Hammond driving the icons: Lotus Carlton

Picture 5 of 6

It's not all thuggish power, though - it was and is sophisticated. Multi-link semi-trailing rear suspension keeps things under control. It's even self-levelling, presumably for those times when the body in the boot is a really big one. The ventilated front discs are certainly good for their time, and the twin-turbo configuration means peak torque pops up at an ever-ready 4,200rpm. The gearbox, a 6spd manual from a Corvette ZR1 and the heavier-than-heavy clutch are the only welcome reminders of this car's brutal, in-yer-face potency.
