Presenting The World’s Fasted Lotus [Video]
“Rocket fuel and Liquid Schwartz” is what powers this custom Lotus owned by Frank Profera, an ex-cab driver from New York, now living in California and he has a passion for fast cars – very fast cars.
It took six years to build this beaut and it weighs in at 2,150lbs with a twin charged 1.8L engine pumping out 680 wheel horsepower which apparently gives it a better power-to-weight ratio than Mario Andretti’s Formula One Lotus.
This folks is pure unadulterated geek car pr0n as the video provides some back history as well as diving into what makes this beast run.
First though here’s a couple more images for you and then the video.
