I'd imagine it's a sound clip unrelated to the car that was added in post. While it's beautifully filmed, Russell's voice is weird in the video too, it's got a very strange reverb.

Anyone here is completely free to dislike the Evija or any other Lotus. If they dislike all Lotus cars and people I would suggest that there are better places to spend their spare time. Criticism

Going tomorrow but I've already had a sneaky peek. This for me is one of the most remarkable figure from the press release, I'm not sure many have grasped the significance of it yet - 4.4m long,

I know I'm biased but that is one hell of a good looking car!  Absolute beauty!  I don't think anyone has bought out a car as elegant and one that performs as well is this (predicted) for a while! 😍

Can we chip in a few bob each and a get forum car to share around?  😉

Oh and regarding the "ultimate track day car" statement from Lotus.   hmm I'm not sure I agree with that.  Don't get me wrong this will be an extremely high performance car but I just think theres too much against it to call it a track car.  The weight while amazing for a BEV is pretty high for a track car and also where the hell are you going to charge it?  The powertrain sounds like its been designed to give consistent power all day long.  Rather than the current crop which give max power for 2 laps and then overheat and throttle back.  But just don't see this as a track car.  Reality is most of these cars will be in a collectors garage but the few that do go outside and get their tyres dirty I see this more of a road car than a track car?  Well planned road trip in the Alps making regular stops at charge points etc...

While I'm not suggesting that it is the ultimate track car, I seem to remember that it's 200 miles in 'touring mode' and 8 mins at 'max power', I wonder where you'd need less than 8 mins to enjoy a track? The batteries are also actively cooled which is why they can charge/discharge so fast, as developed with WIlliams Advanced Engineering who are responsible for the Formula E batteries. Also, the fast chargers are likely to appear at racetracks before anywhere else.

Just for clarity - and it’s important for us all to know - how far and fast will it travel in the 8 minutes??

Only here once

The 'Ring has then between every garage. Snetterton, Silverstone are 2 that I know with their own petrol stations.

The fast chargers are available at Nurburg already and I'm sure most worthy car club motorsport tracks will get them fitted before the end of the year.

So, for a sub-8 minute lap time at the 'Ring and chargers to boot, I'd say it's job done. 👍
