That’s a quick-looking Lotus… It is. The fastest road-going Lotus ever, in fact. If you get the one without the tail wing, it’ll go very close to 200mph. The version with the wing, and balancing aero at the front, is dragged down to a piffling 190mph, but at that speed it makes the same downforce as the Lotus 72 grand prix car in which Jochen Rindt won his posthumous world championship in 1970. Obviously downforce slows it down on the straights, but what about corners? Good point. At a track the GT430 is also the fastest ever number-plated Lotus. Even quicker than the road version of the 3-Eleven.
