part in the annual competition in Le Mans, however, did not reach the finish due to technical problems.

As a base was chosen an old chassis Elise, however, he was subjected to significant changes. Firstly, has been slightly increased the length of the car, in order to improve its aerodynamics. Secondly, the basic material for the Lotus Elise GT1 has become carbon fiber, and not aluminum, as it was before. The heart was to become a 3.5-litre V8 engine Lotus, however, after the failure of the road tests of the Lotus Elise GT1 are equipped with 6-liter Chevrolet LT5 capacity of 608 HP. As a result, the Lotus Elise GT1 accelerated up to a hundred for 3.2s, top speed of 378 km/h.
