Back in 2011 Lotus unveiled the T125. This was a near-F1 spec’ single-seater, whose million-dollar price tag bought you not just the car, but entry into a kind of private racing league, a team of mechanics and a driving coach.

The project was a spectacular failure, with only a few cars built and delivered before everything went a bit Pete Tong. But now the T125 is back, thanks to a New Zealand-based company called Rodin Cars.

It’s taken the T125 and improved upon it, adding its own (often 3D-printed) components such as a new titanium exhaust, titanium steering wheel and composite seats. The first five cars are currently being assembled.

Prices start at $650,000. Which isn’t too bad, considering what you’re getting. The FZED uses a 3.8-litre Cosworth V8 making 675bhp and 9,600rpm, which Rodin claims can run for over 3,000 miles on regular, 98-octane petrol before it needs a rebuild. It can reach 100mph from rest in just five seconds, and weighs just 610kg thanks to liberal use of composites and fancy metals.
