It's time for an almighty petrol vs electric drag race!

We have actually lastly got our hands on the brand new, all-electric , and it will take on versus Yianni's Urus Performante!

So let's have a look at the statistics. Beginning with the , two electrical motors power it, and these integrate to produce an amazing 905hp and 985Nm of torque! Power is sent out to all four wheels, and this almighty EV ideas the scales at 2,640 kg! It's quite costly though, rolling up with a starting price of ₤ 120,000.

But that beginning cost is nothing compared to the Lambo, which rolls up with a starting cost of ₤ 209,000! Under the bonnet, you'll discover a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 which can put down 666hp. It's a reasonable bit lighter than the Lotus, weighing in at 2,150 kg.

So the Lotus is well up on power, but it's likewise well up on weight! Will the half-tonne weight distinction prove definitive? There's only one method to find out for sure … LET'S RACE!

  12. @SinglePemain Avatar

    That “Off means off” thing is legit cool, Lotus is actually honest and sticks with the definition of “Off”, not trying to make the driver feel like a hero even though they didn’t possess enough skill to handle 900 hp.

    1. @ASemiChub Avatar

      100% agree, you’ve asked for it off so you’re having it off instead of “off”. Get what you ask for, nothing different!

    2. @jonnowocky8179 Avatar

      all well and good saying that – but its not like it’s got a differential, so how would you have 100% off behave? Equal power to both back wheels all the time? throttle input mapping is still going to be regulated, so in essence there’s no such thing as ‘off’. Being unstable in a straight line with little feedback doesn’t sound like a bonus to me

Will never ever sell it. My daily driver and maintenance cost is basically zero. Fuel economy isn’t great in traffic but highway economy is actually pretty good!

    Mat, mate, it’s not that you’re not good at it (drifting), it’s just that you make the same mistake most drivers do when they attempt to drift, and… As Sam will tell you (because I am here in LA and have done my fair share of stunt driving) – it is about mass versus velocity versus the grip of your tires. You could have maintained that drift with a higher initial velocity, although the arc of your drift would have taken you into the grass off of the side of the runway. Primarily because of the conditions, now I know, I may look or act like it son, but I’m British and I always appreciate it when men like Sam (because we British are the best damn drivers on the planet) come around and show people how it’s done. If you would like an example of this, Mat, I suggest you watch Talladega nights, the legend of Ricky Bobby. A buddy of mine did the driving for that and executed one of the best J-turns I’ve ever seen. Must’ve been going 60 miles an hour. It’s all about velocity baby. I’ll be back in my home country in the fall, if I’ve got some time, maybe Sam and I will you how it’s done, son. (and actually, now that I think about it, I have another buddy (some Asian kid who used to drive Formula One or formula 3, I can’t remember his name – well, it’s been a decade, but Sam might know him… Stunt drivers aren’t unionized or anything… who did an amazing J turn in a green BMW down a set of steps for a mission impossible film, so that might be the best J-turn. Now I’m going to be in trouble with both of them when I see them😂
