Ecological Lotus Elise

Model highly appreciated by passionate speed, Elise already has a respectable career. The car whose engine is not anything different with one common front, 1.8 liters, which you can have about any current compact, is handling the word definition, if we could say that.
Elise has a normal engine, taken from Toyota, which delivers 135 HP. Nothing impressive, but that’s not all. The machine is very good for Chapter aerodynamics and especially Chapter weight. Elise weights only 860 kg, and this may explain how the face on the circuit, more supercars with large engines.
But Lotus has prepared a special Elise and May, an ecological model that was “relieved” of 32 kg. It may not sound very much, but this represents about 3.7 percent of initial weight of the car. For this reason it is expected that car to accelerate better than the model “difficult”, which however needs only 6.1 seconds to reach 100 km / h.

240 Mph Wooden Supercar

I bet you don’t believe me, but it is true! The car presented in the feature images is really made out of wood: plywood, maple and MDF. It is the creation of designer Joe Harmon, a North Carolina State University student who worked with fellow undergraduate designers to create the world’s first wooden supercar.
Harmon declared: “We aren’t trying to sell anything, we aren’t trying to save the world, and we aren’t advocating that everyone should drive a wooden car. This project is a scholastic endeavour in which we are simply trying to explore materials, learn, teach, share ideas and stimulate creativity.
