true, i wasn't belittling the cost...it just seems a bit...umm..i don't know really, a lot of money for a handbuilt v8, wedged into an exige...

Would take the veyron everyday just because of those billet titanium indicator/washer stalks

The "no fault of his own" bit is controversial no? A lot of discussion re: what happened. Not that I know any better or believe one side more than the other. He just has a lot of bad rep which is a shame since he quite clearly built such an epic car.

Not seen franks car before.
He says the veyron weighs 4.14lb per hp. His lotus 3.89lb per hp. That gives his car a 50% better power:weight than the veyron.

I say he is american and I can't listen to any more of it

he said the veyron was 4.15, an e900 GTR was 3.89 a '78 lotus f1 was 2.8 and this is 2.7.

Depends how you fiddle what "50% better" means, but you heard the lotus value incorrectly.

Whatever - it is (was) still mentally fast. You should watch the rest.

Oh your right. I thought he had made up a name for it. I was already at my limit tbh. I didn't hear him out.
Good call.
Note to self: Not all americans stick 50% on everything.

If anyone has owned a Lotus Elise platform car you know for sure there is nothing that could be done to it to make it £600,000's worth.

Franks car is much more interesting but I must say I think 300bhp is about the sweet sport for an Elise.

Franks new project a 2-11 will be interesting to see when complete.
